Successfully Partnering Advisors
by Tony Bosch

One of the best opportunities that we have to increase production within our agencies is to build effective business relationships among our advisors.

The Benefits of Having a Team of Equals 

Perhaps you've had managers who expected things to be done their way, with little appreciation for your decisions and ideas. Think back to that time, and imagine how it felt. If you've had managers who were (or believed they were) authorities on everything and expected you, who are very smart and creative, to do things their way, chances are you weren't happy. Maybe you even left that position to work for someone who appreciated your ideas and treated you as an equal thinking partner. Source: Aspire Collaborative Services LLC
