A comprehensive exit plan requires participation by multiple professionals. Each brings a specific area of technical skill to the table. Highly skilled advice is useless, however, if it falls on deaf ears.
In this session we will discuss how to position yourself as a “psychological fiduciary,” someone who is seen not only as putting the client’s interests first, but who also has the credibility to call the client’s own beliefs into question.
Success as a trusted advisor comes from understanding the motivations and fears of a business owner, and establishing this credibility from the very first meeting. We will discuss specific techniques for establishing rapport, disagreeing without challenging, and shifting between the roles of coach and consultant.
