Artificial intelligence (AI) is not coming. It is here. We have only seen the beginning of its promise as well as its disruptions to industries once thought to be immune to automation and algorithms.

If organizations and individuals are to keep up and stay relevant, they must understand AI’s potential, emulate what it does well, and build a culture that welcomes its power while reinforcing the value of the human factor.

As we move forward towards the coming “singularity” where artificial intelligence will become exponentially smarter than humans, we must transition from cognitive skills to social skills. We are already close to the point where we can no longer outthink a machine. We must rely on our interdependent roles and relationships on teams to provide value. In fact, some argue that it will not be the organizations with the best performers that will rule the day. It will be those with the best TEAMS.

I agree.

Thus, the best way to compete with them is to emulate what they do best: work in teams. When we do that, even the most talented people perform beyond their current capability, and they continue to improve through collaboration, challenges and competition. As we have discussed before, the most elite organizations in the world all use teams and coaches to develop their people. When the margin of error is small and the consequences are significant, they would never ask their performers to go it alone. There are no exceptions.

In this edition of the HighPer 15 Webcast, we extended it to 30 minutes because we had a special guest: LMA Hall of Fame Member and AI expert Dr. Mark T. Greene.

In just 30 minutes, you will learn how prepare, educate and inspire your organization to ride the AI wave instead of being overwhelmed by it.
