🏋️‍♀️ LET’S DO THIS! 🏋️‍♀️


Both in our professional and personal lives, we face two challenges that may seem unrelated at first glance:

  1. The sometimes awkward, even morally uncomfortable act of networking; and

  2. The rapid, often intimidating, advance of Artificial Intelligence (AI).

By linking these two concerns, we can create an actionable strategy to face them head on.

Make Networking a Friend, Not a Foe

A study found that networking leaves some managers feeling "dirty" and morally compromised, particularly when they approach it transactionally, aiming to gain something fast. The discomfort is magnified for junior managers who feel they have less to offer. Overcoming these feelings starts by redefining the goal of networking.

Let's look at networking as a pathway to forge authentic relationships and collaborate meaningfully with our peers.

  • Instead of seeing networking as a one-time transaction, envision it as a long-term investment.

  • Implement the "no asks for a year" rule and focus on what you can offer others, even if it's just your attention, enthusiasm, or support for now.

  • Join fewer groups, but go deeper, aiming for quality connections.

Embrace AI to Boost Inclusivity & Efficiency

Embracing AI isn't just about keeping up with trends—it's about unlocking potentials in diverse, inclusive teams and effective organizations. AI helps curate unbiased datasets, removes human bias from hiring, and optimizes the recruitment process.

AI doesn't just improve processes—it improves people. AI-powered solutions like ChatGPT can assist in education, HR, and even writing. Embracing AI enables us to focus on core tasks and creative pursuits, enhancing productivity and quality of life.
