Dale Carnegie Course Review – Session 9

Week nine of the Carnegie course focused on demonstrating leadership and developing flexibility.  In the first half of the lesson, we each gave a talk about how we’ve practiced leadership at work.  We practiced employing the persuasion template – ‘There I was…’, ‘If you will…’, ‘The benefit will be…’ that we learned in lesson four.

The second half of the session was fun.  We took turns performing very silly mini-skits.  The goal was to force us to break out of our comfort zones.  Some of the skits were Jack and the Beanstalk, Tarzan, a coach giving a pep talk, reciting tongue twisters, and an inept traffic cop.  The point of this was lowering self consciousness by acting silly in front of others who were also acting silly.
