Generative AI Mastermind FAQ
A tsunami of digital change is coming. We're only seeing the rumble of thunder, the full force of the Generative AI wave has not hit yet. The kind of technological and societal disruption that we’re now facing is more than exponential, it's discontinuous. When it hits it will change everything.
The goal of this Mastermind workshop is to help you develop a strategy for not only surviving the AI revolution, but thriving in this new era. This workshop combines key techniques from Agile design sprints – the secret weapon of companies like Google and Apple – into the Mastermind process.
Normally, FutureLab Consulting works exclusively with senior executives at Fortune 500 level companies, but this is a first offering to emerging leaders. So if you're a startup founder or director of a non-profit organization or simply someone who wants to get a leg up and figure out the GenAI revolution fast, this is for you!
The risk is real. A recent report conducted by ResumeBuilder surveyed 750 business leaders entrenched in AI technology. Alarmingly, 44% forecasted layoffs in 2024 due to AI efficiencies. New research from the University of Pennsylvania warns that nearly 300 million jobs in the U.S. and Europe face exposure to AI automation. What's more, about a quarter of these jobs could simply be eliminated entirely by AI. Google has already leaked that they'll be laying off 30,000 employees, taking advantage of AI leverage.
Everyone’s thinking that AI is going to take their job. But this isn’t exactly how it's going to happen. More accurately, what’s going to happen is that people who use AI effectively are going to take jobs from those who don’t have a clue and don't want to adapt. So the goal is to be one of the lucky ones who learn how to ride the wave of AI evolution to success, rather than being one of the less fortunate who will be crushed by this digital tsunami that has arrived. So how can you make sure you’re one of the lucky ones?
The best thing you can do to survive the coming upheaval is to master some AI skills. But brace yourself – acquiring AI skills isn't easy. It's a cognitive challenge of significant magnitude, equivalent to mastering a new language. It is simply not possible to gain AI literacy overnight, or by taking a "seven day intensive," or watching a lot of YouTube videos. It's going to require a few months of serious effort, and the truth is that nobody can do your mental pushups for you. Especially not an AI.
Here's the good news: every entrepreneur has a superpower and AI is like a super-secret serum that activates a dormant superhuman gene deep within you. GenAI has the potential to lift you and your life to new heights. You can use that power to not only feel but to be in control of your destiny, to earn more money, to make a real and meaningful impact on the world, to manifest your best life.
So what exactly is this superpower? It’s the thing that makes us different from any other species on the planet… your creativity. What AI can do is help you strengthen your core creativity to unleash your creative potential. Core creativity is like core strength, and unless we're actively exercising it, it gets a bit flabby. For example, as a test, one member of our team wrote a 25 page marketing ebook in an arena outside of expertise... in only 60 minutes, complete with images. This would normally take days or weeks to do. This process is integrated into our first session, seeing exactly how to leverage the best of breed AI tools to 10x creativity advantage. This program is a launchpad for learning how to leverage these amazing new AI tools to get a better job, to increase your income, to ensure a competitive edge, and to realize your best life! 🚀

So who is leading this Mastermind? – there are a lot of AI training programs springing up, but how many are led by someone who has actually built an AI product? This mastermind is led by Moses Ma, who is managing partner of FutureLab Consulting. He's the designer/developer of BrainstormBot, the world’s first GenAI app that enhances and improves brainstorming for both individuals and teams. He's a serial entrepreneur who has built critically acclaimed, bestselling software products. He is a notable strategic consultant and Fortune 100 executives have said about his work, "the project you’ve created for us has become the most important R&D initiative for our company this year” and “Moses is our secret weapon.” As a scientist, he's been published in Science, the top scientific journal in the world. And he's consistently voted the top speaker at global conferences he's keynoted and taught workshops at. Lori Crever, SVP of Wells Fargo Bank, said, “Moses Ma is off the charts, A-Triple Plus. I was blown away by his ability to lead, create, examine, challenge and push us for dynamic and innovative results.” This is a chance to learn from a true expert and technology guru.
About BrainstormBot – this AI chatbot behaves like a gifted innovation coach and muse for your team, and offers "starter ideas" in an upbeat manner, that will prime the pump of your team's core creativity. Users are saying it's like "brainstorming on steroids" and "freaky good". BrainstormBot is for teams that want to take innovation to the next level. Your participation in this MasterMind will provide you with free access to this leading edge AI tool, that can boost your personal creativity. You can find out more at www.brainstormbot.ai
About Masterminds – Mastermind groups offer a combination of brainstorming, education, peer accountability and support to sharpen your business and personal skills. A Mastermind group helps you and your mastermind group members achieve success. We will be using a modified "eMasterMind" process that uses co-accountability circles to track goals and successes (basically a mix of Agile and OKR). If this becomes a larger Mastermind, we'll use a decentralized process to make sure that everyone gets enough time in the hot seat to drive progress. Here's why this is vital: evolution taught humanity that forming tribes and packs, of roughly 30-70 people, was essential for survival. When AI ice age hits with full fury – you need to find your AI tribe. In the Generative AI Mastermind, you'll connect with both seasoned pros and emerging startup entrepreneurs who have a passion for innovation. Within a Mastermind context, this invaluable network can lead to exciting collaborations, mentorships, and career opportunities.
