Microsoft - "Hit Refresh"

Updated: May 27, 2019



In a recent conversation (listen to the podcast), Greg and Jill discuss the importance of the cultural refresh at Microsoft--one inspired by Stanford professor Carol Dweck’s research on growth mindset. Like Angela Duckworth at Penn, Dweck discovered that human capability is not fixed at birth but malleable based on effort.

With this key insight, Nadella made lifelong learning a priority at Microsoft--it’s even highlighted on employee badges. The focus shifted from “Know it all" to "Learn it all.” You can grab a copy of Hit Refresh via amazon here.
