Are you ready for the next revolution? Few people are. But the good news is, it’s not too late to prepare. And The Future of Leadership in the Age of AI by Marin Ivezic and Luka Ivezic is proving to be a great training camp for what’s to come.
It is a book that encompasses the past, present and future in order to gain a more complete understanding of a phenomenon. The coming revolution. Or is it already there? While this may sound like a more or less far-fetched futuristic subject, it is not. AI is already part of our world. The reason it can be hard to notice for some is that it is so well integrated into our daily life.
To determine The Future of Leadership in the Age of AI, we must first look to the past. Marin Ivezic and Luka Ivezic will begin by guiding the reader through the first three industrial revolutions, only to lay the groundwork for the fourth, as it will most likely have an exponentially greater impact than any of its predecessors. However, each of us can take action to ease this (inevitable) transition and ensure that we don’t get carried away.
If you want to defend your position in the coming Fourth Industrial Revolution, you must be prepared to adapt. The authors predict a major shift in the workforce to the humanities field and a heavy reliance on interpersonal skills. What will be most appreciated in human workers will be what is distinctly human (so far), traits like creativity and cooperation. In addition, the disruption of the workforce will not only affect entry-level jobs, but will also climb to management levels. Some management positions will become obsolete as their department disappears. The key to surviving and thriving is to prepare in advance for what’s to come, and this read has some great tips to offer.
Unlike the title, the book is not exclusively about leaders and leadership; although it takes up considerable pages, the authors opt for a more holistic approach to the business world. As someone with experience working in the human resources department, I have to admit that this section particularly appealed to me. The authors give practical advice on how to facilitate the future in the present. They offer many examples of different strategies (used for recruitment, retention and other processes) by different organizations and analyze them critically.
If we raise the mirror to the organizational level, two main approaches can be taken. Some companies rely on AI to cut jobs, which increases their profits while reducing costs. But the same technology can also be used for profit by increasing the skills of workers and creating new job opportunities.
The Future of Leadership in the Age of AI by Marin Ivezic and Luka Ivezic is well documented. It relies heavily on reports, studies, and construction and deconstruction arguments based on academic literature. Beyond the general picture painted in the pages of the book, there are some spicy details that may seem trivial at first glance, but which have potentially drastic implications like a deceitful AI they refer to.
But what makes the reading truly valuable is the rich personal insight of the authors’ expertise in the field and their personal experience. Marin Ivezic specializes in emerging technology risk and cybersecurity with a portfolio that includes working with a famous organization to tackle cutting edge technology issues. Luka Ivezic acts as an independent consultant with extensive multicultural experience in the world of emerging technologies.
Overall, the future is already now. It is up to us to decide how we implement it. But if you are not so ambitious to participate in this great adventure, you will still find plenty of interesting facts in the pages of The Future of Leadership in the Age of AI.
