Testimonials regarding The 8 Characteristics of the Awesome Adjuster
Carl Van is the master of conversation! He takes the “claims hammer” out of an adjuster`s hand before a relationship is damaged beyond repair, suggesting more empathetic tools to successfully navigate the tensest of situations. He is coach and therapist combined, and all claims people will benefit from his “first, do no harm” philosophy.
-Sam Friedman, Editor-In-Chief National Underwriter
This book says it all… it reminds us that successful adjusters seek cooperation in their negotiations through a high degree of empathy and careful listening, and by staying away from the “Claims Hammer.”
