Author, entrepreneur, workplace expert and 2006 college grad Dan Schawbel says that his mission in life is to support the work lives of people in his age group. Dan is a well-known expert on the millennial generation. And he has a savvy way of talking to young professionals, and offering them practical advice for building careers.

This episode focuses on Dan’s new book: Back to Human – How Great Leaders Create Connection in the Age of Isolation. Although he’s a social media star, Dan says the dominance of technology is contributing to an epidemic of loneliness in the American workplace. He urges young professionals to build real human relationships, and he says that his goal with this book is to “bring some sanity back to the workplace.”
