In today's fast-paced and interconnected world, harnessing the power of technology and artificial intelligence has become essential for businesses and professionals aiming to thrive in their respective fields.
In this webinar, we have the privilege of hearing from a remarkable duo who have embraced the potential of AI to enhance their productivity and streamline their work processes.

Here, they share their experiences, strategies and success stories in utilizing AI to collaborate more efficiently and achieve remarkable outcomes.
Here are some takeaways they shared on uncovering the strategies, tools and insights that drive their collaborative intelligence and maximize their productivity.
1. Take a high-level approach by starting with context and guardrails around what you know about AI and what you want from it.
The challenge when it comes to AI, or anything relatively new, is identifying what is actually useful versus what is a shiny object.
Some business owners who don't often find themselves at the cutting edge of technology are looking at AI with a bit of trepidation. Maybe you’ve read the headlines and you think it’s all hype.
But when you zoom out, you can see that it can simply be another tool you could use in and for your business.
The best tools are ones that actually solve a real problem.
2. Input equals output when knowing how to work with an AI platform.
Unlike delegating a task to a human, the downside of delegating it to a bot is that there is zero context.
You have to be really clear and specific in your prompt. Are you delegating what you need? Here is an example of how Wes has crafted a prompt.
Acting as a sales rep for BELAY Solutions, rewrite this case study in 100 words. Make it fun and professional. The CTA is to read the full story.
Here are some of the AI resources Wes and Jodi have used successfully.
3. Only use the platforms that are useful to you.
If you’re worried about keeping up — or suffering from a major case of new technology FOMO — you could be counteractively wasting time. Focus on what is actually going to help you be productive.
AI tools are only useful if you find a real use for them. Otherwise they’re just toys that you’re spending your time playing with rather than doing your work.
AI platforms can help free up time and aid in your daily workflow — so that you can spend your added time to add value, drive revenue and market products and services.
With AI, you can research audience types and create spreadsheets and content. But it’s important to keep in mind that what comes back from AI isn’t always going to be perfect.
Humans are still going to need to refine and perfect in order to make sure everything makes sense and is catered to you and your brand.
Bots are a great resource that can be delegated to in order to help us in our jobs. AI is designed to help you, not take over for you. And as we’ve learned, even your VA can use an AI tool to help them complete the nitty gritty work by juggling less and accomplishing more.
The sky’s the limit for this collaborative intelligence to unlock new levels of productivity and success in our own endeavors.
