If you are looking for a new business to add to your investment portfolio, a Dale Carnegie franchise is a smart move, no matter how you look at it.
Although over one hundred years have passed since Dale Carnegie first pioneered his innovative program for corporate training and self-improvement, professional development is just as important now as it was then. With offices in 92 countries and programs available in more than 30 languages, we are a leader in the training industry and our franchise community continues to grow.
Here are three good reasons why you should consider investing in a Dale Carnegie franchise today.
According to Training Industry, the global training spend continues to increase year over year. LinkedIn has reported that 27% of companies they surveyed actually planned to spend more on learning and development in 2017.
The reason behind these numbers is quite simple: An organization is only as strong as the people behind it. What’s more, employee performance is directly related to its bottom-line. Companies with engaged employees actually outperform those without by up to 202%. Conversely, disengaged workers – who do not have a clear path to career advancement or professional development opportunities – are a central cause of employee turnover which costs billions.
For organizations to succeed in the modern business world, managers and executives must not only create a shared vision but must also lead the way with their own communication and people skills. With a Dale Carnegie franchise, you will be providing real solutions for one of the biggest problems facing companies today.
Per recruitment website Monster.com, “the World Economic Forum reported that by 2020, ‘social skills’ – such as, persuasion and emotional intelligence – will be in higher demand than technical skills.”
Many technical jobs may become automated over time, and as Dale Carnegie’s Jonathan Vehar put it in an interview with Newsday, “Everybody knows the same hard skills. Having good soft skills can be the differentiator.”
But many organizations find it difficult to teach these interpersonal skills – or they don’t try at all.
Dale Carnegie’s training specializes in the types of leadership, team, and communication skills that will continued to be desired by organizations large and small as workplaces, industry, and the world continue to change. A Dale Carnegie franchise answers this need in select markets all across the globe.
With over a century in practice, Dale Carnegie methods have been proven to be effective. The same can be said for our franchise operations which provide franchise partners with a blueprint for success, as well as support, training, and valuable resources all along the way.
For multi-brand investors specifically, a Dale Carnegie franchise offers the ability to own a profitable business without having to spend all your time in the day-to-day activities. This way you can add a best-in-class brand to your investment portfolio while staying focused on big-picture concepts like expansion and new territory development.
