Free Up Time to be a Leader

As leaders, there is no denying that most of us find ourselves with an overwhelming amount of tasks to juggle. With countless meetings, emails, and deadlines to manage, it is challenging to find the time to focus on what’s most important – spending more time with our people and being a leader!

Unfortunately, this overload can and probably for most of us has lead to some burnout and a lack of productivity, and of course, we end up making everything else a priority over our leadership role!

However, with the advent of new AI technologies, there are now smarter and more efficient ways to manage one’s time. Take ChatGPT AI for instance, this is one such technology that can help us make time to be leaders.

AI cannot replace the emotional intelligence and social skills that are necessary for effective leadership

As a leader, it is important to recognise that while AI can analyse data and provide insights, it cannot replace the emotional intelligence and social skills that are necessary for effective leadership. Human leaders have the ability to connect with their team members, motivate them, and inspire them to work towards a shared goal.

What is the role of AI in leadership?

The role of AI in leadership is to help leaders free up time to be leaders. Essentially we become more efficient, productive, and focused on our core responsibilities. Clearly, there are tons of applications for AI that we can dive into in future content.

Additionally, these tools can help us improve communication among our team members, reducing misunderstandings and ensuring everyone is on the same page. Overall, the role of AI in leadership is to augment and support human decision-making, allowing us leaders to make the most of our time.

An example of AI in action

With AI technologies like ChatGPT, we can do more with less time. ChatGPT is basically the name of a super smart language model created by OpenAI. Think of it as a virtual buddy who can answer almost any question you throw at it. It is like a mix of Google and your favourite encyclopedia, but with a sense of humour (and a lot fewer pages to flip through). If you don’t believe me then try it out for yourself

How can the ChatGPT AI help us make time to be a leader?

ChatGpt can help you manage emails, scheduling appointments, and conducting research, freeing us up more time to focus on building relationships.

Free up time to focus on building relationships

Here are some of the ways:

  • Delegate Tasks: With the ChatGPT AI, we can delegate certain tasks to the AI, freeing up more time to focus on other important aspects of their work. For instance, AI can help us schedule appointments and even conduct research for specific projects.
  • Improve Communication: The ChatGPT AI can also help improve communication among team members. By acting as a mediator between different team members, the AI can help ensure that everyone is on the same page, and important information is not lost in translation.
  • Enhance Decision Making: ChatGPT AI can provide valuable insights and recommendations that can help us make more informed decisions. By analysing data from various sources, the AI can identify patterns and trends that may not be immediately apparent to us.
  • Boost Efficiency: Finally, ChatGPT AI can help leaders become more efficient in their work. By helping us write emails, automate repetitive tasks and streamline workflows, AI can help reduce the amount of time and effort required to complete certain tasks.

What to do with the time you've freed up?

For sure, personally, I would focus on building more trusting relationships!

Hold regular one-on-one meetings with employees or colleagues to discuss progress, challenges, and any concerns they may have in both work and in their personal lives. Listen to people, that’s why we have two ears and one mouth!

Another investment with my time would be in doing some good old team-building activities or social events to promote a positive and supportive work culture. This could include things like team lunches, after-work drinks, or even team-building exercises like escape rooms or sports events.

Take time to demonstrate appreciation

Finally, take time to demonstrate appreciation! This could be as simple as a public shout-out in a team meeting or a small token of appreciation like a thank-you note or gift card.

In summary, AI is a tool that can help leaders free up more time whilst being more productive, efficient, and fulfilled in our personal and professional lives. It’s time to embrace this new technology and take advantage of its many benefits but always keep in the back of your mind that AI cannot replace the emotional intelligence and social skills that are necessary for effective leadership you have to get out there and be a leader.
