    Interpersonal Competence: Connect with Others

    Presented by Sheryl Crawford


    In this module, you will explore the impact on your professional development when you apply Dale Carnegie’s principles for building trust and rapport. These nine principles form the basis for establishing respectful and understanding professional relationships.

    Trust is the foundation of all successful professional relationships. When you trust your colleagues, you have rapport, you are more productive, and you experience a greater degree of job satisfaction.

    Most of you work in settings where your managers have high expectations of you, and where your organizations require that you do more, better, faster, with less. The best way to meet those challenges is by creating strong teams, supportive relationships, and a cooperative work environment. By beginning with establishing trust and rapport, you can develop relationships that will enable you to meet your career goals.


    At the completion of this module, participants will be able to:

    • Change their approach to gain different results

    • Apply principles for building trust and rapport in relationships
