What Alan Parisse Talks About:
Selling is back!
Actually, it never went away, but some in the business wanted to think it did.
I'm an advisor now. I don't have to (ugh) sell. Sorry, it doesn't work that way.
Recent advances in brain science are confirming that facts and figures are just table stakes. People buy emotionally. They work with advisors who get out on a limb and sell. In this program, Alan redefines what it means to sell in a way that turns the often manipulative methods of old into a client focused mission. Then he provides a roadmap for advisors to get back to the new basics and serve their clients and prospects.
A Lifetime of Saturdays
A successful retirement takes more than money. It takes understanding the human issues that arise and planning for them. Financial Advisors can serve current clients and attract new ones by expanding their client conversation to include more than money. This program will show advisors both the issues and the opportunity.
Thriving in Turbulent Times
Thriving in turbulent times starts with an understanding that the problems we make are almost always worse than the problems we have. Our reaction to problems frequently creates more difficulty than the underlying problems themselves.
The Great Salesperson
Some people say
people are people and selling hasn't changed. But it has. Technology has transformed manufacturing, finance and distribution. Now is the time to reinvent selling.
Shift into High Gear
Ride a bicycle downhill long enough and we think we're great athletes. Then we hit an uphill and realize we're out of shape. So we put it in low gear and plod up the hill. Do what bicycle racers do. They stay in low for most of a hill, but before the winners reach the top, they shift into high, pop out of their saddles and pump hard. That's how you win the race.
This is Your Time
This is your time to excel, not despite the challenges, but because of them. This is the time to Shift Into High Gear, optimize your business and position your organization for growing success. This
tough times talk provides the perspective needed to Thrive In Turbulent Times.
Questions Great Financial Advisors Ask...
It is the questions you ask, more than the presentations you make that leads to success for clients and advisors alike. Based on the widely selling book of the same title, this presentation covers attributes of great advisors as well as the questions they ask.
The New Face of a Leader
The traditional sources of power have disappeared or diminished. Today's leaders must re-evaluate their style and master new sources of influence. Lasting success will come to those leaders who inspire new ways of thinking, being and acting.
