Life 3.0: Being Human in the Age of Artificial Intelligence by Max Tegmark
Life 3.0: Being Human in the Age of Artificial Intelligence
By Max Tegmark
How will artificial intelligence affect jobs? The author provides insight to the general reader on how AI is increasingly mimicking the human brain and what the repercussions can be to organizations, the workforce and humanity at large depending on how we train, treat and talk about AI. As Elon Musk describes, the book is a “compelling guide to the challenges and choices we need to consider in our quest for understanding and leveraging AI.” This is of particular interest to CLOs and L&D teams because it provides a solid background on AI and arms CLOs with answers on how AI can and will impact learning and development.

Leadership and Self-Deception: Getting Out of the Box
By The Arbinger Institute
Our leaders are highly encouraged to read this book. We have currently put 300-plus leaders though the Outward Mindset with Arbinger workshop and plan to continue to put the rest of our leaders through it in 2019. This book refers to being “in the box,” which is being self-focused, and “out of the box,” which is being people-focused. I’ve used the principles in this book in my professional life and also my personal life, especially in conflict resolution. It is important to focus on the relationship, build trust and not play the blame game if I want true resolution.

Applied Empathy: The New Language of Leadership
By Michael Ventura
We are learning that the skill of empathy is a precursor for leadership, design thinking, change, etc. Michael’s book is the first I’ve seen that practically shows how to classify and build empathy skills in context.

Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress
By Steven Pinker
I read this book because I read “Thinking Fast and Slow” by Daniel Kahneman. That book got me hooked on the power of cognitive biases and got me thinking how using that science could improve learning and development. I’m learning that our exposure to information, particularly negative information, has given us, thankfully, a biased impression of humanity’s future. I’m learning that my children will grow old in a world less beset by hunger, death and disease, which makes me incredibly happy.
