I was at a lunch recently where the two tables around us were talking about AI and ChatGPT.  I wasn’t eavesdropping, it just seems that I keep hearing people talk about this everywhere I go in person and online. I then realized it was time to accelerate my learning!

As a leader of Talent for my firm, I knew from my research that AI was transforming how we were working: from ChatGPT assisting in the talent acquisition process and jumpstarting compliance training assessments to AI enabled voiceover to enable us to update elearning at a faster pace.

My first night with ChatGPT was like watching my teenager scrolling through Instagram.  I was hooked, writing prompts, and evaluating the output.  My brain swirled with the possibilities of this tool, not only for my role as a Talent Leader but also as in my role as a mom.  The last prompt late that night was to chart out a plan for our summer college visit trip.  While the driving times weren’t all correct, I do have a sketched-out plan that will save hours and serve as a starting point for our family planning session.

The possibilities with ChatGPT and AI seem endless, however, I know I have a lot to learn to harness this power.  As a learning leader for many years, I realize that I need a learning journey for my team and me.  Jumping into a solution without understanding the objective can actually be a loss of productivity and scrap learning.

So, this is the beginning of my journey to learn how AI and the tools around it can enable me, my team, and my organization to add value and be more productive.

Stay tuned for more of my journey!
