John Maxwell Leadership Bible: (Proverbs 18:21)
Few muscles in a body wield more power than the little one inside the mouth. The Bible says, "Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit" (Prov. 18:21). Leaders who understand this greatly increase their influence.
Our understanding of leadership has evolved over the last five or six decade. The way people expect leaders to lead has changed. Many have said our culture has witnessed four styles of leadership since 1950:
As a financial advisor, I don't want or believe clients should give unquestioned obedience in the development of a retirement plan. I am not the CEO type of advisor that believes the vision I have to achieve the client's retirement goals. I believe in coaching clients in planning for their retirement but do not consider them only as a players on the team.
As I develop a relationship with the clients, we begin to express the heart of the aims and goals in development of a plan to reach retirement and ascertain that their retirement funds will outlive them. It is quite a shock when a person reaches retirement and finds great enjoyment only to discover during their retirement years that they will outlive their retirement funds.
My goal with each client is working with them to provide for their retirement and they can remain retired rather than seeking additional funds to meet their needs.
Have a great day!
