Joseph Price first entered the training and development field in 1982 as a training consultant for Dale Carnegie Training®. What started as a desire to sell training programs quickly grew into a passion for the understanding and growth of human potential. Joe, and his management, quickly realized that his skills, talents and gifts lie in instructing and facilitating rather than selling. Joe’s background in the clergy and volunteer organizations prepared him well for this new endeavor of motivating and teaching personal and professional development. Within 3 years, Joe was certified to teach 5 of the 9 courses offered through Dale Carnegie Training® and through teaching and repeat classes attained the distinction of being the 12th highest producers of Dale Carnegie® enrollments in the world—which he maintained for 6 consecutive years.
After attaining the level of Senior Sales Consultant and Senior Instructor, Joe turned his passion and skills to management by becoming a General Manager of a Dale Carnegie Training® sponsorship and it’s Manager of Instruction. Along with his experience and success as the Land Sales Manager for a Washington DC based commercial real-estate company, Joe used his class and project management skills to lead the sales and instruction team to exceed its goals and double the DCT sponsorship’s annual revenue within 1 ½ years. During his tenure as Director of Instructor, Mr. Price taught and coached other Dale Carnegie® instructors on the use of highly-interactive training techniques and processes to ensure the transference of the training material into practical, usable skills. His own training style is based on the adult learning philosophy of “discovery.” Joe explains that “each participant must discover for themselves the relevance and usefulness of the training material covered in order for them to internalize it and make it their own—which turns it into a permanent part of their behavior.”
