Agenda:

Topic: BUILDING SOCIAL CAPITAL: Weaving Your Web of Business Relationships

Speaker: Mr. Kim Sawyer, Executive and Enterprise Coach, Business Facilitator, and Professional Speaker

Presentation:
Social Capital - next to our spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical capacities - is the single greatest source of ongoing life-long value that we each possess. Other than our very lives and selves, it is our most important asset. Yet who among us even thinks of it that way, let alone consistently invests our time, energy, and money in building it?

- What is Social Capital anyway?
- Why is it so valuable?
- How do I strategically build it, maintain it, and grow it in value as a business asset?

In this seminar, we will explore these ideas and questions together, as well as take a look at some of the life disciplines, competencies, and skills required to leverage and capitalize on this tremendous source of wealth in our lives.

Kim is known for challenging and guiding people to consider new perspectives, alternate ways of thinking and innovative actions. He coaches from the larger context of the client system, integrating considerations of the team and organization and engaging team members and chain of command in the process and successful outcome of the coaching.
