By Kate Otto, Katherine Otto
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."

    REVIEW QUOTES
"Rich with provocative ideas, "Everyday Ambassador" is a book that will inspire you to create meaningful change on a person-to-person level. The four core values that are explored seem simplistic, but Otto lays out how important they are for anyone who wants to promote compassionate action and social change. With greater focus, empathy, patience, and humility, the world would be a better and more just place to live."--Anthony D. Romero, Executive Director, American Civil Liberties Union
