The Sam Iorio Dale Carnegie Course for Eagle Scouts of Minsi Trails Council 

Minsi Trails Council Eagle Scouts,

Through a generous donor, we are excited to bring this world-famous leadership development opportunity to Minsi Trails Scouts who have achieved the Eagle Scout Rank and "soon to be" Eagle Scouts. 

Your personality, behaviors and beliefs are what make you you, but they can also play a role in holding you back, especially when fear and uncertainty get the best of you. At Dale Carnegie, we help you see yourself in a whole new light, building courage and confidence as we polish the unique strengths that help you achieve more in every part of your life.

Today, the world is more complex, competitive, and demanding than ever before.  You often need to balance school, work, and relationships while at the same time, working and planning for your future.

The Dale Carnegie Course® will help you to improve your human relations skills. You'll develop more effective communication skills and be better equipped to perform as a persuasive communicator, problem-solver, and focused leader. What's more, you develop a take-charge attitude to initiate with confidence and enthusiasm and better able to cope with the pressure and stress you face today.

Five Key areas that are critical for future success:

  • Building Self-Confidence
  • Enhancing Communication Skills
  • Interpersonal Skill Development
  • Teamwork and Leadership Skills
  • Effective Attitude Management
