Can a Bot Really Improve Your Management Skills?

Today’s WSJ contains a story on Robots that Manage the Managers. The idea is that a bot can improve one’s leadership skills. For example, a management coaching app will remind you that it’s time to have a performance conversation with one of your employees.

Call me old school, but how hard can it be to place a reminder on your calendar for a weekly check-in? Do you really need another thing in your life pinging you when you’re in the restroom?

My Apple watch reminds me when it’s time to stand. I used to listen to my watch and do what I was told. Now it’s like background noise. I suspect the same thing will happen with these management bots. You’ll listen and comply until their reminders are nothing but a distant memory.

What’s your thoughts on a Bot providing you with management advice?
