The Robots Are Coming—For Us? | Araujo on Transformation

1681 0

Each month, “Araujo on Transformation” episodes feature conversations with Charles Araujo, founder of the Institute for Digital Transformation. We all hear a lot (too much?) about Digital Transformation, but Charles is working to ground that platitude in reality. An engaging speaker and best-selling author, Charles is spreading the gospel of business change through an equally human and technological lens. Today, we talk about how the arrival of robots in the workforce could usher in a new era of leadership.

Episode 6

The Big Themes:

  • Taken as directed, you should see a change in your digital transformation in a few weeks – as long as you read the message on the bottle.
  • It seems like a parlor trick, but with a facsimile of “Bob Evans” people can use AI and not have any idea that you’re an algorithm.
  • As a master storyteller and as digital leader you need to be crafting a vision of the future – and you need to get it right.
  • The movie “I Robot” is more prescient than you think. Maybe you should invite the hologram for Happy Hour; they’re great coworkers and not at all judgmental.

The Big Quote: “That’s what I encourage every digital leader to be. They need to be a futurist.”
