The moment we stated that this workshop was NOT about business practice management and we would NOT be sharing “Best Prospecting Strategies” they came close to applauding. The last thing we wanted to do was present the “same old stuff” with just a different twist. We wanted to take these women to a place that was “edgy” defying the standard methods and traditional approach and that’s exactly what they wanted.
This past week I gave my Breaking the Mold workshop to a fabulous group of 50 female financial advisors. From the moment we started the presentation these women were participating. They knew this conference was going to be different but they didn’t know how and yet there was no hesitation to jump right in. Much of what we talked about the first day was the benefits that come when you move out of your comfort zone. It is when we are uncomfortable that change happens, growth happens, success happens. It was obvious from the start that these women were ready and anxious for growth and success.
After 1 ½ days of great participation, lot’s of laughter and even sharing tears and stories these women left the workshop refreshed and reinvigorated. They left with a new perspective as to how to leverage their strengths as a woman to accomplish more as a financial advisor. These women left the conference ready to step out of their comfort zone in order to achieve the success they deserve.
Over my next few blogs I will share some of the key points of the workshop with tips as to how you too can “Break the Mold” and accomplish more as a female financial advisor.
