Ever found yourself dazed by Siri’s misdirections 🔄 or confused by the dark side of Alexa and thought, “Trust these AI bots as an real assistant? Not to mention as a coach. No way!” Well, you better buckle up? 🎯 And get prepared – that’s the future we’re steering toward.

I recently had the privilege of exploring this not-so-distant future in a workshop entitled “Human/AI Curated Coaching and Mentoring.” 🧠💡 The atmosphere, enriched by the visionary thinker, educator and futurist Jazz Rasrool, was a fertile landscape 🌱 for transformative insights. Jazz’s engagement with us, soliciting our thoughts and feedback, truly exemplified his commitment to collaboration, helping coaches to learn and become enabled to make better decisions on using AI in coaching.

Some scattered nuggets from the rich content: Rasool’s Emerging Paradigm Model (EPM), the AICA Roadmap, with its guiding principles of Enhance, Enrich, Empower, and Generate Insights, comprise one part of the foundational building blocks for the potential of AI in coaching to unfold. Emotional intelligence, a key takeaway, emerged as the cornerstone of utilizing AI in this coaching context, exemplified by our hands-on experience with, a Conversational Agent whose empathy and human interaction capabilities were eye-opening.😍

Despite my enthusiasm, I approach this new territory with a critical mind and caution 🕵️‍♀️, mindful of the complexities surrounding AI, especially considering the EU’s data and privacy regulations and the new AI law. However, the prospect of enriching my coachees’ experiences through AI, enhancing the connection between coach, coachee, and AI, is intriguing and an option I am eager to explore more. 🔍🌟

Looking ahead, I am excited to develop my approach with new AI tools and models, enhancing the professional coaching experience in ways we’ve only begun to imagine.
