Leading In A Human Way In The Era Of AI & Emerging Technologies


HomeAgendaLeading In A Human Way In…

Session Overview

There is no denying that our world is becoming increasingly complex, and technology driven. The best thing we can do in this world to lead is to be Human and be ourselves.

How do we lead in a human way when technology, competition and capabilities are on the rise?

Earlier, humans were responsible for the jobs that technology has taken over, leaving humans to be humans. As technology prevails and becomes more powerful, what are the critical shifts leaders need to create to lead and create thriving organisations?

The Why:

  • We are living through an era of constant reinvention by advances in technology, global health challenges, climate crisis and changes in social values. How should leaders navigate this? What does leadership look like in this era where turbulence and disruption are the norm?
  • Why is being Human more important than before in this technology driven world?
  • In this talk, Nidhi Chopra, an Enterprise Transformation Consultant and Leadership facilitator with Arvivo Global and an external advisor with Mckinsey & Company will explore the pivotal role of Leadership in the era of AI and other emerging technologies.
  • Technology is a powerful tool for organisations and so are humans. The most important thing you can do to future-proof your career is to simply be human in a technology-driven world. When you develop and embrace those uniquely human skills that technology can’t replicate, you set yourself up to lead in the future of work.

Session Key Takeaways:

  • Discover why outdated leadership models no longer suffice and how embracing our unique human qualities becomes crucial for organisations to thrive amidst technological advancements.
  • Critical shifts Leaders need to make to thrive in the era of AI and other emerging technologies.
  • Enable personal growth and Human centred Leadership skills as you set yourself up to unlock your leadership journey in creating thriving organisations.

  • Are working with a Team you would like to support, inspire and grow
    You would like to know how to manage your time and energy and make change personal
  • You want to unlock a fundamentally new approach to leadership to fully serve you in creating better relationships with family, friends and people at work

As more generative AI tools are developed and layered into existing software packages and technology platforms, we’ve learned that there are several different use cases available—each with unique strengths and characteristics. Generative AI has the potential to change the shape of our workforce, and this type of transformation will require us to think differently about the skills needed for roles we have yet to define.

Generative AI (Gen AI) is a type of AI that can create new content and ideas, including conversations, stories, images, videos, and music. This extraordinary technology enables us to reimagine what’s possible, not only for individuals and businesses, but every aspect of life. Gen AI has the potential to have a tremendous influence on the world as we know it.

This session, led by Melanie McGrory will discuss how we can adapt to these developments and more. The session is perfect if you want to reimagine the future with Generative AI, consider the impact this will have on the way we work, and understand what we need to do to support the generation of people that will follow us.
