Why You Need a Digital Mindset: How to Use the 30 Percent Rule to Upskill Your Career – Part 1

In The Digital Mindset, “What It Really Takes to Thrive in the Age of Data, Algorithms, and AI,” authors Paul Leonardi and Tsedal Neeley specify the categories of skills that you’ll need and what 30% competence looks like in each of those categories. Once you have achieved the 30%, you will have created the platforms from which you’ll start to think differently — to think digitally. In Part One of my interview with Paul Leonardi, we do a deep dive into the 30% Rule, discuss collaboration, second mind apps, and more!

Paul  Leonardi, is the Duca Family professor of technology management at the University of California, Santa Barbara.  Paul’s Co-author Tsedal Neeley is the Naylor FitzHugh professor of business administration at Harvard Business School — an award-winning scholar, teacher, and expert on virtual and global work.
