Brief Summary of Episode #176

After having such a great conversation with my wife, Delena on the podcast, we decided to flip the script.

Delena and I discuss the trends, lessons, and patterns I’ve seen in finance over the past 20 years since founding the Digital Growth Institute. 

“If you want to maximize your future growth potential, you are going to have to ACT for growth.”

So, ACT is an acronym.

Awareness + Commitment = Transformation

Awareness comes from learning and thinking.

Transformation comes from doing and reviewing what you’ve done.

Organizations, teams, and individuals often know what they need to do but fall short of committing to do it.

This is why commitment can be either the greatest struggle for a financial brand or the biggest opportunity that will propel them forward on their Digital Growth Journey. 

For financial brands wanting to maximize their future digital growth potential, they must commit to: 

1. Tell the truth about where they've been, where they are, and where they want to grow next

2. Training and education to help the unaware become aware of the greatest growth opportunities ahead 

3. Taking time to think clearly about how they can apply the insights they gain through training in context to their biggest goals for growth, the roadblocks that stand in the way of those goals, and the greatest opportunities available to overcome those roadblocks as they commit to move forward and make progress on their journey of growth with courage and confidence.
