The overarching vision of the Kinder Institute is to bring Life Planning to everyone in the world by increasing the public’s knowledge about and demand for Life Planning, and by training Life Planners and helping them continue to develop their skills and practices.

“Until the advisor and client can discuss fears, conflicts, money beliefs, and biases openly, it will be difficult to stay on track or even build the right kind of plan,” writes Patricia Kummer, CFP® in her latest syndicated column. Psychology is an essential component of life planning. Advisors often struggle with experiencing emotional conversations with their clients. At Kinder Institute, we teach that it is essential for advisors to learn emotional intelligence and deepen their listening in order to better the lives of their clients. George D. Kinder‘s famous Three Questions provide a guide for advisors, helping them have authentic conversations with their clients while keeping an empathetic mindset.
