The Coming Threat – Artificial Intelligence PART 3

 

This is Part 3 of a three part briefing on the Coming Threat of AI.

 

How You Respond to the Onslaught of Artificial Intelligence Is Crucial

There will always be a need for talented sales professionals to drive customer engagement and win lucrative business. However, if you spend most of your day working on tasks that are amenable to automation, your career in the sales field is vulnerable. If you don’t pay attention to this threat, you could be relegated to lower-paying positions or be forced out of your sales career altogether. 

You might be responding with skepticism, believing there is no way your job will go away. Those were also the words of the highest skilled welders, machinists, and equipment operators in the 1980s and 1990s who were shocked when robots phased them out of their well-paid factory jobs. Do you really want to take a chance and ignore the obvious signs? 

While a Selling Revolution is clearly on its way, the intent here is not to raise alarms but to help you survive as a sales professional and even prosper during this transformation. It is a call to action, sounding the warning cry for two critical reasons. 

First, you need to be aware that changes are coming, and 

Second, you need to sharpen your skill set, embrace the technologies that will increase your productivity, and become empowered to achieve even greater success.

Those who survive will need to have a laser focus on continuously developing and retaining elite selling skills. This includes building and refining great communication skills, developing industry expertise, and adopting many of the lessons you will be introduced to in these flash briefings. 

Master these skills and you will have the opportunity to become an Elite Seller, one who will strengthen customer relationships, win more business, and be well-positioned to achieve your career and financial goals even in the face of some turbulent times ahead.
