6 Ways To Make A Lasting Impression

Posted: 11/18/11 03:30 PM ET

When I first came to Dale Carnegie Training, I had no idea of the passion and commitment I would find among employees as well as current and former customers. As we approach our 100th year anniversary, I'm proud to be a leader at a company that has evolved from one man's belief in self-improvement into an international performance-improvement training company that has serviced some of the most influential business leaders in the world, including those at 400 out of the Fortune 500 companies. As Dale Carnegie Training continues to evolve we are pleased to offer programs and private, in-house solutions that emphasize practical principles and real-world challenges. In fact, one of the biggest real world challenges facing executives today is how to use new digital platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Skype, blogs, etc. We believe that, with this updated advice, our customers are able to gain a competitive advantage. I look forward to seeing the ways that our founder's timeless principles, first penned in 1936, will assist in the path to success for all readers, current and former class members, and those dedicated customers that we at, Dale Carnegie Training, have been privileged to serve.

By nature we are all most interested in ourselves more than in others. But, in order for our followers to trust us we cannot just self promote. The person who is the most well-read online, whether it be a Facebook status update, a tweet, or a blog post, will be that person who is paying attention to what their followers are talking about on a daily basis. In the end, by taking a vested interest in other's interests this will increase our power and influence in the digital sphere.
