Beyond the Page Podcast -The Revolution of AI in Coaching ~ There’s nothing artificial about it

The Revolution of AI in Coaching ~ There’s nothing artificial about it

We are excited to share with you the next interview in our “Beyond the Page” series featuring Jonathan Reitz.

Using a chatbot or other artificial intelligence source, a coach offers a client benefits that would not be possible without technology. Large language models – like the core algorithm behind ChatGPT and GPT-4 – offer statistically plausible suggestions or conversational prompts that frame a coaching conversation.

Coaches might use these tools to prepare for a coaching session by developing a list of potential questions or evaluating their word choices afterward. Automating coach-client interaction between sessions may build accountability, and a results focus. Enter the term “coach augmentation.”

Current research shows that chat-based coaching tools are already delivering meaningful client results.

In this podcast, we will discuss how coaches can use AI to augment their coaching and help facilitate more light bulb moments for the client.
