Technology, Relationships, Love, Business, Work




When it comes to utilizing technology in our daily lives, can we prioritize better than we are currently? I believe we can. We’ll look at that in our Thought of the Day. And in our interview segment, Dan Schawbel shares how great leaders bring connection to the workplace in an age where technology has created what he calls, an “Age of Isolation.” That and more on today’s show.


Bob's Thought of the Day


We’ll explore:


  • The reality of technology today: what was supposed to be our servant has all-too-often become our master, placing us at its beck and call rather than the other way around.
  • Our need to be aware of how technology can actually hurt our relationships.
  • Why we should love people & use technology rather than love technology & use people.


Interview with Dan Schawbel


You’ll discover:


  • How technology has weakened relationships in the workplace.
  • What is driving the current “experience renaissance.”
  • How to use technology to maximize relationships in the workplace.
  • The four employee engagement factors that can be used to foster healthier and more productive work cultures: happiness, belonging, purpose, and trust.
  • Why work-life balance is a myth, and why we should embrace integration instead.
  • A powerful story about the value of face-to-face communication versus email.
  • Why soft skills become increasingly important as technology becomes more prevalent.
