3 CRITICAL SKILLS TO HELP LEADERS THRIVE IN THE AGE OF MACHINE INTELLIGENCE [#CriticalSkills #Leaders #MachineIntelligence]
Agile and adaptable leaders will make smart and effective decisions in this rapidly changing world to ensure that they can make the most of these benefits.
You can begin practicing Agile leadership immediately by embedding Agile business methodology into your organization model, and training your team on Agile innovation methods. It is also time to start using data to stay informed about the changing competitive landscape, any possible threats to your value chain, and growing trends in your consumer base.
A lot of complex data science constitutes any machine-driven product or service. And utility and management of this data is contingent on the relationships between the people, cultures, and processes that surround it.
Diversity in the workforce (gender, cultural, racial and age-related) helps to prevent biases – algorithmic biases which could potentially hurt your brand and disrupt your products/services.
Leaders should also encourage diversity in data sets for more accurate insights. Opting for a diverse range of data science methods also drives stronger performance because hybrid methods often deliver better results than stand-alone techniques.
Teams that work with AI will find themselves freed of many tedious manual and rote tasks that once consumed majority of their time and energy each day. Effectively, they now have more time and attention to focus on strategic and creative thinking. Leaders must be responsible for empowering team members to creatively problem-solve and bring their innovative ideas to life. This will help them deliver the most value to the company and to your cause.
You can immediately begin implementing the following strategies for effective workforce engagement:
• Set clear objectives for your teams and give them the freedom to meet and exceed these goals.
• Replace hierarchical structures in the workplace with a culture of collective decision-making and ownership.
• Look into approaches such as team rotations, online feedback platforms, brainstorming workshops, and innovation groups.
