Client Feedback

The three sessions we programmed were extraordinarily successful. Andy was able to quickly and easily engage leaders, which can be very difficult given our skeptical culture. A Tier 1 leader who is VERY tough with huge time demands stayed for the entire session and made a point to let Andy know that he did a great job. The evaluations are overwhelmingly positive and demonstrate that people were able to learn how to utilize the process and make positive shifts in their thinking/ experience in just a couple of hours. Andy is clearly a rock star instructor who cares deeply about giving people practical tools to improve the quality of their lives.
– Wells Fargo
An excellent introduction to resiliency. If practiced well, it can tremendously reduce the burden of stress at work and home.
– Johnson & Johnson
Eye-opening. It’s quite different from other training programs because this is more than just accepting that I can’t change my surroundings. Instead it changes my perspective. Very positive.
– Genentech
A clear, concise way to deal with challenges, with practical applications and immediate results.
– Coca-Cola
Year after year, Andy Bernstein’s sessions are among the top requested and top scoring sessions at the Securities Industry Institute. Andy’s approach and tools to managing challenging situations are relevant both personally and professionally and attendees leave with actionable takeaways and a changed mindset. It is always a pleasure to read the attendee evaluations from his sessions and see what an impact he had on them in 90 minutes, and Andy is always listed as one of the favorite faculty members of the program.
– Securities Industry Institute
This is the exact direction I’m trying to go with my practice. Every financial advisor today needs this framework and toolkit. Very helpful.
– Raymond James
Most impactful session I’ve ever had. I look forward to a life of using these tools.
Enormously positive, useful, tangible ways of thinking differently, and real ways of solving differences. I feel much more wise at work already. Wishing I had done this when I began my career.
– Citi
Eye-opening on changing your perspective when dealing with tough issues and solving them.
– Merrill Lynch
Groundbreaking. This was the first time I’ve been given a logical, step-by-step process to get from the beginning point to the end point of changed awareness without being intimidating or too New Agey.
– 21st Century Fox
This was by far the most useful, provocative, and fascinating seminar I have ever participated in. It’s not nonsense, it’s not a Band-Aid, it’s just smart, tangible, and something that can be implemented across the board.
– Ogilvy
An enlightening experience that gave us a new tool to manage work/life responsibilities. It’s a great technique I would recommend to other organizations committed to helping their employees be more productive and balanced.
– Patagonia
Andrew Bernstein was a fantastic addition to our Learning Year Calendar. His presentation was captivating, eye-opening, and thought-provoking. I highly recommend his presentation for business leaders, to family members, or anyone looking to live a happier, healthier life!

Wonderful, very insightful with real life applications. Very helpful tool to start building psychological safety at work.
– Charles Schwab
Exceptional. Should be required for everyone. This is one of the most actionable and valuable approaches in my 50+ year lifetime.

How the Program Works

This program helps top advisors deepen client relationships and turn well-being into a “referral engine.” Here’s how:

  • First you learn: You watch short videos on well-being, learning what matters most for increasing it. This trains you for deeper client connections. It also gives you and your whole team a well-being tune-up.
  • You host a virtual client event: Here’s a sample video invitation. Clients will find the event eye-opening, meaningful, and practical, deepening their relationship with you. They will wish they could have invited others.
  • You follow-up: You send attendees a book and follow-up. Typically, 80% will say they wished their spouse, children, and other loved ones had attended too.
  • You host a second virtual event: Clients invite their kids. COIs invite their clients. You get to deliver another wave of emotional impact.
  • You follow-up again: You send more books, and now have new relationships with your clients’ kids and networks, without being salesy. This is the power of creating a referral engine around well-being, not money.

Don’t sit on the sidelines. Advisors who show up emotionally will win.

Covid and polarization have taken an enormous toll on well-being, but they have also opened a special door for advisors:

1. Everybody now recognizes the need for greater well-being — UHNW, Next Gen, entrepreneurs, institutional clients, COIs. Everybody.
2. Everybody now also knows how to use a webinar
3. You now have a special chance to deliver non-financial value to Next Gen and beyond, across the entire country, in a way that brands you as a different kind of advisor

Client Event Options

Common Questions

No, but virtual is strongly recommended. Client events used to be in-person because there was no other option. Covid changed that.

By putting the event online, your older clients can attend, and they can also invite their kids all over the country. And you can invite attorneys, doctors, nonprofit directors, 401k directors. You can let COIs invite their clients. You have a much larger prospect pool, with no food, beverage, and venue costs, no traffic, and no geographical limitations. Invite your own college friends, your networking group, your book club, your whole team’s connections. That’s how you get the best ROI.

The main deliverable is two virtual client events that can help client families and institutions thrive thanks to you and the content you bring to them.

To help you invite clients and prospects persuasively, you also receive virtual coaching in well-being and resilience. These are broken down into short videos that you watch on your own, helping you integrate a better well-being toolkit into your client conversations, your team meetings, and your own family.

In addition to the two client events, each advisor gets:

Access to the Indispensable Advisor lessons that help you integrate well-being into your client service model.

Access to Resilience Academy content so you live with less stress in your personal life, and can share this with your loved ones.

These are good for one year from the start date, so you have time to integrate the content before and after the client events.
