In Contact with Many, Connected with Few

Revitalize Meaningful Connections in Your Personal and Professional Life

Have you ever asked yourself why you choose every day to spend less time interacting with people in person and more time sending and receiving brief digital messages while sitting alone behind a pixilated screen? As we furiously type into our keypads in search of the Holy Grail – an empty inbox – our happiness and well-being dissipates.

On a team level, our cohesion and team unity has also decayed as we engage in “efficient” online team dialogues that serve mostly to generate reduced morale, polarization and silos.

Never in human history have we been in contact with so many people and connected with so few. In this cutting-edge workshop, GLI will help you to first identify the inner motivations stimulated in our technology age that steer you away from meaningful connections with others and toward an empty, isolated existence. GLI will then help you and/or your team to design strategies to leverage the benefits of technology while not allowing it to continue distracting you from what you most value.
