Relational Capital Trumps Financial Capital

Shawn Shewchuk will be teaching industry leaders the “Business of People” at the Energize Canada’s Energy Leadership Forum.

The leveraging power of relational capital has more value to today’s business leaders than their ability to attract financial capital. Leaders who have influence are leaders who are successful. The simple truth is that people do business with people they know and trust which has never been truer than it is today. Building, nurturing and leveraging relational capital is a requisite for long term success.

Successful leaders have large and diverse networks. Their networks carry value in relational capital the same as a bank account carries financial capital. Successful leaders make frequent deposits and consider withdrawals very carefully to ensure the maximum return possible. The quality and diversity of a leaders’ network determines the value of their relational capital.

Building relational capital is about connecting instead of just communicating. Many people communicate yet so few leaders connect with their network. Connecting is paramount for strong relationships and a successful business.

The Business of People teaches leaders the tools and strategies that enable them to connect with their colleagues and peers. Shawn Shewchuk’s program helps industry leaders to leverage relationship building and connecting to achieve their next level of success.

“Relational capital is the single most important success factor in leadership today,” said Shawn Shewchuk, author of Change Your Mind; Change Your Results. “The most successful entrepreneurs and their coaches have all leveraged strong relationships to achieve their success. Energize Canada’s Energy Leadership Forum is the perfect setting for building relational capital and learning from other great speakers like Brett Wilson and Hal Kvisle.”

The Business of People is a roadmap to building strong and fruitful relationships that enable successful leaders to grow the business or career of their dreams. Shewchuk’s program teaches business owners and executives that it is not who you know, but who knows you. Business and relationships become simpler when people are taught these skills and tools.

Shawn will be speaking at Energize Canada’s Energy Leadership Forum at the Hotel Arts in Calgary, AB. on May 15 and 16, 2013. The event is hosted by JuneWarren-Nickle’s Energy Group and was added to the Oilweek Rising Stars awards program in order to foster growth for the next generation of energy leaders.
