Training Industry Magazine Article - Using Artificial Intelligence to Augment Coaching
Managers are busy people. They often have large teams of direct reports to evaluate, observe, answer questions from and report on – not to mention their other job responsibilities.

One-on-one coaching often falls by the wayside, yet it’s a hugely important tool for managers.
Two new training provider partnerships are exploring the possibility of using artificial intelligence (AI) to help. Last month, Mandel Communications announced a partnership with Orai on a free communication coaching app that uses AI to provide instant feedback on speech, including clarity, the use of filler words, pacing and energy. This feedback is based on computational linguistics research and a data set of, according to co-founder Danish Dhamani, “thousands of people with different accents, different languages … speaking across the world.” The app also includes Mandel’s communication skills training and the ability to send recordings to users’ managers and coaches for continued development. The company also offers the ability to create custom content for a company’s specific messaging.
