Dr. Edward Brodkin and therapist Ashley Pallathra are the leading experts on human connection.

- the importance of "attunement" and how this practice can improve personal well-being and work teams.
- four components of human connection: relaxed awareness, listening, understanding, and mutual responsiveness
- the balance between person-to-person interactions and machines/technology
- the difficulty in accomplishing "attunement" via virtual engagement
