Every successful financial planner, at some point, has to hire staff to continue to grow their business. As financial planners, we want to hire superstars. We want that perfect staffing model that can help us do our work for us. Just imagine having a well-oiled machine where your job is to hang out and encourage your team while they do your work for you-to stop having your business run you, and instead become the CEO of your business. After interviewing hundreds of financial planners, we discovered the top sixteen things they worry about when it comes to building and managing their teams. Ask yourself, have you ever had any of the following concerns?"How am I going to pay for my staff?""My staff are making more money than I am.""I don't know how to hire people?""What if I hire the wrong person?""When and how do I fire people?""I don't know how to manage well.""How do I come up with a compelling pay plan?""I don't know how to train people.""Attracting high quality people is a challenge for me.""What assessments do I use to find the right staff?""How do I hold people accountable and monitor my staff?""How do I instill intrinsic motivation?""I struggle with difficult conversations.""I don't know how to foster a collaborative environment.""Empowering others is something I'm having a hard time doing.""How do I build and keep a great team culture?"We'll address how to handle each of these sixteen concerns and more in this program. You'll learn how to find, assess and qualify the right people, create compelling compensation and team culture, communicate with and empower your staff, and motivate your dream team.

There is a 75% chance that they didn't give you the right language for your style. Most gurus don't explain why it works; they just assure you that it does. If you're going to make up your own language, you need to understand why it works.
