The Top 3 Habits of Highly Resilient Financial Planners

Best Audience: Association Conferences, Leadership Events, Staff Training, Sales Rallies

“Everyone is born an artist. The trick is to re-capture that innate ability as an adult and put it into all aspects of life.” 

What happens when mistakes, setbacks, rejection, failures hit? Many people stay reactive and problem-focused causing them to lose business. People who bounce back quickly far outperform those who don't. But, it's not an intellectual exercise. You need good "habits of mind" to re-write how your brain operates.

After 11 years of research we have identified the top 3 habits of people who stay innovative, solutions-oriented, adaptive, centered, healthy, communicative and proactive in the face of setbacks.

We call these people “Change Artists”. The skills of a Change Artist don’t actually need to be learned. They are innate skills that you just need to remember to access. These practices require hardly any extra time during your day, and simply train your brain to stay in as high a performance state as possible, no matter what is going on around you.

During this engaging and practical program your group will discover how to:

  • understand different personality styles when it comes to handling change
  • shift a reactive mindset to a problem solving mindset.
  • turn complaints, resistance and setbacks into tools for positive change
  • create the structures that inspire a culture of innovation on your team

The Artistry of Change® is a powerful framework that blends diverse fields such as educational kinesiology, western and eastern psychology, change management theory, creative process models, and neuroscience. Witness how these fields are merging in exciting ways to produce the new ‘organizational artistry’.


"We only heard excellent reviews about your sessions at the conference! In particular, how engaging, practical, and effective your resilience tools were for all the people who attended. Thank you for doing such a great job!"
