A Conversation with George Kinder
Presented by the Alliance of Comprehensive Planners (ACP)
Life Planning can reliably deliver the most exhilarating, pragmatic and meaningful financial planning meetings for your clients. In my presentations at the ACP Conference, I’ll discuss Life Planning’s five-phase EVOKE® process and how its roots in mindfulness and listening skills reveal clients’ dreams of freedom and then deliver them. Through lecture and experiential exercise, we will consider the inner listening/mindfulness skills required for mastery of client conversations and the significance of great listening in successful client engagement.
Thursday, Sept. 27, 1 p.m. EDT
Kinder, along with ACP President-Elect and Registered Life Planner® Frankie Corrado, CFP® (Blue Blaze Financial Advisors, Holmdel, New Jersey), will explore:
How to bring one’s authentic self to client meetings
How advisors can help their clients live their best lives
What life planning brings to a comprehensive financial planning practice
How implementing this philosophy improves the advisor/client experience
How to incorporate the Kinder philosophy into the practice
The webcast is free to attend but financial professionals must register in advance, as space is limited: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/5035230385605836812.

KINDER LEADING WORKSHOP, KEYNOTING AT ACP ANNUAL CONFERENCE
Kinder will also be keynoting at the ACP Annual Conference being held Nov. 7-9, 2018. in Miami. “Life Planning can reliably deliver the most exhilarating, pragmatic and meaningful financial planning meetings for your clients,” said Kinder. “In my presentations at the ACP Conference, I’ll discuss Life Planning’s five-phase EVOKE® process and how its roots in mindfulness and listening skills reveal clients’ dreams of freedom and then deliver them. Through lecture and experiential exercise, we will consider the inner listening/mindfulness skills required for mastery of client conversations and the significance of great listening in successful client engagement. I will identify the three phases of initial client meetings that develop relationships of trust and explain how to help clients move from trust to inspired action on their financial plan. I will close with themes of my new book A Golden Civilization and provide fresh approaches to economics and democracy, and the role financial planners will play.”
On Nov. 5 and 6, 2018, as a pre-conference option being offered the two days immediately preceding the ACP Annual Conference, Kinder will be leading his signature “Seven Stages of Money Maturity” workshop. “Advisors will learn how to improve their listening, relationship and inspirational skills. We will discuss the psychology of money and provide a model for understanding and developing client relationships as well as one’s own relationship to money,” Kinder said.
