Disconnect to reconnect

For Better (Working) Relationships in a Hyper-connected World and a better Work/Life Balance

More detailed information

The benefits of effective communication, empathy, and connection are well-known not only in private spheres but also in building trust within professional relationships and teams. However, our digital addiction has become so severe that we often find ourselves staring at screens rather than engaging with those around us physically. While this may seem harmless, it carries more significant implications than we realize. We have become "the disconnected connected": detached from our immediate experiences and connections but constantly tethered to the outside world.

How can we leverage technology to our advantage and foster meaningful relationships where genuine connections thrive? In this presentation, Florence delves into the impact of constant connectivity on our brains and its consequences for interpersonal relationships. Through insightful observations, practical advice, and actionable tips, attendees will be inspired to be more present and forge valuable connections with both themselves and their colleagues.

Moreover, Florence also addresses the crucial aspect of work-life balance, highlighting the importance of reconnecting with one's personal life to reduce stress and achieve greater overall well-being. This holistic approach not only benefits individual mental health but also enhances productivity and satisfaction in both personal and professional realms.

This presentation is relevant to a wide audience, particularly those interested in cultivating stronger connections within teams or among colleagues in today's interconnected environment while also prioritizing a healthy work-life balance.
