Human-First Technology with Cindy Goldsberry

In a world where technology is an integral part of our lives, balancing the benefits with the need for human connection and emotional well-being is essential. From the workplace to schools and at home, we need to use a critical eye to identify where technology becomes an enabler and where it becomes a disabler.

As a human-first technology company, we’re about the beings, not just the doings.”

– Cindy Goldsberry

Today’s guest Cindy Goldsberry joins us to talk about how technology impacts us as individuals and as a society and what we can do to emphasize the “people” side of people-driven tech. Cindy works with leadership on sustainable growth strategies to mirror the heart of a company’s service, revenue, and growth goals for their workforce and clients. She has been a Partner in Higher State Technology, an MSSP for SMBs, since 2013 and now acts as a Wisdom Guide to leadership and employees as needed. Cindy is currently getting a Professional Masters Degree in “Emotional Well-being Therapy” with the goal of helping catalyze better living in and through business.

In this conversation, Cindy and I discuss the impact of systems on our everyday lives, her perspective on valuing employees as “souls” rather than just “people” in the workplace, the different currencies in life that we need to be well, the immeasurable value of authentic relationships, how you can cultivate better connections, and more.
