Pre Session Learning

Please take time to read/watch these materials before our session starts.

This is an interview from the smart Adam Grant with two AI experts. It is from March 2023 which means it is feeling dated in terms of the tech. It is very informative about the roles that AI can/will play in our future and how the lines between AI and us will blur quickly. (a conversational AI in the voice of Ellyn Winters-Robinson a breast cancer survivor) is the future of interactive AI chats. If you have anyone in your world going through breast cancer this is a powerful tool to share with them. It also models what authentic and values-driven AI interactions can look like.

This story has some interesting background and insights on the PodCast AI For Humans.

Wired Magazine is awesome for many reasons including its great coverage of AI. Their October 2023 edition was dedicated to AI and has a deep-dive interview with Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI.

Four Simple Words Training

As our organizations navigate the seismic shifts that have come from the pandemic, it is clear that ‘soft skills’ (how we work and collaborate with others) are no longer nice to have. As this Forbes article reminds us, they are in fact, critical to organizational survival. To deal with the scale and scope of change our teams are dealing with we need to embrace and celebrate growth mindsets. Our ‘learn and return’ approach to training supports behavioural change and culture shifts.

We have designed dozens of courses for adult learners and run thousands of training sessions. This course is just one of the many Four Simple Words offers for in-person or virtual training. 

Our training programs are ideal for teams of 8 – 15 and usually run 3 hours long. Most programs include a workbook we send ahead of time and encourage participants to make notes with. If meeting virtually, we include a free 10-minute Zoom prep before each session to ensure everyone is comfortable with the training technology. We promise the same fun and engaging learning experience we offer in person, all from the comfort of your virtual offices. #BringYourOwnCoffee
