Client Education Resources

As a financial coach, your primary duties are first to understand clients’ situations and goals, then help them prioritize action steps and educate them on how to work best toward their personal financial plans. To do this effectively, you need top-quality educational resources built especially for financial coaching.

Because every person has different financial habits, emotional connections with money, and current financial realities, we as financial coaches need to consider more than just content knowledge when developing their program. High-quality financial literacy curriculum also must focus on their behaviors, establishment of systems, and sentiments; and help them work toward positive outcomes.

The NFEC financial literacy lesson plans also include project-based learning lessons that perfectly align with the reporting software. This integration makes it easy for you to guide your client down a customized educational path.

Client Experience Resources: Scripts, Communications, Processes

A financial coaching program that creates a positive client experience can make your program stand out. Right after someone orders your program, your focus turns to ensuring that they have a smooth experience and feel supported at every step. The goal is to create an onboarding experience, showcase our professionalism during actual coaching, and continue to support participants indefinitely through thoughtful ongoing communication.

Most financial coaches do not think through what they will do during the gaps – the time in between the actual coaching practice sessions. By thinking through all communications in advance and designing touchpoints where clients feel supported, you position yourself as a top-quality provider of financial coaching and help your clients gain trust in your abilities and competencies as a professional financial coach.
