AC Coaching Conversations: Can a bot replace a human leadership coach?  

“AI coaching lacks the emotional intelligence, problem-solving skills and personableness that human leadership coaches provide.”

We are delighted to bring to life another article featured in our quarterly Coaching Perspectives magazine, this time focusing on Coaching for All.

Join our next AC Coaching Conversation on Tuesday, 17 October, where James Bridgeman will interview Richard Kelly live on LinkedIn.

Responsive chatbots have been around for over a decade as virtual assistants and learning navigators. With the launch of ChatGPT and a growing number of commercial AI-enabled coaching systems, Richard Kelly reflects on the future of leadership development coaching.

Our AC Coaching Conversations bring you authors featured in the latest issue of Coaching Perspectives. The July 2023 edition focuses on Coaching for All.

Bring your questions for Richard to LinkedIn Live on Tuesday, 17 October.


Please read the article “Can a bot replace a human leadership coach?” by Richard Kelly ahead of the LinkedIn Live event in the latest edition of the Coaching Perspectives magazine (Issue 38, July 2023). We will share the PDF article in the booking confirmation.
