Client-Focused Communication 
Derek Villanueva, Delaware Resource Group

More than a popular catchphrase, client-focused communication is a proven key to the magic kingdom. Take a deeper look at why, what, when, and how to create a conversation environment that inspires client trust.

Questions - Part 1: Questions with Purpose and Payoff 
Dot Rhyne, Brand Talkers

Asking the right questions at the right time for the right reasons helps unlock critical information needed to best serve client short and long-term needs.

Questions - Part 2: Conversation Discipline

Follow a natural path to "yes" and watch the magic happen. Clients will help us learn what we need to know if we demonstrate an intent to understand instead of respond.

Resolving Concerns

Client concerns come in all shapes and sizes. Understanding the different types of concerns and having a game plan to resolve them makes for a better client experience, accelerating our opportunity for the "yes" we all seek.

What We Sell
