Publisher's Summary

The greatest threat we face is not robots replacing us, but our reluctance to reinvent ourselves.

We live in an age of wonder: cars that drive themselves, devices that anticipate our needs, and robots capable of everything from advanced manufacturing to complex surgery. Automation, algorithms, and AI will transform every facet of daily life, but are we prepared for what that means for the future of work, leadership, and creativity? While many already fear that robots will take their jobs, rapid advancements in machine intelligence raise a far more important question: What is the true potential of human intelligence in the 21st century?

Futurist and global nomad Mike Walsh has synthesized years of research and interviews with some of the world's top business leaders, AI pioneers, and data scientists into a set of 10 principles about what it takes to succeed in the algorithmic age. Across disparate cultures, industries, and timescales, Walsh brings to life the history and future of ideas like probabilistic thinking, machine learning, digital ethics, disruptive innovation, and decentralized organizations as a foundation for a radically new approach to making decisions, solving problems, and leading people.

The Algorithmic Leader offers a hopeful and practical guide for leaders of all types, and organizations of all sizes, to survive and thrive in this era of unprecedented change. By applying Walsh's 10 core principles, listeners will be able to design their own journey of personal transformation, harness the power of algorithms, and chart a clear path ahead - for their company, their team, and themselves.

Great summary of the Between Worlds podcast

I thought that Mike did a great job tying together a number of disparate topics from the various podcast discussions in a cohesive whole. As a person who leads a data/technical team in a “business” division of the org, I am living the challenges involved in straddling the 2 worlds so I was able to relate to a lot of the topics in the books.

Unfortunately a bit too simple.

Big fan of his podcast, but found this to be a bit too simple if you already have an "algorithmic" mindset.

What a great eye opening book!

An exhilarating trip into the near future of algorithmic business and what this means for anyone already leading teams, trying to get their company to change or even starting their career. Always nice when the author reads their own book.

Absolutely brilliant

In this book Mike Walsh has managed to distill years of research in clear understanding and insights that cover an exceptionally wide spectrum of algorithmic era challenges. The frameworks, thought experiments and pure clarity of issues and trajectories for the coming years are amazing.

If you work in technology or are at all interested in how AI and algorithms will impact all our lives, make this the first book you read.

Absolutely the best book I have read in the last 2 years.

Thought provoking and practical

I really enjoyed listening to the Algorithmic Leader. Mike presents a thought provoking and practical set of ideas about the future of work and organisations, while linking these future imperatives to present, real-life situations unfolding around us. In this Audible book, the author's voice is clear and compelling.
