The Starting Gun Has Fired…

There will be CEOs who are winners and losers. What about you?

The sprint has begun. If you’re not moving, you’re already falling behind.

For CEOs, the time to act is now. Gen AI is on the brink of transforming every industry, every company, and every knowledge worker’s role – including yours, CEO.

Leaders with vision are already on their feet, ensuring their teams and themselves are versed in the essentials of Gen AI.

They recognize the seismic shifts in work, seeing Gen AI not as a threat but as an ally to boost productivity, improve decision-making and elevate the quality of work.

I’m not the only one who sees it this way. Consider these insights:

  • 99% of companies are boosting their Gen AI investments.
  • 97% anticipate Gen AI will transform their business within three to five years.
  • A 20% productivity pickup is expected by automating tasks with Gen AI, says Accenture.
  • According to McKinsey, Gen AI tops the list of CEO priorities in 2024.
  • PwC reports that 84% of leaders believe Gen AI will streamline employee efficiency in 2024.
  • Gartner predicts Gen AI will deliver a 15.7% cost savings and 24.7% boost in team productivity within 12 to 18 months.

The future will herald victors and vanquished. Neglecting Gen AI as a top priority spells defeat. Delaying, failing to properly train, allowing rivals to forge ahead. What’s the price you will pay if you sit on the sidelines?

Last week, I launched a Gen AI series for twenty-five CEOs. Executive AI Bootcamp is a hands-on dive into harnessing Gen AI for productivity, strategy formulation, team enhancement, and leading into the Gen AI era. Despite 80% starting as beginners, they’re on track to becoming Gen AI powerhouses. They recognize the necessity and the immense opportunity to lead through this transformative era.

What will your Gen AI narrative be? Victor or vanquished. Sitting out puts you in peril. What’s your next move?
