Experience the Joy of Missing Out
Christina Crook’s keynote offering introduces your audience to the meaning and value of the Joy of Missing Out: the personal and professional costs of FOMO, the elements of lasting and meaningful joy, and the life-giving, scientifically-proven power of warm human relationships. She’ll present the evidence-based realities of how toxic hustle, digital isolation, and faulty goal-setting lead to declines in productivity and innovation.

The JOMO Method
Digital Well-Being 101. Based on Christina’s extensive one-on-one work in the exploration of values and goal setting, this workshop closely engages your team(s) to assess how their personal and team values align or misalign with professional objectives, and the role digital well-being plays in their ability to be productive, creative, and healthy.

Beating the Comparison Game

Social media invites unlimited, unrelenting comparison. Personal comparison is one of the most toxic- and the most instinctively human- pursuits that short-circuit our sense of perspective, value, and joy. In this talk, we unpack the pitfalls of social contagion (wanting what others have) and unlock the simple game-changing strategy that stops it in its tracks.
