Develop your interpersonal skills and start using time-proven strategies to grow your network and improve existing connections in the digital age.
Believe it or not, 1936 is still relevant today, with plenty for us to learn
Indeed a book written more than 80 years ago holds no relevance in the modern-day? Surely our lives have moved on; surely we’re far more digitally-minded than those days? Well, yes, but regardless of technological advancements, it seems the human mind is still stuck in the ’30s in so many ways!
Dale Carnegie spoke sense, and he told the truth — “dealing with people is probably the biggest problem you face.” True even today! By understanding the art of communication in a way that goes far beyond simply speaking words, you’ll create opportunities for huge success throughout your life.
Learning to deal with people in the right way will open up your future potential in life, business, and relationships.
Learning to communicate in the right way, connecting with people at their most profound inner core, and using all of this in line with digital methods is your aim. These days the stakes are probably higher than they have ever been before. Digital methods mean that we can easily make a mistake, and it’s communicated across the globe virally, within seconds. Businesses, relationships, friendships, connections can all be broken with just the touch of a “send” button. By listening to the words that Dale Carnegie imparted upon us, you’ll see that 1936 is still very relevant, even today.

Be careful of what you type and what you say
Social media is a blessing in many ways but a curse in so many others. It brings you closer to more people than you could ever have imagined but takes you away from those sitting right next to you. It can also be a make or break in terms of business and relationships. Take Ryan Babel, the Dutch footballer, as a good example. Feeling rather annoyed after his team, Liverpool, lost to Manchester United, he took to his Twitter account to vent his frustrations, calling out the referee’s ability. The result? He was fined around $16,000.
