Do it Best employees complete leadership program


The Woodburn Do it Best service center recently graduated 18 employees from the nationally recognized Dale Carnegie Leadership training program.

These employees range from supervisors, leads and regular employees.

The eight-week course covered a variety of subject matters, including public speaking, listening skills and carrying on conversations. The Dale Carnegie book “How to Win Friends and Influence People” is one of the best-selling books of all time. The Dale Carnegie classes inspire great leaders who are individuals who are passionate about and confident in the work they do. They inspire others to do so in the process. Dale Carnegie’s Leadership Training vision extends from corporate training and team building, to improving the leadership qualities within each individual. Their leadership training courses are not one-size-fits-all approach, as they work with individuals and the individual companies to provide custom training.

Do it Best’s Woodburn Service Center employs 95 employees and opened its Woodburn center in 1991. Do it Best Corp. averages around $2 billion in sales annually. The Woodburn facility supplies hardware to members of their co-op in the Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana and Northern California areas.
