Digital exposure has fundamentally changed the way in which individuals engage with technology. While there are many significant benefits of technology, there is also a growing set of unintended consequences from digital overuse, including so-called “text neck,” loss of productivity, anxiety from fear of missing out (FOMO) and more. Leaders need education and guidance. We are here to help.
