Ongoing monitoring meetings get boring. Advisors and clients alike are not thrilled to be having the same meeting again and again where there is nothing new or exciting to report. Yet, when clients hit the “fine” phase of the client-advisor relationship, this can be the perfect time to start having “flourish” conversations and bring some fun back to the client-advisor relationship and transform the boring monitoring meetings. Join us and learn about thinking of the three phases of the client advisor relationship as fix, fine, flourish and the questions to ask clients that move them from fine to flourish which ends up brining the advisors back to where they are happiest, at fix.

Learning objectives:
  • Examine on-going monitoring meetings and what makes them boring and how to know when clients are bored too. 
  • Understand the fix, fine, flourish cycle to client advisor relationships. 
  • Define flourish and identify the flourish components.
  • Review questions and meeting process for having flourish conversations.
  • Identify how to start having flourish-based meetings.
