We live in extraordinary times, navigating the uncharted waters of different epidemics while rapidly adapting to the societal, cultural, and digital shifts taking place. Wired Influence narrows in on the widely used and highly addictive technologies we’ve become dependent upon in our new digital workspaces. Learn ways to become more intentional with your use of technology, challenge what we've been 'sold' to believe by the tech giants, and build new ways of working for both you and your team to achieve balance and reconnect to the innate wisdom hardwired within ourselves.
