You can't automate trust
The race to partner up and integrate with OpenAI's ChatGPT is at a full sprint.
Could AI replace partner pros?
I doubt it. But it could make the job a lot better.
When we automate mundane tasks, it leaves more room for face-to-face interaction. More time to build trust. And more opportunities to increase influence.
Use tools like ChatGPT to your advantage. With the time you save, focus on building something the bots can't, like trust and influence.
