Unlearning & AI -How does AI redefine the future of Leadership and Management for upskilling/update?
This question was raised in a forum for researchers, but it is undoubtedly compelling for AI & Business. In origin, the question on the forum was referring to education. Answers went around the benefits of ai,
· Data-Driven Decision Making,
· Personalised Learning Experiences,
· Lifelong Learning and Professional Development.
· Problem-Solving and Optimisation.
Using AI for training activities for people’s development fully involves the elements above, especially when discussing different learning types.
Among all the potentialities of AI in educational management activities in the forum, only one person has cited the most important but relevant missed element: Unlearn.
We blame leaders and managers for being stuck with old management models and leadership based on hierarchical structures. Then academia and business literature speak or, sorry, refresh (finally) the popular double-loop learning.
What is missing?
Considering that people can benefit from AI as educational support and customised training for each individual, evaluating learning aptitude and the capacity of learners, tracking learning progress and measuring effectiveness, as well as helping learners identify errors and suggesting corrections.
A further step ahead should consider incorporating unlearning into the AI training models:
· The elements of change at an individual level (no coaching)
· The behavioural elements related to facilitating organisational culture. shifts
· Englobing methods applicable to unlearning, such as role play, simulation, negative capabilities
· Double loop learning with specific case studies, either real or created appositely and customisable.
In TRANSFORAGE TCA Ltd, we have already designed and built a model with three main use cases for AI! Executives, Managers and Employees
They fit the leading training programs for companies which use/will use AI for resource development, but the overarching model can scale up with other topics.
Where all of this comes from?
My personal experience
When I moved from Italy to the UK in 2012, I realised my self-confidence was low because I had to learn business etiquette, methodologies, communication styles, people management and engagement. And due to these things, I started suffering from “the impostor syndrome” because of the lack of knowledge and behaviours required by a new country’s working environment and national and business culture.
I then realised that I had to Unlearn my way of thinking, working, and communications style (no gestures in Italian style 😊 included )
I remember I spoke about the unlearning process a time ago, here:

“Practitioner meets academia and returns.”
One of my characteristics is to take care of my clients, looking for the most updated research. These words from David Wilkinson -the Oxford Review perfectly describe my attitude and need to research everything that can be used in practice and already experimented with. (Thanks again for acknowledging this, David Wilkinson
This is why one of my peers called me. “Practitioner meets academia and returns.”

AI for business-continuity: progressive research and skills upgrading.
My interests and curiosity about how AI can work for/in Business continuity have brought to my attention several training programs, coaching with using AI to change culture and behaviours, and management approaches for every type of transformation.
