Times have changed, but one thing does remain the same: how you should treat people.
In “How to Win Friends and Influence People,” published in 1936, Dale Carnegie shares tried-and-true lessons from his years of extremely successful leadership. These lessons aren’t focused on stealing power or schmoozing prospects. Instead, Carnegie found that to become more powerful and win at business, you have to treat people with nothing less than kindness. Here’s how.
