Stat of the Month: The Data Tsunami

We know it's a bit ironic to share data on how fast the amount of data is growing, but here are a few facts that made our eyes widen at the seemingly unstoppable growth in global data:
  1. If you stacked a pile of CD-ROMs on top of one another until you reached the current global storage capacity for digital information--about 295 exabytes--it would stretch 80,000 km beyond the moon.
  2. Every hour, enough information is consumed by Internet traffic to fill 7 million DVDs. Side by side, they'd scale Mount Everest 95 times.
  3. 247 billion email messages are sent each day. Up to 80% of them are spam.
Leadership Tip of the Month: Be Willing to Unlearn

Our world is constantly changing. Marketplaces are always evolving. The minds of others are continuously developing. As a result, our knowledge, positions and beliefs can quickly become outdated.

To become a better leader, be willing to "unlearn" things--to change your mind, refine your good ideas, weed out the bad and continuously learn. Instead of focusing on always being right, seek the right outcome.

Developing your ability to unlearn will demonstrate your humility, confidence and maturity to your employees. Ultimately, it will make you a more approachable, authentic and successful leader.
Being Vulnerable Can Actually Make You a Better Boss
