5.0 out of 5 stars This could set the world alight! 14 Jan 2011
This book will change the way you think about your life. It's a fact that people find Life Coaches really helpful. It's a growing movement. There is no doubt that their methods can help people break through glass ceilings and reach their potential by achieving their goals. But are these goals what people truly want? By reading this book will you realise that Kinder approaches this subject in a completely new way. To start with Kinder is a remarkable man, a totally focused person who has discovered the value of daily meditation, he seems to intuit what people want and draws it out of them using a process that he has formulated. He calls this The Kinder Method of Life Planning and breaks this down with the acronym EVOKE, Exploration, Vision, Obstacles, Knowledge and Execution. It's apparent that the authors really know their subject and there is a wealth of information which combined with the help of a mentor will transform your ability to really become a deeply trusted adviser and to understand how it works.
However, to be truly successful with Financial Life Planning, it's essential to be Life Planned yourself by a trained life planner. This isn't something that can be easily self-taught and attending the 5 Day EVOKE course is a prerequisite to being successful in this new method of helping people uncover and discover what they really want to do with their future lifetime. And this starts with sorting out your own life! Having the additional knowledge of all that financial planning can do will set you apart from a Life Coach no matter how accomplished they are. I strongly urge you to get this book now. Once you've read it and reread it - you won't want to sell it - you will treasure it - I'll be bound

5.0 out of 5 stars Marrying Meaning With Money Through the EVOKE(c) Process 14 Oct 2007
By Denis Hijmans - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book describes the E.V.O.K.E.(c) process, which is a truly remarkable method for working with financial planning clients that want a deeper relationship with their planner, and a plan for their lives. Using the techniques and process so well described in the book, a CFP(r) practitioner can take their client(s) to a deeper understanding of their life's goals and aspirations. When used with the knowledge obtained from a careful and complete reading of the "companion" book "The Seven Stages of Money Maturity", a planner can provide very meaningful service to their client.
True understanding of the E.V.O.K.E.(C) Process which stands for Exploration, Vision, Obstacles, Knowledge and Execution comes after one has attended the 5 day training course offered by the Kinder Institute, so named after the co-author George Kinder.

For those seeking a deeper relation with financial planning clients, there is no better book in this field.

5.0 out of 5 stars A powerful work 14 Jan 2009
By Colin Drake - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a rare book in that it is both highly practical in the very specific skills and processes it teaches and also highly inspirational in sharing a vision of financial planning done right. Anyone with an inclination toward life planning will be extremely well served by reading this book. George Kinder is a man of great depth, experience and vision. He mines these qualities in creating what is really a textbook for how to offer true life planning. The reader is sure to experience revealing self-reflection while learning how to guide clients through their own. One thing which differentiates this book from others on life planning is that it points to the importance of and teaches some very powerful relationship building skills. It reveals how central to the life planning process clients' emotions are and teaches how to work with them. Full of inspiration, wisdom, joy and vision, this book is a must read for any financial planner.
