Course overview

GenAI can make you 44% more productive and 20% better.¹ But how?

Your biggest threat isn't AI. People who use AI will replace people who don't. Creatives who use AI will replace those who don't. Teachers who use AI will replace those who don't. Data analysts who use AI will replace those who don't. So, learning how to use AI as a copilot is the most important thing you can do for your career.

What is the Generative AI Growth Mindset workshop?

The Generative AI Growth Mindset workshop by Mark Palmer, former CEO, Time Magazine "Tech Pioneer Who Will Change Your Life" and LinkedIn Top Voice in Data Analytics. You'll learn how to use AI to develop a growth mindset. This workshop is for anyone who wants to create, make and communicate better using AI as a copilot and cocreator. I'll show you how I use AI, including:

1️⃣ A method of using AI for creative work and critical thinking I call "S.E.E.": Seedfinding, Experiment, and Express Yourself

2️⃣ How to use AI to find, hone, and share your "Spiky Point of View" to better influence others

3️⃣ How to get the most out of tools like Perplexity, Midjourney, RunwayML, and even your good old paper journal.

This workshop is for everyone: no technical skills are required!

It's short, sweet, and fun: two live one-hour online Zoom sessions (replays posted to the community), hands-on exercises, and office hours.

"Must-Attend." "Insanely Infectious." "Inspirational"

With a rating of 9.6/10, I get as much from each session as you do. I've had firefighters, teachers, CEOs, and CMOs join—it's an eclectic and fun mix of folks! The only prerequisite is curiosity. Here's what attendees have said:

💠 "Mark's unique take? The GenAI shift isn't happening TO us, it's happening FOR us — or at least it can. That's where the growth mindset comes in.” ~ Anita Stubenruch, author of Apple's Credo

💠 "If you're interested in understanding how to use General AI as a co-pilot in your daily life, or how to integrate it into your creative processes, this class is a must-attend." ~ Kushtrim Kuqi, PhD

💠 "Mark's love and enthusiasm for the subject is insanely infectious. I defy you to NOT immerse yourself in this after spending an hour with Mark and his growth mindset." ~ Steve Wexler, author of the Big Book of Dashboards and The Big Picture

What You'll Learn

Why learning how to use generative AI might be the most important thing you can do

People who use generative AI will replace people who don't. Learn why certain critical thinking tasks are essential to augment with AI "copilots," and how these tools will impact the future of work.

A hands-on approach to decision-finding, decision-making and creativity 🎨

You'll learn to use tools like Bing, Midjourney, and RunwayML to carry you from beginner to expert with minimal or no cost. I'll show you the results from AI prompts that will inspire you to find your own "voice" with AI.

The S.E.E. methodology for GenAI 🤖

S.E.E. stands for Seedfinding, Experiment, and Express Yourself. Inspired by legendary music producer Rick Rubin, it's my simple process to generate, collect, and communicate ideas and insights in a way that influences others.

MIT Research: Experimental Evidence on the Productivity Effects of Generative Artificial Intelligence

New research from MIT confirms what GenAI proponents already know: it boosts productivity and improves the quality of our work. This study challenged 444 college-educated professionals to write press releases, reports, and delicate emails. Half the group used ChatGPT, and the other half didn’t. They were incentivized to receive a top score.

The results reveal good and bad news about the relationship between humans and AI.

Learning is better with cohorts

Learning is better with cohorts

Learn with a cohort of peers

Cohort-style, interactive, small-group learning with hands-on projects to put ideas into action.

Interactive and project-based

You’ll interact with other learners through breakouts and project teams if you want, or, on your own if you prefer.

Built for entelechy

Entelechy, a term you'll learn in the session, is a system that helps turn learning into skills. This ancient idea from Aristotle is so rarely used today, but we'll use it not just during the course, but the system will serve you for life.
