I'm an attorney and CFP, and I teach financial advisors and attorneys how to work with their clients as whole people, not just a pile of assets or a set of legal issues. Time to Think is required reading in all our programs at SunBridge, and has done more than any other thing I've given my professional colleagues to help them learn how to find the best answers for their clients--by listening with resspect and attention, and creating an environment in which the clients can do their best thinking.
My recommendation is that while you're ordering a copy for yourself, you order a few extras, because you're going to want to give a copy to all your friends, it's that good. This is absolutely a must read!
