Monday/Tuesday, May 13 & 14, 2019 8:30 am – 4:30 pm | Greentree DoubleTree

Have you ever been awed by someone who always seems to know what to say and how to say it in any situation? That’s what this course is about.

You’ll gain dexterity and grace in dealing with new or trying situations; recognize how you come across to others; master your emotions while communicating; give and receive criticism constructively; present yourself as powerful – not intimidating; and gain other communications skills.

After completing this 2-day interpersonal skills training program, you’ll improve your professional communication skills and be able to say anything to anyone in ways that influence outcomes and create cooperation.  It’s also a great opportunity for graduates of previous Dale Carnegie courses to get back in personal development mode for your career and your organization.

For individual or team enrollment while space is available.
