AI Savvy Equals Career Success

Keeping up with the latest technological advancements is no longer optional—it’s essential.

Generative AI is transforming industries, and it’s time for everyone to hop on board. Whether you’re a seasoned professional or just starting your career, boosting your knowledge and skills in generative AI can open doors you never knew existed. And here’s the kicker: Advanced use of Gen AI isn’t reserved for “techies” and coders, it applies to every professional role, from leadership and sales to recruiting and beyond.


We’re not strangers to change. Today’s market requires quick thinking, innovation, and adaptability. Recently, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development painted a stark picture:

Millions need to reskill as the half-life of their professional skills has now dropped below five years!  


What does that mean?  Well, your current skillset will likely be irrelevant in less than five years. And, if you haven’t improved your skillsets recently, it’ll happen that much faster. Instead of viewing AI as a threat, why not see it as the new shiny tool in your toolkit?


Many training participants are less than enthusiastic about having another technical platform to learn, but once they experience what it is capable of, their “Aha” moment has arrived. The possibilities are endless but you have to know where to start. It’s been reported that just by integrating AI, you could save an average of 2 hours and 15 minutes daily—time you could invest in honing your craft, deepening client relationships, or strategizing your next big move. Sure, AI can create and rewrite emails and answer questions easily, but there is so much more to explore. Tired of watching an entire video to get the highlights? – done. Feeling anxious about an upcoming prospecting call? - Practice with your new sales coach. Need to make sense of complicated data? - You’re covered. AI excels in handling the mundane, crunching data, and uncovering patterns that are invisible to the human eye, allowing you to focus on creating value and driving innovation.


The Perils of Complacency


Solving The Growth Dilemma facing many organizations today requires action. Now is the perfect time to embrace GPTs and AI Assistants.


Remember the tales of Kodak and Blockbuster? They missed their cue to evolve. In the world of staffing, staying idle is a dangerous business. Embracing AI now ensures you stay relevant, competitive, and ready for any challenge.


Starting Your AI Journey


  1. Begin with the basics. Start with simple questions and build from there. Let your GPT know when it hits the mark and when it’s wrong. Think about daily tasks and how it might assist.

  2. Look to the knowledge-sharing experts. From hundreds of YouTube videos to facilitated training, you’ll find a plethora of useful information and tools. See related Butler Street webinar: "ChatGPT for Sales: Improve Prospecting Messaging, Productivity, and Results"

  3. Use it. The more you utilize ChatGPT, the better it gets. Seriously, it learns from human feedback so when you correct it or ask for adjustments, it has a better understanding of what you need.

  4. AI is continuously evolving. Keep your skills fresh and relevant by staying updated with the latest AI advancements. Committing to 10 minutes a day will push your half-life out!

  5. Encourage team learning. Share insights and successes that help elevate the entire team.
