Learning to Coach with AI

Updated: 4 days ago

The Future of Coach Training 🌟

In the rapidly evolving workplace, the question of whether Artificial Intelligence (AI) will replace leaders has sparked much debate. Yet, amidst these conversations, I've identified an untapped opportunity: leveraging AI not as a replacement but as a tool for learning, especially to learn the art of coaching.

Enter TobyAI, my digital twin. An innovative AI-driven leadership trainer that helps you roleplay your most daunting coaching conversations.

Imagine this:

Your team member has been underperforming. Their actions lead to a major client issue. The team member disagrees, they are furious that they would be balmed by the client for the failure. Your next 1-1 is tomorrow. How do you prepare?

I would lose sleep ahead of this conversation. I’m a people pleaser so I find these moments challenging. But leadership requires you to lean in.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could practice ahead of time?

That's where TobyAI steps in, transforming sleepless nights into confidence and clarity.

The Role-Play Revolution with ChatGPT

Lead Like a Coach Ai Assisted Tool

Traditional role-play, a long-standing method for practicing difficult conversations, often falls short of expectations, feeling unnatural and unengaging. ChatGPT changes the game by offering a dynamic, interactive platform that simulates real-world scenarios, allowing you to practice and perfect your leadership skills in a risk-free environment. 

I have spent months training ChatGPT to become a world-class coach trainer. During your role-play conversations, TobyAI will observe your interactions and step in with specific feedback when you steer away from a coach-like leadership style.

To begin, the first role-play scenario TobyAI offers is the ability to practice challenging coaching conversations. Helping you tame your advice monster and facilitate a conversation that genuinely helps your team grow. 

In the future, I hope TobyAI will have a catalog of intelligent AI leadership scenarios
