Mike Walsh’s New Book: The Algorithmic Leader

Thursday, Jan 10, 2019

Artificial Intelligence Speaker, Mike Walsh

Artificial Intelligence is the hot topic these days, but when you look past the hype, what does it mean for the way we work—now, and in the future? How does this new age of AI, algorithms, and automation define what it takes to be a great leader?

Futurist and keynote speaker Mike Walsh has spent the past few years traveling the world researching the problem, and realized something shockingly simple: We are leaving the digital age and entering an algorithmic age. Accordingly, we need an entirely new playbook for how leaders make decisions, design innovative products, manage their teams, and help their organizations reinvent themselves.

You might not think that AI and leadership are inherently related. Doesn’t the rise of AI mean fewer jobs, and in short fewer managers? But there is growing evidence that the AI revolution is going to profoundly change jobs, not take them away. New jobs will exist that never existed in the past. Old jobs will be automated or transformed beyond recognition. Teams and leaders will still exist, but they will need to embrace smart ways for working in an algorithmic age. Everything will need to change, including you.

As a result, Mike has written the required playbook. It’s called The Algorithmic Leader: How to be smart when machines are smarter than you, and it will be available in early March 2019.

In his travels, Mike came across a small but emerging group of leaders who were successfully applying the lessons of the algorithmic age and pushing the boundaries of AI in their organizations. He’s collected their stories, and distilled them into a set of ten principles to guide leaders of all types, and organizations of all sizes, to survive and thrive in this era of unprecedented change.

Here’s what Brian Halligan, founder and CEO of Hubspot, had to say:

“Great companies are built on culture. Mike Walsh’s prescient vision of the algorithmic company of the future is no robot army of soulless analytics dashboards, but a living, breathing organism—a community of humans who respond to motivation beyond compensation; purpose and impact; decision-making and autonomy; location and collaboration. A worthy read.”
