Break the Digital Addiction
Understand the Roots of the Compulsion to Be Online and Reclaim Your Life
Is all the time that you spend on your computer, iPad, and/or smart-phone crowding out any time to reflect on your life and its direction? Are you finding it difficult to focus on your larger life goals due to the vast amounts of time you spend online? Do you reminisce over the days when you actually spent time with family and friends during which you were focused on each other, rather than being “alone together” in the same room while each person taps onto a keypad instead of into the needs and motivations of the others?
CSL President Anthony Silard once asked 300 people at a leadership conference to share what they had done over the previous month that had most contributed to their happiness. There were about thirty responses—ranging from “spending time with my daughter” and “going dancing” to “going for a long hike in the mountains”—not one of which involved time spent online. What brings happiness to your life? Are you finding the time for it, or letting your life pass you by as you manically try to return every email and text?
In this cutting-edge workshop, CSL will walk you and/or your team through the most common causes and symptoms of digital addiction. We will help you ask yourself some tough questions about why you feel so compelled to be online and what you can do about it. Let CSL help you and/or your team to confront your overwhelming over-reliance on technology while you still have an opportunity to do something about it.
