The Power of Digital Technology
This is a timely, and a very relevant topic for all of us. I don't care who you are, we are all "Craving Connection" during 2020 with the constant presence of COVID-19, and the "Routine of Quarantine." Zoom and Webex and other video and face time technologies have given us a temporary fix, but it has not corrected our "FIX," and basic human need for human connection and togetherness.
Download a complimentary chapter of my book: Chapter 3, The Power of Digital Technology, and how I flippantly predicted the "ZOOM BOOM," and our friend and family parties and events over ZOOM.
If you are a person wanting greater connection in your life, this book is for you. If you are a leader, who wants to build stronger connections with your team that increaes productivity and employee retention, or a Sales Leader or a sales person who wants to understand how to build stronger relationships based on trust which results in grater sales revenue, this book is a must.
Time and time again, research demonstrates that people do business with people they connect with and trust. Building better connections builds better business results! (employee productivity, employee retention, customer sales, customer retention, loyalty...) Connections Really Do Change Everything!
In this book, Kimberly shares why she is so passionate about connection through her personal journey. She discusses the impact of being "Broken Off," in her childhood and how it impacted and changed her life. She describes the consequences of being broken off and how today's working culture leaves many of us feeling alone and "broken off,' whether it is working in a virtual environment or feeling alone within a group.
Our ability to feel connected and happy at work is just as much a indication of our life expectancy as is diabetes, obesity, and heart disease. As leaders we have a responsibility to practice "Connected Leadership," which is "Modern Leadership."
It is our daily experiences with our employees that our employees aggregate together to formulate their levels of satisfaction and happiness at work, and our success as a leader. You, as a leader have the greatest amount of impact as to whether they stay, or they go.
A good re-read, to stay present: "Good Monday Morning, Kimberly. I finished reading your book and wanted to reach out and let you know how much I enjoyed it. Great tips. It is one that I will re-read often to help keep me in check.
Thanks again for sharing it with me.
