If there was ever a time to learn about transitions, it’s now. Although this is an unprecedented time for financial advisors as well as their clients, this shared experience we are all having is a transition not that unlike those you deal with daily in your practice. It might be orders of magnitude more complex or difficult, but it’s still a transition. And because major life events don’t take a break during pandemics, you might be called on to help clients through both at this time.
In times of transition, we often struggle with emotions, anxiety, communication, decision-making, and self-care. It makes sense, then, that we would have a different set of tools and protocols for times like this. And that we’d have the inner resources to be able to care for ourselves as well as our clients.
Transitions require your technical skills, for sure. But they also require you to possess the personal-side skills your clients need from you as they move through their human experience of this worldwide transition and/or their own individual one.
Financial Transitions Planning teaches you the stages of transition and what to look out for and do during each stage. More important, though, is what it teaches you about yourself and how to be
for your clients.
- Cultivate deep listening skills.
- Learn what it means to provide a safe space for your clients so they feel protected.
- Help clients and their families process their thoughts and feelings about this collective event as well as their individual life events.
- Guide clients through decision-making.
- Develop a formalized self-care plan and show your clients how to create their own.
