January 2023 Monthly Meeting (virtual)

Subject:  Emotional Intelligence In a Digital World


As our lives become increasingly digital, we’re getting more adept at skimming and sampling huge volumes of information… while doing something else at the same time. We live in a state of continuous partial attention, with unlimited amounts of data always at our fingertips. But as we train our brains to switch

tasks and scan, we’re rapidly losing our ability to concentrate, contemplate, and truly connect with others.

Research shows that trust, empathy, and attunement are critical components of high-performing teams.

So how do we build these values and skills (which are central to Emotional Intelligence) when so many of our relationships are mediated by screens and devices?


What You Will Learn

After this one-hour session, learners will be able to:

  • Recognize how our use of technology contributes to cognitive overload
  • Articulate what research suggests about how information addiction may lead to structural and functional changes in regions of the brain
  • Identify physiological changes they can make to improve focus and attention
  • Outline a three-pronged approach for building Emotional Intelligence
  • List concrete ways to mitigate “virtual distance” on teams
