POWELL, Wyo. - According to social scientists, the success of business, philanthropic and personal endeavors depends a lot on social capital. A six-hour class offered Saturday, Feb. 8, in Powell will show participants how to build social capital to create value-added living.
Instructor Karen Roles will show participants how attending to the quantity and quality of relationships in their life leads to more opportunities and better outcomes. She’ll share the skills and techniques needed to create, measure and leverage relationship assets for an enhanced life experience.
“The beauty of social capital,” Roles said, “is that its creation will not only have a positive impact on your life, but it will simultaneously improve the quality of life for your community.”
Roles has studied social capital as a doctoral student and used it in her community-building work.
“Value-Added Living: Skills for Building Social Capital” meets from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. in the Northwest College Center for Training and Development on the West Campus in Powell.
Cost is $30 and includes lunch. Advance registration is required by noon Friday, Feb. 7.
