AI is here to stay, but don’t worry so are you!

GLO AI is here to stay, but don’t worry so are you!

Five ways to use AI to improve your and your team’s communication and productivity. 

Are you confused about Artificial Intelligence (AI) and what it means for the future of work? You're not alone. There's a lot of misinformation and fear surrounding this topic. But did you know that you've already been using AI in your everyday work? That's right, every time you use the paper clip icon on Windows or formulas on Excel, you're interacting with a form of AI. 

Today's AI, known as "Generative AI" or Gen AI for short, is what people are referring to when they talk about popular programs like ChatGPT, Midjourney or Firefly. These programs generate new content by pulling information from previously created articles, art and other data. This process is triggered by humans, whether it's through a written prompt or a question. 

While there are still many unknowns surrounding policy, privacy and the future possibilities of machine learning, we can focus on what we can do today with the tools and knowledge that we have at our disposal. Instead of worrying about the Matrix theories of doom and gloom, let's make the best of both Gen AI and the existing skills that you and your teammates possess. 

When it comes to our day-to-day jobs, and our teams’ productivity, how can the use of AI assist in improving efficiencies? 

  1. Executing mundane tasks – Executing mundane tasks can leave your team feeling drained and unfulfilled, wondering why they are not using their talents for projects that create a bigger impact. Some tasks such as cleaning up email lists and data sorting can be time-consuming and boring. But what if I told you that AI can do these tasks in a fraction of the time, without complaining or feeling deflated? By delegating these mundane tasks to AI, your team can be more proactive, more creative and more solutions-driven. Let's empower our teams to focus on what they do best and leave the boring stuff to AI. 

  2. Creating connections – AI can translate from multiple languages in real time. This technology has the potential to revolutionize team productivity. The ability to reduce misunderstandings, increase team alignment and create opportunities for collaboration between team members who may have not been able to communicate effectively before is invaluable. With AI translation, language barriers can be broken, allowing team members who are not native speakers to feel more confident in sharing their ideas and contributing to the team's success. Imagine the possibilities for process improvement and innovation when everyone can communicate effectively. What is possible when we unlock the biggest potential of our diverse teams?  

  3. Summarizing meetings and taking notes – Tired of being in meetings where you can't fully contribute because you're too busy taking notes? You're not alone. The possibility of missing important points can be frustrating and often leaves us feeling unproductive. Imagine if we could all be present and truly focus on the issues being discussed instead of worrying about writing everything down. We could reach a whole new level of productivity. 

  4. Staying on top of projects deadlines and deliverables – AI can revolutionize the way we work and manage our time. With its ability to manage tasks, workflows, schedules and even offer recommendations, alerts and reminders, AI provides your team with the tools they need to organize their days and tasks. This translates into increased productivity and efficiency, giving your team more time to focus on the important things that only humans can do. Embracing AI can help your team work smarter, not harder. 

  5. Igniting the imagination of your creative team – Writer’s and designer’s blocks are real things, the constant need to generate ideas in the creative fields, takes effort and a lot of time. Sometimes ideas flow effortlessly, while other times, there's a creative drought. But what do you do when your team is out of ideas and clients can't wait for inspiration to strike? Enter AI a muse for both those giving direction and those delivering on a project. With the ability to create ideas from simple word commands, AI can serve as a starting point for your team to build upon and draw inspiration from. Embracing the power of AI can take your projects to the next level. 

It is important to keep in mind that humans have a set of key responsibilities when it comes to working with AI, as an article in the Harvard business Review explains; it is our job to train AI to deliver what we are looking for, to explain the outcomes of those tasks and report on results, and lastly to sustain AI by preventing issues from arising in relation to safety, privacy and policies in order to protect employees and the workplace. These responsibilies serve as a constant reminder that AI may be here to stay, but so are you and your teammates.  

The team at The GLO Group is fortunate to be able to witness the power that effective communication can have on a team through our GLOffect Method™ workshops. We’ve learned that there is a direct connection between clear communication and employee morale and retention and client satisfaction. When we think of what Gen AI can do to help improve this communication, eliminate redundancies, create more engagement and improve creativity; we can’t help but be optimistic about the future outlook of using AI as a supporting tool.
