I had the distinct pleasure of enrolling in the Dale Carnegie Course this fall, and I can safely say that it was one of the best investments I've ever made in my own personal and professional development. Carnegie, author of one of the biggest best-selling personal development books of all time, How to Win Friends and Influence People, is considered by many to be the father of the self help industry. From this book, published in 1936, spawned the modern-day personal development movement, and the company that bears his name offers this and other courses on sales, leadership and building interpersonal skills.
Not only did I learn so much from the course and book, but I made some wonderful new friends. I've already expressed interest in becoming a graduate assistant, and ultimately, instructor of this course. I highly recommend it!
