In Cadence of Care, Tim Owings, Ph.D., CFP® illustrates a new model for client care mined from his 25 years as an ordained minister.  Using compelling stories from his dynamic background, Owings shows how an individual’s keen awareness of human behavior can create deeper more meaningful interpersonal experiences.

Professionals who integrate into their work the imaginative concepts depicted in this book will deepen relationships, find greater job satisfaction, and grow their business.  When a person believes somebody “gets it,” they readily tell others.  Put your finger on the pulse of each client’s need to be validated and discover an innovative way to transform your practice and your life.  



Imagining a Transformed Advisor-Client Experience


Should financial advisors have the same relationship with their clients as clergy have with their parishioners? The answer is a resounding “yes!” The concepts Tim Owings shares in his book provide a comprehensive blueprint to integrate into practice that same level of pastoral care and compassion. Helping someone achieve financial stability at various stages in life requires not only a knowledge of risk tolerance and rates of return but also a focused understanding of an individual’s needs and vulnerabilities. I believe the insights gleaned from Cadence of Care will instill in financial advisors a greater sense of awareness in meeting the goals and aspirations of their clients.
