What is in the Wealth Activation Program
The Wealth Activation Process
There are four steps in this process. These are:
- A behavioral audit of the key players using the Perth assessments.
- Sessions with top and emerging leaders to show how to use this information for strategy, operations, and financial analysis and planning purposes.
- A debrief session with assessees to use this information to improve their own financial and profit performance.
- Show how to use this to achieve improved valuation.
Perth has three core assessments. These are the Financial Outcome Assessment, the Corporate Financial Outcome Assessment, and the Leadership Cockpit assessment. These measure the following wealth activation attributes:
- Financial signature – innate wealth creation behavior of key individuals and teams
- Financial mission – the current, learned wealth activation approach being used by individuals and teams
- Corporate financial mission – the wealth creation approach being used currently by the organization and the level of alignment with the wealth creation approach currently being used by individual leaders and team.
These assessments provide comprehensive reports on all the aspects of wealth creation by leaders and key subsidiary leaders in the organization. They provide information on the key cognitive biases for all these people so as to predict their results in terms of financial outcome, impact on valuation and business outcomes as distinct from financial outcomes.
One or more sessions are conducted with all key leaders who have been assessed. This provides them with information customized just for them on what behaviors are creating wealth and which behaviors are detracting from this end.
Particular issues addressed include:
- How they can improve their own financial mission
- What financial mission they should be pursuing
- Their level of alignment with the financial mission of the organization that will achieve the optimum valuation outcome
- How they need to change their leadership style to meet the optimum business impact and financial valuation of the company
AS full training session with assessees is held so that they can understand the linkage between their behaviors and the financial and valuation impacts. This is important because they will not already know. In addition, it is very unlikely they will be aware of their own cognitive biases and how this affecting their financial and valuation impact.
In general, this session will last between one half-day and two days depending on the level of depth the organization wants, and the individuals require. In these sessions there will be interactive groups to show participants how these behavioral processes work in practice and to provide an interactive learning environment for concepts that will be unfamiliar to almost everyone in the session.
There will need to be a high-level strategy session following the preceding steps. The aims of the strategy session are:
- To identify the company’s optimum financial mission
- The actuary valuation that his implies for the company
- Which people need development effort to achieve changes in financial mission to be better aligned
- Positions in which different behaviors are required or where behaviors need to be changed appropriately
- The extent to which behaviors can be changed or not
- The level of change needed to achieve the optimum valuation and whether or not the people involved can achieve this.
