About Requirements for being a Rooted Planning Group Fiscal Fitness Coach
There is no more important task than finding the right professionals to work with our clients. All our head Coaches must hold the CFP® certification. Our Assistant Coaches must be working to obtain the designation. We complete background checks, interviews with co-workers and references and then have web conference interviews to explore a candidate’s passions and skills. We believe that you need both planning skills and relationship skills to be an excellent financial coach. Our training program assists you in developing both sides of the skill ladder.
