In more than 90 countries and all 50 states, we help people gain greater influence and make meaningful contributions in the places that matter most.

The Pioneer of Professional Development

Dale Carnegie is the original thought leader of workplace learning and professional development. With the bestselling book, How to Win Friends and Influence People, he is a pioneer in the industry. He realized that to change a person’s performance they must be engaged in the process, then coached towards successful habits. We still use this approach today to impact the lives of businesses and individuals.
