Dale Carnegie of Orange County | Improving Leadership Effectiveness

Global Day of Giving

For over 100 years, Dale Carnegie has supported communities to transform the lives and career potential of people through human relationship skill-building. For the past five years, we have celebrated our Founder’s Day by enhancing our community and introducing Dale Carnegie’s timeless principles.

Format & Objectives
This year for our Global Day of Giving and in honor of the National Hispanic Heritage month, Dale Carnegie of Orange County has partnered with The i-5 Freedom Network, an anti-human trafficking non-profit organization, through creating a sustainment program to help their Spanish speaking survivors. These survivors have already benefited from the customized Dale Carnegie programs and this program will continue to develop their skills to enhance their employment opportunities.

Our half-day event will be held on October 23, 2021, to honor our founder, Mr. Carnegie.

The i-5 Freedom Network has created a pathway to employment empowering survivors with a series of Dale Carnegie courses that focus on developing self-confidence, communications, and leadership skills with the unique challenges and realities of survivors. i5 Freedom Network focuses on helping survivors by providing survivors assistance that enables them to build a better life for not only themselves but their families. During the 2020-2021 timeframe alone, these programs have impacted the lives of 179 survivors and service support providers.

“I still cannot believe it. Thanks to this program I learned to establish a dialogue with my son and how to convince him, through the use of empathy and cushions, to obtain his approval to refinance our home. Finally, we have secured the wealth that we have been working for during so many years.”
– Dolores Jáuregui

“For about 7 years I had low self-confidence and lack of enthusiasm. Today, I have found a place where they help survivors of Human Trafficking. I am very grateful … the tools that I learned helped me to develop empathy and better communicate with others. Through the use of cushions, I have been able to move forward, continue with my projects and I have obtained smiles and hugs. I feel very privileged. Thank you!
-Miguel Castro

My name is Yadielh Pacheco, I have been taking these courses twice, as a participant and Graduate Assistant. I used to be afraid to speak in front of people as I was facing difficulties in my life. I was limiting myself.
I learned principle seven, be a good listener. I first applied it to myself, to listen to my needs, and then I learned to listen to others. When we listen to others we make them feel better. I feel honored and happy to have participated in this course. Thank you!

I am standing here where I was 2 years ago, but in a different way…I didn’t know who I was, I didn’t have projects and I found an incredible capacity to give love.
Thanks to “The Golden Book” I learned to Not Criticize Condemn or Complain and my life changed because I practiced that principle… I became empathetic with others’ suffering. I learned that we do not need to live in the darkness, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you!”
