Strengthen and unify your Financial Advisor Team

Teams are the principle building blocks of the strategy of successful organizations. The focus of your organization may be on service, quality, cost, value, speed, efficiency, performance, or any other similar goals, but teams remain the central methodology of most organizations across sectors.

Vertical teams and horizontal teams can transcend organizational silos and boundaries if properly focused and supported. Building collaborative teams can improve the client experience. In Supernova Teams: Effective Team Strategies for Financial Advisors, you’ll discover the macro rationale and justification for teams, as well as the micro benefits of team formation.

From on-boarding a new team member to finding effective ways to bolster the ones you already have, this book shows you how to turn any team into a cohesive, productive unit with like-minded goals.
