Dale Carnegie Training has put together a conference for chief executive officers (CEOs), senior leaders, human resources directors and managers.
According to the organisers, participants will gain insights on how to improve engagement, happiness and productivity in the workplace.
The conference with the theme: “Building the Workplace of Our Dreams”, is scheduled to hold at the Oriental Hotel, Lagos, between 10am and 2pm on October 3, 2019.
In a statement, Patrick Nwakogo, country director, Dale Carnegie Training, said the company is bringing its over 100 years’ experience in over 90 countries.
Nwakogo said the speakers and discussants, who were carefully selected “will share ideas on how to create work environments that enable people to unleash their full potential, stimulate growth and success for their organizations in particular and the economy in general.”
He added that “currently, only 20 percent of the workforce is unleashing its full potential while the rest are intentionally withholding their best efforts, doing just enough to retain their jobs”.
Nwakogo said Dale Carnegie works with organisations to build courage, confidence and compassion among their workforce by drawing out people’s natural strengths, so they can take command of their roles and inspire teamwork across the organisation.
He said the conference, which is designed to be an annual event, is part of activities to mark Dale Carnegie’s 6th year anniversary in Nigeria.
“It’s part of our contribution towards national development,” he said.
