How Nonprofit Leaders Retain Their Influence vis-à-vis the New Technology Norms
Have you ever asked yourself why you choose every day to spend less time interacting with people in person and more time sending and receiving brief digital messages while sitting alone behind a pixilated screen? As we furiously type into our keypads in search of the Holy Grail—an empty inbox—our happiness dissolves. On a team level, our cohesion and team unity has also decayed as we engage in “efficient” online team dialogues that serve mostly to generate reduced morale, polarization, and silos. Never in human history have we been in contact with so many people and connected with so few.
In this session, Dr. Anthony Silard will help you identify the inner motivations stimulated in our technology age that often steer you away from meaningful connections with others and toward an empty, isolated existence. Emphasizing the role of nonprofit leaders as attachment figures, Anthony will then help you design strategies to leverage the benefits of technology while not allowing it to continue distracting you from what you most value.
Session Learning Objectives
Participants will be able to:
- identify the basic tenets of attachment theory and their implications for nonprofit leadership;
- discuss how to develop healthy, secure attachments with their team members so they can focus on their work rather than their relationship with the leader;
- outline personalized intrapersonal strategies so they can direct their use of technology rather than allowing it to direct them;
- identify the effects of technology-mediated communication on the role of leaders and the development of trust with followers in nonprofit organizations; and,
- discern the relationship between attachment and the emotion competencies of nonprofit leaders.
The seminar will be held on Thursday, February 18, 2021.
