Do You Know Where Your Phone Is?

Most leaders these days know the answer to that question. Of course we know where our mobile devices are! And if we didn't, we might be at risk of nomophobia! But the reason this question is easy is that too often, the device is in front of our face! And our addiction to tech is having a real impact on our ability to lead and connect with others.

Adam Alter joins us to talk about his new book Irresistible: The Rise of Addictive Technology and the Business of Keeping Us Hooked. Adam provides a brilliantly written look at how our obsession with technology is controlling our lives more than we realize. And he offers tools and approaches we can use to take back our teams, families, and lives.
