The Silent AI Uprising: Why Leaders Must Act Now
I’m honored to be speaking at GPT Dreamin’ about how organizations can responsibly govern AI. Thanks to Mark Good for organizing this community focused on AI’s potential to empower workers.
However, many companies still reflexively ban tools like ChatGPT. As “shadow GPT” proliferates regardless, rigid prohibitions will backfire: they ignore workers seeking helpful AI and implicitly label innovation as unnecessary risk.
This “just say no” mindset frustrates workers who see AI’s benefits. Over time, strict top-down policies may even trigger talent flight by fueling perceptions that management distrusts staff.
My talk offers a better path: AI governance that weighs ethical concerns but also respects workers and their goals. With care, foresight and inclusion of frontline perspectives, leaders can harness AI tools judiciously, address valid worries, and unlock greater safety, joy and prosperity for both organization and employees. I invite you to join the thoughtful dialogue.
