Life Priorities Discovery

The Life Priorities Discovery program provides advisors with an engagement model that demostrates the appropriate behaviors in order to earn the trust of their clients and prospects.

The goal of the Life Priorities Discovery program is not necessarily to uncover the values of the client; it is rather to build the trust required in order for the clients to reveal what their deepest motications are. 

This program provides advisors with a conversation model that has a framework and tools that can be used to gain greater insight into a client's priorities, values, and goals. The model will give advisors the opportunity to demonstrate to clients the three key ingredients for trust; integrity, competency, and compassion.
