Many people think that Dale Carnegie Training is strictly for adults looking to propel their careers and their personal lives in a positive direction. The truth of the matter is that Dale Carnegie Training of Southeast Michigan has introduced a new program called “Generation.Next: Dale Carnegie Training for Teens,” designed to prepare young people for the real world.
As reported in the Hartland Patch, a group of 20 students from Hartland Legacy High School, an alternative high school, graduated from the program on May 16. Their final act? Delivering a talk before their peers, parents and teachers in the auditorium at the Hartland Educational Support Service Center.
The outstanding graduates are as follows:
Dylan Boldt, Donald Converse, Brooke Diener, Katrina Doroczy, Joshua Eagle, Chelicie Holcomb, Alex Hollister, Richard Lawrence, Alex Neuville, Paige Noud, Alexa Parrish, Andrew Orban, Jordan Padgett, Sarah Rowan, Nick Teggerdine, Kurstie Starr Trawick and Cheyenne Wright.
Dale Carnegie Training for Teens gives them the skills they need to reach their goals and live up to their full potential — at school, home and work. At Dale Carnegie Training, we call them “skills that will last a lifetime.”
The course content focuses on five key areas that are critical for future success:
- Building self-confidence
- Enhancing communication skills
- Interpersonal skill development
- Teamwork and leadership skills
- Effective attitude management
Generation.Next curriculum was developed with feedback from students and parents. It consists of three full days of highly interactive sessions that include real-life scenarios and role-playing.
Graduates tell us that their new skills have made them:
- Highly focused on their goals
- Better decision makers when faced with difficult choices
- More persuasive communicators
- Better prepared when applying to college or interviewing for jobs
- Able to confront problems and challenges in a more positive way
- Confident to speak up in class
Today, the world is more complex, competitive and demanding than ever before. Young people often need to balance school, work and relationships — while at the same time, working and planning for their future. Generation.Next can help teens become more confident and better able to cope with the pressure and stress adolescents face.
This program is offered for teens ages 15 to 18 years old who have just completed their sophomore, junior or senior year of high school.
