Designed with strong technical expertise and high intelligence, it’s not so far-fetched that the robots of the future could outperform human managers.
The good news for those hoping to automate leadership is that its scientific study is well-established. Indeed, 100 years of academic research have enabled us to identify the key ingredients of leadership, so it is now possible to predict with a relatively high degree of accuracy whether someone will become a leader and how effectively they will lead if they get there. And once we are able to decode a phenomenon to break it down into its core components, then it is feasible to automate it.
In this blog, Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, Chief Talent Scientist at ManpowerGroup, writes about how different components of leadership could be automated within the next few decades, allowing robot leaders to start entering the working environment and beginning to outperform bad (or even average) human leaders.
