From the School of Hard Knocks: Thoughts About the Initial Client Interview
Initial client interviews are critical to the success of the planner-client relationship, yet aren’t studied that much by estate planners. In his exclusive LISI webinar, Paul will conduct an in-depth look at the initial planning client interview, principally by directly applying actual quotes from medical textbooks on the initial interview, to provide guidance to estate and financial planners. He also will:
· Compare what goes through the minds of the estate planner and the client during the initial client interview.
· Emphasize the importance of watching the non-verbal communication of clients.
· Discuss selected pointers about types of questions to ask and what types of questions to avoid.
· Lay out some interviewing suggestions to help make your interviews go more smoothly and be more productive.
In this hour long session, Paul will transform how you think about the initial client interview!
