Alone together 

By Pia Lee, CEO, LIW

 

This weeks bleet comes to you from Silicon Valley. Fascinating and stimulating as ever but a new book by Dan Lyons casts a dark shadow on technology’s impact on working life

He cites the example of two people working beside each other who communicate only on Slack. They could literally look up and talk to each other, but they don’t.

Sherry Turkle of MIT calls this phenomenon “alone together.” Technology that’s meant to bring us together ends up actually disconnecting us from each other.

 

What does this mean for leadership?

We all belong to a squad in or out of work. It’s a human experience that connects and nourishes us.

It is, however, a conscious choice to ‘look up’ and smile.
