E-mail and other data keeping you isolated? Your virtual absence sets an example not to focus on interaction with colleagues. This undermines employees’ understanding of how they’re doing and puts everyone at risk for miscommunication.
“When you can’t assess yourself, when you’re unsure of your place in the world, what you end up feeling is alienation,” writes Dalton Conley of New York University and author of Elsewhere, U.S.A., which examines our fragmented digital culture.
Isolation is a problem at work because it puts people at arm’s length from company goals. For things to function properly in groups, ensure that all on your team have their heads in the room and not online—including yourself.
