What is a digital mindset? Why is it important? And can non-technical people really contribute in digital roles?

In this week's episode of The Mind Tools L&D Podcast, Ross D and Ross G explore these questions with researcher, consultant and author of Digital Mindset, Dr Paul Leonardi.

We discuss:

  • How anyone can adopt a digital mindset
  • The importance of collaboration, computation and change
  • How much you need to know to ‘sniff test’ statistical claims.

The Digital Mindset: What It Really Takes to Thrive in the Age of Data, Algorithms, and AI, by Paul Leonardi and Tsedal Neeley, is available now.
