On April 17, AmCham Denmark members gathered at the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel for an executive leadership session on ‘How to Increase Competitiveness in a Global Marketplace’ with Dale Carnegie Training’s CEO Peter Handal.

The event was sponsored by Dale Carnegie Training, one of AmCham’s newest members. Participants enjoyed a breakfast buffet and networking before listened attentively to Mr. Handal's presentation.

“Change is constant in the world today, and companies need to be quick to adapt to change,” he said. A critical success factor for better performance is a culture ready for the necessary changes. Change drives innovation, and innovation is what makes us competitive.

All companies are essentially a conglomerate of employees. Employees are a company’s number one asset. But how do we motivate our employees to adapt to change and to create and innovate?

The Dale Carnegie method advocates leadership with a soft hand-by letting employees know that they are valuable, and inspiring and motivating them to take risks, and think outside the box. 'We cannot be afraid of failure,' he adds that without failure, we have not tried anything new.
