Building Social Capital & Personal Success
Date: March 17th, 2011
Time: 12h00 - 14h00
The Directorate for Trade and Commerce under the FSE & CC is hosting a two-hour networking event today. The event will be in residence, beginning noon to 2pm. The theme for the event is: Building social Capital and Personal Success. Some of the questions to be discussed include:
1. Why is it that some organisations consistently outperform others, often within the same industry?
2. Why are some people you know getting ahead faster than others of seemingly similar abilities?
Among the many possible answers to these questions, two stand out. Individuals who get ahead the fastest, have the greatest energy and enthusiasm, and are the happiest typically are those who are the most effective value creators. Organisations, be it a corporation (small or large), a church, a school, or government, that consistently outperform others are those with the most effective value creating individuals.
What represents value differs though from one organisation to another. As an individual value creator, you need to understand or refresh your memory on the value creation context of your organisation, and your specific role in it. As a manager or executive who bears responsibility for increasing value in the organisation, you need to know the factors that create and destroy value at the organisational level.
There is a simple explanation of why people often fail to create value, even though that is what they mean to do. In addition, there is an explanation of why ‘sustained’ value creation does not happen consistently.
This unique opportunity is ideal for entrepreneurs, managers, supervisors, and other relevant parties wishing to diversify their networks in the domestic business environment and beyond.
