128: Collaborative Intelligence: Unleashing the Power of AI-Assisted Productivity

About This Episode

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. Today, 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.

Wes Gay is a StoryBrand Certified Guide, Agency Owner, and Private Workshop Facilitator. And since 2016, he’s helped hundreds of organizations find clarity with StoryBrand. Jodi Reiter is an accomplished Executive Assistant, bringing a wealth of experience from the marketing, advertising and photography industries as she supports Wes. They sat down with Ryan to share their experiences, strategies and success stories in utilizing AI to collaborate more efficiently and achieve remarkable outcomes. Listeners will learn about the most impactful AI tools on the market and how to weave them into your daily workflow.

  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.
  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.
