Unleashing the Power of AI to Boost Productivity for Managers

As a manager, keeping up with technological advancements is essential in today's digital era. With the increased accessibility of artificial intelligence, manager’s should be taking advantage of the wide variety of AI productivity tools. AI's ability to simplify and automate tasks means managers can focus their energy to get more done faster and easier than ever before. Now let’s explore four AI tools that managers can leverage in their daily operations.


AI for Task Generation


When it comes to project management, transforming a large task into smaller, manageable parts can streamline the work ahead. AI-powered task generators such as Magic To-Do by Goblin.tools and Any.do take the guesswork out of project planning. They break down a larger task into actionable steps, giving you a draft work plan in just seconds. 


In addition to speeding the planning process, this is also a game-changer solution for procrastination. When we are feeling stuck, overwhelmed by the size of a project or unsure of where to start, a task generator can provide clarity and direction. 


AI for Content Creation


I am often intimidated by a blank sheet of paper. If the prospect of writing from scratch feels daunting, an AI-powered writing tool might be your saving grace. Jasper.ai, Copy.ai, Writer, and TypeAI are examples of tools that utilize AI technology to streamline content creation. They craft tailored content for a variety of needs, from blog posts to emails to LinkedIn posts and more. These tools act as personalized writing assistants and help express your unique voice. By offering a starting draft to build upon, they save notable time and effort in the creative process.


AI for Meeting Notes


Meeting notes, despite being a useful documentation of a conversation, rarely seem to be a habit of most teams. AI-powered note-taking tools like Zoom’s AI Companion, Fathom, Otter, Parrot.AI, and others, efficiently capture meeting conversations, making them actionable with minimal additional effort. They offer a wide range of features like real-time transcription, translation, action item identification, video chaptering based on topics and more. 


One of the greatest benefits of these tools is their ability to give non-meeting attendees access to the meeting information. By providing access to the actual meeting recording in an easily navigable format, non-attendees can get the full context to the original conversation instead of someone’s best version of a recap. This not only enhances their understanding, but it also reinforces that they can skip unnecessary meetings and use that time for more important work without worrying that they’ll be out of the loop. 


AI: A Tool, Not a Replacement


While AI brings an array of benefits, it's imperative to remember that it doesn't substitute for your own critical thinking. View AI as a tool that generates an initial draft, and always be deliberate about what you input and what you approve as outputs. Also, be cognizant of privacy and security concerns. Choose tools that are trustworthy and approved by your organization.


AI tools hold the potential to enhance productivity and elevate the proficiency of managers and our teams. While it may seem daunting, staying current with AI advancements and integrating appropriate tools into your team's arsenal could prove to be a game-changer in your management journey.
