Use AI as a Manager to Build Your Case

April 9, 2024

One of the many benefits of Truvelop is the messaging our Customer Success team sends to leaders and managers each month. Through Truvelop Tips, we share best practices, proactive recommendations, and quicks tips with end users on various topics. Here is an excerpt from the most recent Truvelop Tip: Use AI to Build Your Case.

As we kick-off Q2, we wanted to talk about the waves that AI is making in the performance development space. AI, when applied correctly, can help managers to have more strategic check-ins, set better goals, and better advocate for their teams. However, there is a fine line of using AI to become better equipped with data and information and using AI to replace meaningful conversations.  

AI can be a great co-pilot when organizing your thoughts before a check-in. It can help you to better understand the data that you have and identify any themes or patterns that you’ve collected (this of course assumes that you’ve been regularly documenting your observations and sharing real-time feedback). It can help you to outline your next development discussion, or create a meaningful goal based on a team member’s KPIs. With Truvelop, you can use your AI-generated Evaluation insights to have a more strategic and meaningful development discussion.

Ready to start exploring the benefits? Keep these best practices in mind:

  • AI shouldn’t replace real, human interactions. You aren’t ever saying a summary or output word for word but using it to open a conversation around what’s going well and what’s worth improving.
  • Practice how you’re giving instructions to a generative AI. If you’re looking for guidance from a generative AI tool, be specific and ask for additional outputs as needed until you get to where you’re hoping to go.
  • The more data you have, the more accurate picture you’ll have. AI can only itentify so many trends and patterns when there is limited data. Be sure to document as much performance as you can, so that you can better understand what’s going well and what’s worth improving going forward.

If you’re hesitant to begin exploring AI, that’s okay! It’s developing at an incredibly rapid pace that may feel overwhelming. With that said, the Truvelop team is here to support you. That’s why we’ve recently started offering 1:1 Coaching. Our 1:1 Coaching sessions are currently free and could be a great way to receive personalized guidance and develop your skills as a leader.
