Embracing The AI-Powered Workplace: Harnessing Data, Play, and Emotional Intelligence

How do you feel when you see the words AI? Anxiety, excitement, dread? Perhaps you hear the Terminator soundtrack? There are so many misconceptions about AI. Is it here to replace our jobs or to help us do better work? Because of this, many teams have chosen to avoid it when AI can be more helpful than hurtful if you embrace this technology.


In this talk, we will delve into the transformative potential of AI, data, and human-centered leadership in shaping the future of work. We will identify how to play with AI as a friend so you can delegate the work you don’t want to do and have time for the flow of work you care about most. We will introduce cutting-edge AI tools for data analysis and visualization and explore AI-powered gamification techniques to boost engagement, creativity, and collaboration, fostering an emotionally intelligent and data-friendly culture. The session will provide a roadmap for leaders to navigate the challenges and opportunities of the AI revolution and build organizations that thrive in constant change by prioritizing data-driven insights, human ingenuity, and play.

Learning Objectives

  1. Demystify AI and break down the misconceptions so it can be your ally rather than your enemy.

  2. Show how it can help you delegate the work you don’t want to do so you can focus on your most vibrant, flow work.

  3. Provide a roadmap for how to roll out specific AI tools for your team and get buy-in from your staff.

How customizable is the content of the workshop to address specific challenges or goals within our organization? Are there opportunities for participants to bring in their own data or workplace scenarios for a more tailored learning experience?

YES! The workshop is fully customizable. After teaching data communications to organizations ranging from Fortune 500 companies to tiny non-profits for years, I have a full set of modules ready to work directly with your group’s data. This is available in the package.

What methods or techniques will you employ during the workshop to ensure high levels of engagement from all participants, especially in a virtual setting? How do you plan to keep the energy levels up and ensure that the concepts are being absorbed and can be practically applied?

In virtual settings, a meeting assistant will be on the Zoom call to monitor the chat function. I monitor each room during breakout sessions to answer individual questions. For introverts and workers who prefer more time, the deluxe package gives workshop participants the option of scheduling individual follow-up sessions.

Beyond the post-event follow-ups mentioned, what additional support or resources are available to ensure the long-term implementation of the strategies discussed during the data storytelling workshop? Do you offer ongoing consulting or access to further learning materials?

Yes! Each organization will receive access to a private, password-protected webpage, with links to the workbook and additional learning materials: PDFs of academic articles, links to helpful websites, and ChatGPT prompts to turbo-charge your data communication skills.
