AI with heart: Samantha McLean on blending AI with AQ and EQ, finding opportunities in the challenges and taking high performance to the next level

In a changing landscape where adaptability is key, Samantha McLean shines as a guiding light, masterfully blending AI with human insight to turn challenges into a springboard for breakthroughs for those who can successfully blend the two.

The fusion of AI, emotional intelligence and adaptability can redefine the boundaries of high performance, including turning around the results of under-performers.

That’s the view of Elite Agent Managing Editor Samantha McLean, this week’s guest in a special edition of the Elevate podcast, with guest host Andy Reid.

In an episode where the tables are turned, and Sam has to answer the questions instead of asking them, she leads you through a masterclass on how incorporating AI in your business can help you gain advantages that you may have only dreamt of in the past.

Sam reveals how she went against industry norms throughout her career and takes a deep dive into how to pursue your ambitions even when the path isn’t fully visible.

She also delves into the transformative power of setbacks, her process for working through them and how to blend resilience with sharp acumen to uncover hidden opportunities in the unlikeliest of places.

Sam also gets practical and takes a deep dive into using AI, not just as a tool but as a canvas to create unique content to amplify your personal and agency brand and transform the time you save into golden opportunities to deepen client relationships and grow your business.

“It’s about what you do with the time you save. You have to spend it wisely. Save your time writing your letters and your emails and your digital communication, but then go and block out another hour to connect with more people face-to-face.” – Samantha McLean
