Encouraging rigorous, constructive debate is indispensable to navigating challenges of high uncertainty, from extending the bounds of knowledge to scaling a business. Argument is “how we come to understand things,” observes (David) Krakauer, a tough and contentious critic who sees (Santa Fe Institute’s) role as a crucible, a place where ideas are put to the test. “I believe in freedom and I believe in community. I also believe in rigor and…challenging nonsense.” Many companies, however, develop cultural and procedural barriers to productive debate, valuing organizational harmony over innovation. The challenge is to find the balance: to foster an environment where people feel comfortable sharing — and arguing — the merits of different perspectives”.

The Certior Group True Wealth Design Process is an important difference between our firm and most other wealth management and financial services firms that we’re aware of. It really comes down to the spirit of collaboration among advisers and a true client-first approach to our work. By collaboration, we mean healthy respect for other advisers and intense debate in order to co-create solutions for clients.
Before we begin debating and creating solutions, one of the first things we do for clients is to help them get organized. Nothing is more frustrating for a client and their advisers than to have too much data and information scattered in too many places for anyone to keep track of, let alone manage effectively. We take advantage of the excellent technology that’s currently available in order to create a personalized dashboard for our clients. This sets the conditions under which high-level collaboration and planning can occur. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more detailed information on how we can help you get organized, plan, and succeed with our unique tools and processes.
