February AAEPC Education Event - Behavioral Finance
Taking Action! Understanding the stages of change and how advisors can get in the way?
One of our primary jobs is to help clients make decisions and act on them but, as every advisor knows, that is easier said than done. Amanda Harvey from the Institute of Family Success at PNC Private Bank will speak on Thursday, February 23, 2023 about how advisors need to understand the stages of change, so we can guide our clients who want to make decision (or maybe don’t!) to taking action. Importantly, advisors aren’t always the positive influence that we strive to be. Sometimes it’s our behavior that creates unintentional barriers to success. Amanda will help us understand our actions and how they impact the ability of our clients to make decisions and achieve success.
Ticket includes an open bar and hors d'oeuvre. Free for AAEPC members.
