According to Dr. Daniel Goleman, a notable Harvard University professor and author of “EQ,” only a small portion—20%—of success is linked to professional expertise. The larger 80% is credited to attitudes and interpersonal skills. This underscores the importance of Dale Carnegie training, especially in helping young individual nurture a more confident and optimistic outlook towards life.
Here’s what the students of the
Dale Carnegie Course for Youths have to say
“I’ve transformed from feeling anxious about sharing my thoughts in new settings to confidently expressing my opinions and suggestions. I’ve also shifted from disinterest in others to embracing friendships. Now, I approach challenges with an optimistic mindset. Grateful to my (Dale Carnegie) teachers, seniors, and friends for empowering me to break through these barriers.”
– Wang ZC, International School, 14yo
“I was once highly opinionated and reluctant to consider my family’s viewpoints, often leading to arguments, especially with my brother. Thanks to the Dale Carnegie Course for Youths, I’ve learned to communicate more reasonably with them. Seeing my brother and me converse respectfully despite differing opinions, my mother felt the course was worth every penny!”
– Lu JN, Junior College
“Attending the Dale Carnegie Course for Youths at 15 gave me the confidence and skills to persuasively communicate with my parents using the Dale Carnegie principles. Previously, I insisted on doing things my way, demanding their respect for my choices. Post-program, I effectively addressed their concerns about a school activity, earning their complete support.”
– Xu RY, College Year 1
“At around 16, I attended the Dale Carnegie Course for Youths unaware of what it entailed, as recommended by my mom. It felt like a fun summer camp. The two most valuable takeaways were improved self-confidence and stress management. During a nerve-wracking interview for an engineering role, facing a senior panel and an unexpected question, I exude confidence and suggested improvised solutions. I secured the job, not because my answer was perfect, but because I demonstrated the ability to handle pressure and seek solutions—an aspect the senior manager said they sought.”
