Financial Advisors: 3 Easy Steps That Integrate Workshop Learning

Posted by Alix Purcell on Sep 19, 2013 9:55:00 AM


Have you ever attended a brilliant seminar or workshop that is filled with achievable and beneficial ideas that you’d like to employ…only to return to your office without ever implementing?

 

If so, you’re not alone. However, we have observed that there are some relatively easy steps that you can take to ensure that the “brilliant” ideas are integrated into new behaviors:

 

  • Start at the event. Meaningful follow-through requires some planning. While you are still at the event and the new learning is fresh in your mind, identify specific follow-through steps that you’d like to apply, and sketch this out in a plan of action. The key is to begin the process BEFORE you get back to the clamor and tumult of your office.
  • Give yourself a deadline. Deadlines are good in that they compel you to take action. As you think about your plan, assign by prioritizing. For example, you could establish A-B-C priorities, i.e. must do, nice to do, should do.
  • Look for immediate “wins”, even small ones. Since success tends to beget success, look for “wins” that can be implemented straightaway. Your achievements will provide subtle reinforcement that guides you down the path of transformative change.
 
Speaking of brilliant workshops, could we mention the ClientWise Business Builders Workshop™?
