Curious Studying Lesson…Utilizing All of the Instruments We now have Within the Toolbox…

We frequently speak about adaptability and staying related via curious studying.

Here’s a current, actual instance about utilizing instruments at hand to the most effective of your benefit, on this case AI and ChatGPT capabilities.

I’ve been working with a senior government on some enterprise information framing and positioning for a giant announcement. The manager has at her disposal very senior communications executives that their possession group duties with quite a few initiatives, all of that are “Precedence One.” The agency got here again with a draft of stories that was a bit mis-messaged, most likely as a result of it was not the main target or the highest information merchandise of the day for them, but it surely was to this rising government.

I ought to add that this particular person may be very sensible and a terrific strategic thinker and doer, who at all times has the large image in thoughts and is vastly conscious of all occurring in a fast-paced trade. The individuals thought, like mine, was “Hey why don’t we throw some ideas into an AI platform simply to see what it returns for a thought starter on messaging. It would discover among the historical past of the group and (of this particular person) and in seconds it might give us a unique perspective.”

The company lead was a bit ruffled by that thought, perhaps as a result of they not often get pushback from individuals, or perhaps as a result of they weren’t utilizing all of the instruments within the workbench.

Low and behold, we tried Chat GPT for some ideas, and it created a minimum of a dozen otherwise framed one-line messages that had nice worth. Now among the information have been off base and among the messaging was mistaken, however there was a unique viewpoint that was put ahead…and all of it took place as a result of the chief of the group was extra open minded and curious than these down the chain of command.

It goes to indicate that AI, or any platform, can be utilized to raised craft a message, similar to a Thesaurus, or a Calculator, or a printing press or Google or some other instrument has been used after they got here into play. Perhaps an company sees it as a risk, perhaps they’re too centered on simply doing and never studying, however on the finish of the day the usage of the instruments wasn’t questioning somebody’s means to do a job, it was questioning why wouldn’t you utilize all at hand.

In actuality, the manager advised me, it was eye opening to see how a really seasoned group being tasked with management in storytelling was not leaning into every thing that may very well be used to make a superb announcement nice by perhaps being a bit of too closed minded on all we’ve got in entrance of us.

Nice lesson realized. Hold your eyes open and use every thing at hand to make the pie greater.  (BTW I ran this submit via spelling and grammar verify, and sure, I made errors! How nice is it that they have been caught by an automation instrument!)
