🤖 How to Move Beyond Fear of GenAI to Fully Harness its Transformative Power

🤖 How to Move Beyond Fear of GenAI to Fully Harness its Transformative Power

‘This could destroy our business,’ the CEO of HR compliance giant Mineral said after his first demo of ChatGPT. A year later, here’s how the tech is helping the company re-envision its future.

A little more than a year ago, my CTO asked me to hop on an urgent Zoom. He had something he needed to show me, he said. It was OpenAI’s newly released ChatGPT. As the CEO of a company that delivers HR compliance content and guidance, I was alarmed. “This could destroy our business,” I told him.   

Before any company sets out to implement its AI strategy, its leadership must ask themselves three questions to assess their cultural readiness. 

Fast-forward one year, and we’re in a completely different place. Instead of distancing ourselves from artificial intelligence, we’ve embraced it. We ran experiments on ChatGPT to see how well it could handle compliance questions we receive from our customers. We created an internal task force dedicated to understanding and incorporating AI across our company. Then, we started to build our own custom GPTs to test whether we could combine the best of what we do with this emerging technology. 

Although we pivoted from a place of fear to one of enthusiasm, getting here wasn’t easy. Setting the strategy was relatively straightforward, but creating the cultural foundation was a more complicated undertaking. It took countless conversations, some mistakes, a lot of self-reflection, and careful planning to reenvision both our company and the HR experience of our customers in an AI-enabled world.

🛠️ The most in-demand job skills might not be the ones you think

🛠️ The most in-demand job skills might not be the ones you think

From adaptability to critical thinking to teamwork and collaboration, success at work involves skills you might not think to put on your résumé.

Raise your hand if you’ve gotten so familiar with some of your tasks at work that you can do them practically without thinking. Some rote tasks become this seamless nearly instantly, yet others require certain skills to start with and that muscle develops over time, the more you complete each one.

This became so clear to me this week when training two new team members on parts of our system. The good news is that it forced me to slow down and think through how best to explain each step and what skills are needed to tackle each project. The mix of technical skills and soft/creative ones were thrown into high relief and I couldn’t help but wonder: What are the most basic skills anyone could use to accomplish the most mundane items on a to-do list as well as the more amorphous aspects of teamwork and collaboration?

For example, as early career expert Anna Homayoun noted, “Because Gen Z members saw daily routines completely upended during key developmental years, many could benefit from more time, structure and support to build workflow strategies, manage distractions, and develop professionalism older generations might take for granted.”

There are myriad ways to develop new technical skills, some even at your current employer. According to Indeed, AI-related skills are helping workers who have them make bank.
