How P.A.P.E.R. can help you with AI

How do you train the human to train the AI?

That's been on my mind a lot as I've spent countless hours experimenting with and researching about ChatGPT.

I came up with an acronym I've found helpful (which I had to do myself as I've found it isn't very good at acronyms!)


(Old tech to help with new tech 😂)

So before you start a new request, make a note of these things:

P = Persona

A = Audience

P = Purpose

E = End product

R = Review and Refine

P = Persona

What 'voice' should it use?

The default is formal and dry, so add personality, tone, particular words.

Pro tip: Have your persona handy to cut and paste each time you start a new conversation.

A = Audience

First rule of good communication: Know your audience. Consider who will be reading and the appropriate style.

Pro tip: If in doubt, ask it to write for a year 7 or below - keep it simple!

P = Purpose

What is it for? Are you writing to Persuade? Reassure? Explain?

Pro tip: Be really specific about what you want and don't be afraid to play and refine.

E = End product

You can adapt it for the end product e.g. add formatting (heading / bold) use a 'hook' headline or give you hashtags for social media.

Pro tip: Give it 'top writing tips' from elsewhere e.g. "use power words and rhetorical questions."

R = Refine and Review

Read it carefully. ChatGPT is great but use critical thinking skills and your own judgement to check details before you hit send or publish.

Pro tip: Practice makes progress ;)

I've added a few hints and tips along the way, and I've got so much more to share in my first workshop with a professional services firm this week.

From tricky emails to reports, to meeting summaries to proposals and so much more, chatGPT has changed to way we work and communicate forever.
