dale carnegie workshopWorkshop Planned – How Smart Leaders Create Engaged Employees
Consider this quote: “Throughout my career, I’ve found that the leaders that I trusted the most and whom I felt trusted me the most were those that communicated up, down and across the organi-zation; who actively solicited feedback and pro-vided it in a non-judgmental way; who were visi-ble, accessible and approachable; who were the best of role models; who ‘knew’ their employees; and who had a sense of humor – in short, they were ‘human.’” ~ Anonymous.

On August 27th  from 8:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. there will be a workshop hosted at the Clay County Regional Events Center aimed at how to engage your employees and create a favorable work environment. To register for the workshop or to receive additional information you can contact Brooke Mass at brooke.maass@dalecarnegie.com
