Why Clients Don’t Take Our Advice – And What You Can Do About It

Seating at this special luncheon event is limited to 20.  Register early to reserve your seat.

Does psychology really matter in business and organizational performance? Certainly everyone “knows” what he or she needs to do to succeed. Yet, as we know, many very smart people just don’t do it. Why is that? It’s not about the lack of competent resources – experts abound with insightful and efficient approaches to remove obstacles and achieve success. Yet, tragically, those things are often ignored, handled poorly or, even worse, addressed too late – much to the frustration of their professional advisors and others who are adversely affected. Often, it comes down to common psychological barriers. Business Therapist Michel Zelnick will discuss many of the key psychological issues that interfere with effective behavior change and, most importantly, what can be done about it.
