Are We More Isolated Than Ever in This Age of Technology?

“What’s important is to use technology as a bridge to human connection and not a barrier,” Dan Schawbel, partner and research director at Future Workplace, told Bold Business while discussing his book “Back to Human: How Great Leaders Create Connection in the Age of Isolation.”

We discussed a nationwide survey conducted by Cigna of 20,000 adults in America that shows nearly half are lonely and around 40 percent lack meaningful relationships. Dan said he hopes his book can change the narrative by guiding the next generation of leaders to create a workplace that fosters strong interpersonal skills rather than relying on technology.

“Technology has created the illusion of creation, when in reality, our overuse and misuse of it has made us more isolated and lonely,” he said.
