Dale Carnegie believed in the power of self-improvement so much that he started a training company. Since founding the company, his dream has expanded to encompass more than 2,700 trainers stationed in over 85 countries. These trainers have pursued an unwavering mission: to give participants the skills they need to boost job performance and professional effectiveness. Online courses cover such topics as leadership training, sales success, and personal influence and effectiveness. All webinars, courses and materials are based on Dale Carnegie's time-honored approach, outlined in How to Win Friends and Influence People. Dale Carnegie now offers much of its information and many of its classes online.

Through one-on-one career counseling, job training, and transitional services, it shepherds veterans into the environmentally conscious economic sector, focusing on jobs in areas such as energy conservation, green construction, and sustainable agriculture.
For hikers, cairns are symbols of safety: the stone markers outline the right path. At Cairn Coaching, a life coach acts in much the same way. Instead of sifting through past experiences like a therapist, the life coach helps clients enjoy new ones—perhaps ones they thought were out of reach. The life coach customizes a plan for each client designed to meet their unique goals. These often involve attending a certain college, transitioning to a new career, or performing better as a leader or athlete.
