Dale Carnegie Instructors make a difference

We change how you see yourself

which changes how the world sees you, and that changes the impact you have on the world!

We invest our time, energy and skill to bring out the inherent abilities hidden within you.

If Enthusiasm is the electricity of life then our instructional team is a POWERHOUSE when it comes to changing the lives and behaviors of others! 


We are proud to present the world’s most elite group of facilitators.  Dale Carnegie Instructors begin their journey with a genuine desire to help people succeed.  In order to offer college accredited programs, our instructor candidates must first possess a 4 year degree or higher and have a minimum of 5 years management and business experience. 


Candidates then embark upon 500+ hours of training prior to receiving their Instructor Certification through Dale Carnegie Training Global.  This intensive process is required globally in order for an individual to independently teach any Dale Carnegie Course or workshop.  What this means to our customers is that they receive the quality, consistency and results regardless of where in the world their employees participate in a Dale Carnegie program. 


We are proud of our quality-driven, intensive process and once a candidate completes this vigorous process, they are dedicated to the success of others.
