Why is Dale Carnegie Training of Southeastern Michigan different from other learning environments? With hundreds of training programs available that are a short internet search away, Dale Carnegie continues to grow with principles that are time –tested and proven over the decades.
The most important aspect of the Carnegie Principles is its common sense approach to process improvement and success. By focusing on definable and measureable goals, the fundamentals, based on helping others, makes organizations and companies better.
Dale Carnegie Training centers on four valuable aspects for professional improvement:
- Attitude: Being aware that everything centers on how we think and not what we do as individuals is a key ingredient to growth and increased opportunity for both leadership and teams.
- Knowledge: Learning is everything. Information that blends with understanding sets the stage for performance improvement and a successful corporate culture.
- Practice: Taking what is learned in classes, workshops, and sessions and applying it to daily situations make organizations better. If the application of knowledge works to improve success, repeat it and improve the process on a continuous basis.
- Skill: Having the right attitude and applying what we learn through practice, creates new abilities and improves the collective talents of everyone in the organization.
The connections built by successful professionals through improved and growing relationships are driven by relational commonality and active listening. Employee engagement and teamwork drive businesses to continuous process improvement. By focusing on clear goals and objectives, the discoveries learned together always center on positive accomplishments and outcomes.
Leadership must constantly remember three components for building others up:
- Don’t criticize, condemn or complain.
- Give honest and sincere appreciation.
- Arouse in the other person an eager want.
In Mr. Carnegie’s classic business book: How to Win Friends and Influence People, he states: “It is not what you have or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about it.”
Often the key difference in Dale Carnegie Training is the focus on others through the positive attitudes of the individuals. Seeing good things in people brings out good things. The Carnegie Principles are indeed built on common sense.
