To be successful in today’s business world, you must be smart, agile, and savvy. And advancements in communications tools and overall technology have enabled businesses to be smarter, quicker, and more successful overall.

The downside? Businesses now value technology over time. Speed over sentiment. Ease over education.

The truth is, as much as technology has made processes more efficient and faster, it’s also enabled us to be lazy with customers, partners, and prospects. As a business society, we undervalue in-person collaboration in favor of speed and ease, and are losing the human touch in the process.
