About Dale Carnegie
Founded in 1912, Dale Carnegie has evolved from one man’s belief in the power of self- improvement to a performance-based training company with offices worldwide.
Initially a salesperson himself, he was passionate about sharing and training the best practices he had learned in his own job. He started to deliver on this passion by training Presentation Skills at the YMCA. Very quickly he learned that presenting was not the only skill business people had a challenge with, it was building relationships and collaborating with others that was the hardest part of business life. He looked for a book on this topic and found nothing, so he decided to write one himself. By bundling years of experience and in-depth research, the ever best seller ‘How to Win Friends & Influence People’ was born.
More than 100 years later, his original body of knowledge has been constantly updated, expanded, and refined through nearly a century’s worth of real-life business experiences. The Dale Carnegie franchisees around the world (190+) now train organizations of all sizes to increase based on his initial belief. The result of this collective, global experience is an expanding reservoir of business acumen that our clients rely on to drive results.
