Dale Carnegie for Teens is designed to prepare young people for the real world. It gives them the skills they need to reach their goals and live up to their full potential – in all areas of their busy lives.
Today, the world is more complex, competitive and demanding than ever before. Teens need to balance school, work, activities and relationships, while at the same time planning for their future. Dale Carnegie for Teens helps students become more confident and better able to cope with the pressure and stress adolescents face.
The course focuses on five key areas we believe are critical for success and balance in any person's life, regardless of age.
Self-confidence: As teens gain confidence, they become more social and out-going. It becomes easier to make friends. They begin to overcome fears and step outside their comfort zone. They are less intimidated by others and by circumstances in their life. They don’t shy away from opportunities…they go after them!
Communication Skills: Because of technology, teens are not accustomed to face-to-face communications with individuals and groups. Shaking hands, eye contact, speaking clearly and concisely, and public speaking have become uncomfortable for them. Yet, these are the very skills that will help them to move ahead in life! College interviews, job interviews, presentations, speeches - with fierce competition from their peers, they won’t get a second chance to make a powerful first impression.
Human Relations Skills: People interact with people everyday. As teenagers, it is important to start developing excellent people skills. How well you interact with others will determine how far you can go in life. Becoming a friendlier person, gaining someone’s cooperation, and influencing someone’s attitude and behavior, are skills we teach throughout the course. Students will discover how to develop stronger relationships, deal with difficult people, and improve their social skills.
Leadership: Who will become the leaders of tomorrow? The teenagers of today! To be a leader requires a specific skill set and the ability to inspire and motivate others. Good grades are not enough. Leaders are not born, they are developed and groomed to be responsible, to make good choices, to have initiative, and to follow through.
Manage Stress and Worry/Positive Attitude: Teens today are experiencing far more stress and anxiety than ever. Ineffective management skills can make stress overwhelming and cause teens to make poor decisions regarding coping mechanisms. Based on the principles in Dale Carnegie’s book, How to Stop Worrying and Start Living, students will learn how to handle stress in safe and effective ways. With their stress under control, they will develop a more positive attitude!
It consists of twelve 4 hour, highly interactive sessions. Today, the world is more complex, competitive and demanding than ever before. The Dale Carnegie Course can help teens become more confident and better able to cope with the pressure and stress adolescents face. At Dale Carnegie Training®, we call them "skills that will last a lifetime."
