Warren Bennis: The Father of Leadership Development | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it
Warren Bennis touched so many of us so deeply… from students and consultants, to CEOs and U.S. Presidents.  His depth of mind and presence of character set an example for us all.  A young platoon leader in World War II, a provost and a president at universities, and scholar, Warren [...]

Our digital virtual world may be overshadowing our real personal world.

When people are asked to unplug for 24 hours, there are typically two responses: (1) Most are unwilling to unplug; and (2) Most are functionally not capable of it.

 

Why is it so incredibly difficult to unplug from our virtual world?

 

According to Ray Williams, we are wired for success.  It's not that technology has forced us to be dependent or addicted to technology as if we are victims to it.  What Williams has found is that people "have redefined their identity with the belief that you can only be successful and important if you are plugged in 24/7."

 

With this, "an equal amount of time and energy has not been spent developing greater self-awareness" and inner connection.  The results?  A sense of feeling lost.  A search for greater meaning.  And not being sure who you really are.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 14, 2014 1:36 PM

Do we want to use words like addiction to describe our dependence on useful tool? Or do we need to learn when and what makes technology useful in a particular context?

 

Watch the adults using technology. What role model do they provide? It is not enough to talk. We need to show the way.

"Here are five things to understand as you practice mindfulness:"
