The evolution of business tools since the ’50s

COMPUTERCOMPUTER

ince the typing pools and smokefilled offices of the ’50s, our tools for business have evolved. We’ve witnessed the introduction of the personal computer, Internet, email, smartphones, social media, Skype and wireless technology – they all help us connect faster and easier than ever before. After all these years, after all of these advancements, it’s still abundantly clear that the key to business success is the ability to connect with clients, prospects and a wide support network of friends, mentors and professionals. While these new gadgets help us to connect more efficiently, our innate ability to build relationships is the most important tool of all. As technology continues to evolve, we must remember that our ability to communicate with clarity and impact is what really matters. And, as staring at tiny screens becomes our new reality, sometimes a good old-fashioned handwritten note or phone call will make the experience far more memorable for both parties. Our modern tools are essential and most businesses wouldn’t survive without them. That being said, old school business tools like in-person networking and quick thank you calls still have their place.
