We’re off to a great start this season, with continued excellence in programs and speaker expertise. On September 14, our Austin members had the opportunity to benefit from the knowledge and expertise of Dave Wright, CEO for Dale Carnegie Training in both Austin and Houston.  A dynamic speaker and entrepreneur, Dave Wright - Dale Carnegie.jpgDave has received ongoing international recognition as a premier trainer.  Drawing from more than 25 years of experience, he provided plenty of advice as he delivered an informative program on The Art Of Leadership.

In addition to emphasizing that the biggest driver in employee engagement is company pride, Dave stated that the most effective leaders oversee more than just people.  They manage organizational goals, visions, metrics,  and outcomes.   He also stressed the importance of communication, attitude control, stress reduction, presentation skills, and positive thinking.   And, just as important, he observed that the best leadership stems from great listeners who are genuine and confident with their peers and colleagues.
