Summary
  • "In Everyday Ambassador Kate Otto brings people together even as our digital networks pull us further apart. 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. Everyday Ambassador offers a unique solution to those who aspire to truly make a difference in the twenty-first century--revealing the secrets of how to unite people, even when technology keeps us at a distance from others--emotionally and physically. 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. In a time when good citizenship is the new currency of cool, Everyday Ambassador gives us the tactics to connect in our disconnected world"--
  • "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 meaningfully interact with each other. Everyday Ambassador offers a solution to this disconnectivity paradox--reflections, everyday examples, and tools that anyone can use every day and everywhere to maximize technology's capacity for social change. With an emphasis on the core values of focus, empathy, humility, and patience, Everyday Ambassador demonstrates that the power of technology is not in the tool but in the intention of the person using it. Everyday ambassadorship is a process that starts from the inside out and serves our countries, cities, communities, and even our own homes. Changing ourselves is the necessary first step to changing the world"--
