A.I. and the Future of Coaching (Danny Iny)

  • Episode #86

Artificial intelligence has put the world of coaching on a precipice of revolutionary change. In the coming years, coaches will be faced with myriad challenges and choices. Danny Iny gives us a map for navigating this transformation successfully.

Danny Iny is the founder and CEO of Mirasee and the executive producer of Mirasee FM.

In this episode, we discuss:
The bell curve and diffusion of innovations
The shift toward outcomes
What is a hybrid approach? What does it mean?
The ripple effect of the pandemic on the coaching industry
The future of virtual coaching
The disruptions happening in the coaching industry, and how coaches can position themselves to be at the forefront of these changes
And more

“A lot of the trends that we’re talking about, they’re kind of coming together to make it so that it’s going to be very hard to make a living… as an average coach. I mean, we’re not that far off from A.I. just doing that job for you.”
