In this session, we will explore the brain science behind empathy and focus, the interplay between isolation and connectivity, and the effects of technology on memory. We’ll examine the phenomenon of “virtual distance” and learn strategies for mitigating it and building trust. Lastly, we will connect Emotional Intelligence skills to key project management competencies and look at ways to keep our finger on the pulse of the digital world while nurturing the qualities that make us most human.
