You’ve heard of the Dale Carnegie course, but should you take it? Many successful people—from Dr. Sanjay Gupta to Warren Buffet, attribute their success to the Effective Communications and Human Relations skills taught in this course. View more famous graduates.
Here are five questions to ask yourself to determine if you should take the course:
- Are you 100% satisfied with your communication skills, both verbal and nonverbal?
Most people are not. Moreover, they don’t realize that there are three components to a message: Words account for 7%; tone of voice accounts for 38% and surprise…body language accounts for 55% of the overall message.
In this course, students uncover the tools for becoming natural, more powerful communicators both verbally and non-verbally. They become more demonstrative in their communication which ultimately enables them to not only engage, but to influence others.
- When negotiating or having a heated discussion, do you easily win people to your way of thinking?
Confrontation is often feared simply because most people worry that they may say something wrong and regret it later. They may seek to understand, but end up offending someone. The Dale Carnegie Course for Effective Communications and Human Relations Skills offers a solution to achieving the fine balance of negotiation. Upon completion, graduates are able to persuasively communicate in a way that ultimately pushes people into action.
- Do you feel enthusiastic, confident and energized before you speak to large audiences?
Dale Carnegie said, “The truth has to be made vivid, interesting, dramatic. You have to use showmanship. The movies do it. The radio does it. And you will have to do it if you want attention.” The course includes a comprehensive plan for not only developing courage, but for delivering amazing presentations. Students learn how to use their own experiences to communicate more confidently, clearly and concisely. Equally important, they learn to become more animated for maximum audience engagement.
- Consider your professional and personal relationships. Do you believe that you have established trust, and earned respect and appreciation?
The Dale Carnegie Human Relations principles have been proven to strengthen interpersonal relationships. By learning simple steps to make a positive impression on others; earn their trust and win their cooperation, students consistently report that their home and work relationships are improved. Better yet, many report that they have earned promotions, improved team collaboration and gained higher sales.
- Are you able to recall the names of people when you bump into them?
It happens every day—the face looks familiar, but the name just can’t be recalled from memory. This course teaches tools that improve the ability to recall facts and names. The Memory Linking technique leverages the mind’s disposition to think in terms of pictures in order to attain maximum retention.
