Meetings versus interactions for society

Thank you (again) Rishad for 6 keys to maximizing the impact of any interaction whether with individuals or groups at your company.

These define our society and our humanity.

Three of them are what we bring to the interaction ( generosity, empathy and attention) and three of them (clarity, belief and energy) are what we want to leave or take from the interaction.

Question: Is this possible at your company or do people who don't do this believe that they already do?


With a technology-focused road map, we can harness the power of digital tools to bridge divides, facilitate constructive discussions, and inspire positive change in society.

Technology has the potential to connect people from different backgrounds and perspectives, making it a valuable resource for fostering unity and cooperation.
