Norman Nohara
General Manager at Hawaiian Sign and Design

"The Dale Carnegie Course has changed my life. I am more positive and look at all situations, especially difficult ones, as a challenge to get the most positive results."

When Norman came to session one of his first Dale Carnegie Course, he wasn’t too sure what he was getting into, and was uneasy of the prospect of sitting through an  8 week training course. But after experiencing an interactive and high energy first session, he became excited about the opportunity to grow and learn in the Dale Carnegie Course. Unlike other training experiences, the Trainers at Dale Carnegie Training Hawaii focused on each participant as individuals and tailored their coaching to help them.  This approach helped Norman realize that he has the potential to reach his goals, and that by pushing himself out of his comfort zone and practicing the Dale Carnegie principles he could realize his vision.

Norman just completed his third coaching assignment of the Dale Carnegie Course, where he continues to practice and perfect the skills he learned in his first course.  Norman has also decided that he wants to have the same kind of impact on others, so he has begun rigorous training to become a Dale Carnegie trainer himself. 

In the workplace, Norman uses the principles to strengthen relationships with the field crew and office administration at Hawaiian Sign and Design.  Refined people skills enable him to promote and encourage teamwork among his employees. In addition to making teamwork a priority, he has also reduced his stress by changing how he approaches demanding situations. Now when faced with difficult situations, he takes a step back to get all the facts, weight them, and approach the task with the most positive outcome. 

We look forward to see Norman continue to grow as a Dale Carnegie coach, and one day, as a trainer.
