Dale Carnegie (1888-1955) was an American writer and lecturer who famously developed courses in self-improvement and interpersonal skills. One of his core philosophies was that it can be possible to change other people’s behavior by changing one’s behavior toward them. How to Win Friends and Influence People, originally published in 1936, was an instant bestseller that remains popular with readers today.
