Beyond the Page Podcast -Can Artificial Intelligence Deliver Transformational Coaching?

Can Artificial Intelligence Deliver Transformational Coaching?

We are excited to share with you the next interview in our “Beyond the Page” series featuring Joe Dunn and Julian Humphreys.

With unrivaled expertise and a passion for innovation, Joe and Julian take us on a journey of discovery, sharing their thoughts on the transformative power of technology in coaching. They challenge our assumptions and paint a compelling picture of the opportunities and pitfalls that lie ahead.

Throughout the episode, we explore the significance of being open-minded and embracing new ideas, as Julian’s Spot beautifully demonstrates. We learn from Joe’s experiences, as he reflects on missed opportunities due to skepticism about new technology. They make a powerful case for the importance of breaking free from limited views and exploring the possibilities that new technology offers.

Chat GPT, a cutting-edge tool, also takes center stage in today’s episode. The speaker shares their experiments with this AI-powered chatbot, using it to capture conversations and insights during coaching sessions. We discover how Chat GPT provides valuable summaries and helps improve coaching engagements, sparking new reflections and perspectives.

But no exploration of technology would be complete without acknowledging the ethical implications and concerns surrounding its use. Our guests highlight the need for confidentiality standards, raising important questions about the control and accountability of AI in coaching.

Join us as we journey beyond the pages of coaching expertise, amplifying the conversation on AI in coaching, and gaining valuable insights from Joe Dunn and Julian Humphreys. Together, we’ll navigate the ever-evolving landscape of coaching, discovering how technology is reshaping the profession and opening up limitless possibilities for both coaches and clients.
