The digital age can be a very volatile world to live in. To survive and excel as an organization, there is a need to understand the culture and the DNA that is developing around it. Active human connection must be established with all individuals including employees, customers, and the media as a whole in order to stay relevant and sustainable as a business entity. The key is to get back to the basics of empathy, ethics, emotional intelligence, respect for individuality, and critical thinking in a “digital sense.”
