Utilize Personality Traits to Enhance Client Connection, Communication, & Convincing (3 C’s) Within the Financial Planning Process 

profile shot of Preston Cherry

This presentation aims to increase the attendee's overall knowledge of personality trait history, theory, and assessment with a particular focus on The Five-Factor Moded personality traits.  A complimentary presentation focus is to present recent empirical research findings to provide an example of how financial practitioners can use personality trait assessment in their financial planning practices, and where the assessment can integrate into their processes.  Ultimately, personality trait identification may help enhance the 3'C of client interaction and motivation:  Connect, Communicate, & Convince (i.e. recommend, nudge, implement).
