With the continuing advances of Artificial Intelligence combined with speech recognition improvements, some of the basic routine things that a coach typically does may soon be replaced with computers. It is possible that Alex or Siri will provide just in time coaching to clients. Clients will want this because they can get coaching when they need it. No need to schedule a session or wait.
Smart coaches will figure out how to partner with these robots to provide a blended service to their clients. People are already getting comfortable talking with digital assistants and in fact they may be more disclosing to a robot than a human.
Those coaches who want to thrive will learn how to leave the easy routine stuff to robots and save the expensive human time for really difficult challenges that humans can better deal with.
