As younger-gen (I’m not saying young gen intentionally) and Next Gen hires come into organizations and show their incredible aptitude and promise, we’re certainly justified in wanting to reward them and promote them. Continuity is on our minds right now as we search for the light at the end of the tunnel of this current crisis — and look for how we’re going to sustain our organizations for the future. And it’s the bright stars in our own workforce that may wind up leading the way. So how do we best develop them? How can smaller organizations keep pace and provide access to coaching and support? The answer may lie in AI.
An AI-driven digital coach named Amanda is actually proving to be a phenomenal solution for companies looking to train, develop, and educate front-line managers, supervisors, and upcoming leaders. It was launched by Kevin Kruse of LEADX using technology powered by IBM Watson. We’re going to talk about what it is, how it works, and why it’s leveling the playing field for organizations no matter their size. Both 80% of those polled on whether or not they wanted robot coaching, and the same percentage of those polled on whether or not they want human coaching said yes, they do. The bottom line isn’t machine or person. It’s having a coach, period. And the results with Coach Amanda are really compelling.
