The ONE Reason Why, What Leaders Should Be Looking For, And Why I’m Not Worried About AI Replacing Me

Many people are scared that AI will replace them.

In many cases, people are right.

AI will replace their jobs.

Now, I do not believe you “should” be scared of AI for this reason, but I understand why people have this Fear.

When looking at the capabilities of AI, there is one Industry I KNOW will become dominated by AI.

The Leadership Development Industry.

I know that this $350 Billion+ Industry will become completely dominated by AI for ONE reason.

Leadership Development is an Echo Chamber of Failure.

It has an 80% Failure Rate, with “Limited Success” outside of that.

The $350 Billion+ Industry has not helped Leaders find any Success.

Statistics around Leadership Success and Approval Rates have consistently been crashing for decades.

It isn’t because Leaders don’t want to improve, quite the opposite!

Leaders have increased their spending to do everything in their power to improve.

The problem isn’t Leaders, the problem is the Broken Models that Leaders are using.

Leadership Development continues to talk about the same things, using the same Broken Models, and continues to Fail to get Results.

It “Echoes” the same things over and over again.

This is also why AI will dominate Leadership Development quickly.

AI is amazing at quickly and efficiently Echoing the most consistent things it finds.

AI is significantly better at doing this than Humans.

AI can look up information, write extensive echoed Content, and distribute it in a matter of minutes.

For every Leadership Development Article a Human creates, AI could create anywhere from 10–100 Articles in the same period.
