I personally took the Dale Carnegie series of courses. I would have to say it improved my life greatly and would highly recommend it to anyone who truly wants to improve their life and make a difference in the world.
You see, I was rather shy, I would of rathered looked on the floor than look someone in the eye and of course I was too shy to speak up too! The course really helped me to improved on how to relate with people. If you spoke to me today face to face, you would not think that I was shy at all.
Back when I had just started a position where it meant that I had to speak to people, most often they couldn’t hear me because I was mumbling. My dad suggested that I take this course, as he said, “He had that same problem of being shy“. Certainly, he was a guy that I never thought he was a shy person.
I came across this mind map of how Dale Carnegie’s book can help you even today while you are establishing relationships online, so I thought I would share it with you.

There are many courses that one can take now to improve oneself, Dale Carnegie was my 1st experiential one.
I encourage you if you need help, because your are shy, or you just want to learn how to be a better speaker, I highly recommend their courses.
