Calling all snackers! Cheez-its, popcorn, maybe an apple. We love a good snack here at the Nest! Social snacking? Yep, we do that too… but maybe it’s time for lunch?
As a digital marketing team, we understand the technological pull toward an online world that counts liking a friend's Instagram post as a meaningful connection. Do we enjoy the possibilities of technology? Yes! Do we think a Facebook message equals a meaningful connection? Not so much.
Today, our CEO and Momma Bird, Priscilla McKinney, welcomes Ryan Jenkins to discuss breaking the connection barriers in the workplace. As Wall Street Journal best-selling leadership author of Connectable, Ryan has surveyed over 2,000 workers worldwide to discover the answers for quality connection and belonging.
We often confuse meaningful connection with technological convenience. Now don’t take this wrong, sending a quick text to a friend is good. But as Ryan points out, it takes intentionality to visit that friend. As humans, we follow the path of least resistance, so we’re gonna choose convenience over connection every time if we’re not intentional. We’re wired for connection, and social snacking will only keep our loneliness at a manageable level for so long.
Ready to give your team a sense of belonging and connection? Take a seat, grab a snack (but no social snacking) and listen in closely for the story of how Joseph Strauss, the structural engineer behind the Golden Gate Bridge, fostered a sense of connection with a net.
