I have written every day for the past 10 years. If you like to read, I've got your back - and I promise to challenge your thinking

Create Your Future

I just got home from a talk on the future, by Peter Diamandis.

Peter has started over 20 companies in the areas of longevity, space, venture capital and education. He’s the founder of the X-Prize Foundation, Singularity University, The Human Longevity Institute, The Zero Gravity Corporation and Interplanetary Resources.

He’s also the author of The New York Times bestsellers Abundance: The Future Is Better Than You Think and BOLD: How to Go Big, Create Wealth, and Impact the World.

This is a man who thinks a great deal about the future.

And he’s extremely positive about it.

One of Peter’s favorite sayings is: The best way to predict the future is to create it…

Which is exactly what I do as a coach.

In a world where most people are living into a default future, I literally help my clients create their future.

What’s NOT going to change?

At the end of Peter’s talk, there was time to ask questions. And instead of asking about the exponential technology that everyone was asking about, I borrowed a question from Jeff Bezos, the CEO of Amazon.

I asked Peter Diamandis, “What’s not going to change in the next 10 years?”

He paused for a moment to really reflect.

And his reply was beautiful, “What’s not going to change is our need for human touch, love, community, connection, a sense of purpose and a need for challenge.”

The future of coaching

I think a lot about the future – and the future of coaching.

There are already several coaching apps on the market. There’s a new form of artificial intelligence being developed for calibrated coaching. And there are deep learning simulators.

There are automatic weight loss coaches. There’s a communication coaching app that uses AI to provide instant feedback on speech, including clarity, the use of filler words, pacing and energy. There’s a sales coaching app that uses speech analytics software to record sales conversations and provide feedback. And there’s an AI coaching app that provides feedback to managers on their leadership skills, offering tips and training to help them improve.

“We are at the dawn of the robot coach,” said Holger Mueller, vice president and principal analyst for Constellation Research, in a recent interview.

Humans trump robots

I have no fear that advanced AI will replace the job of a great coach.

In fact, expert coaches will become irreplaceable role in providing the emotional and mindset support that no AI can do.

Robots can’t help people build passion, curiosity, imagination, critical thinking or grit.And AI can’t help build community, connection, a sense of purpose or the need for challenge…
