In episode 111 of the Leadership Minute, I provide some valuable tips on how to maximize the potential of generative artificial intelligence (GenAI) applications such as ChatGPT.
To take your experience with generative AI to the next level, I suggest asking the AI to pretend it is an expert in a specific area where you need assistance. This typically falls into two categories: coaches and assistants. A coach could be someone who excels in vendor negotiation, cybersecurity, or IT career guidance. On the other hand, assistants can specialize in event planning, social media management, or travel coordination.
Getting started with generative AI is easy because there are publicly available tools that you can use. Some popular options include ChatGPT, Bing Chat, Google Bard, and Claude by Anthropic. When selecting a tool, it’s essential to consider your security requirements.
Once you have chosen a tool, begin your conversations with the AI by assigning it a role. For example, you might say, “You are a technology vendor negotiation expert, and I have a vendor contract expiring soon. I would like to negotiate a better rate if possible…”
By framing your questions this way, you engage the AI in a helpful dialogue and make the process more intuitive and productive. Another important tip is to treat interaction with AI as an iterative process. You may need to refine and iterate the responses to get closer to what you need.
I have found that adopting these techniques greatly enhances my job performance by saving time and sparking creativity. Engaging with generative AI in this manner helps overcome the daunting feeling of starting from scratch.
