Session Details

Curiosity, Balance and the Money Gene

Advanced Training for Collaborative Professionals

Charlottetown, PE, Canada


About This Session

Our interdisciplinary training team will offer advanced training from a “lessons learned” perspective! Professionals and clients in the collaborative process bring their own histories, perspectives and emotions about money. The “money conversations” are often very difficult and full of emotion.

This workshop will help participants better understand how emotions and perspectives tied to “money” impact the clients, the team and the entire collaborative process. An interdisciplinary case study will provide the foundation for participants to identify and work with the emotions and obstacles that tend to show up around the financial aspects of the case, manage the "push/pull" of advocacy and understand the fluidity of professional roles in addressing money issues.

Interactive exercises will challenge participants' thinking about how “teamwork” works with challenging money issues, how our respective roles fulfill different and similar needs for the parties, and how personal and team reflection is important in moving cases forward. This workshop will help you maximize the positive effects of neutrality, cultivate curiosity in challenging conversations, and gain insight into the many different “money genes” inhabiting our clients and team members.
