Everyday Ambassador by Kate Otto

About Everyday Ambassador :

In a world of limitless technology, we are more connected than ever before but our hyper-connected lifestyles threaten our ability to know ourselves and interact with each other. By focusing on the four core values that allow us to become truly “connected” in tech-centric societies—empathy, patience, focus, and humility—Otto demonstrates that the power of technology is not in the tool, but in the intention of the person using it.

Otto helps us lift our heads up from our cell phones and tablets and take a look at the people standing right in front of us.
