Business as Usual? No way! Status quo? Move over? Change? Keep it Coming!

Simply "meeting expectations" doesn't cut it anymore. YOU and YOUR BRAND have to be so extraordinarily AWESOME, UNIQUE and VITAL that people will CHOOSE to do business with YOU instead of your competitor! Ready?

She will definitely bring out your edgy, creative, competitive side as she takes you inside the minds of today's savvy, but super-demanding global market and delivers some killer, powerhouse strategies that will help you increase sales, profits, good will and your customer base. Competition - watch out!

StandOut Influence... How To Get People On Board
The Power of Consensus and Negotiation to Increase Buy-In

Successful people are GREAT influencers. They know how to get consensus, ownership and buy-in from the people who count--without manipulation, intimidation, sacrificing relationships, or stepping on toes.

Bottom line: Getting the job done the right way hinges on your ability to "sell" yourself and your ideas in such a trusting and positive way that people will CHOOSE to: Follow your lead. Cooperate with you. Learn from you. Buy from you. Partner with you. And…support you so you can make things happen!

With a rare blend of laugh-out-loud humor, uncanny insight into human nature and killer persuasive strategies, Human Relations expert Connie Podesta, will take you right inside the minds of the people you need to influence and impress.

You will learn how to negotiate differences, influence behaviors, change attitudes, overcome objections, and close the deal so you can create an amazing network of PEOPLE who have one common goal: to willingly help you GET THE JOB DONE NOW!

StandOut Sales... Like You've Never Heard It Before!
The Power of Persuasion and Psychology to Increase Sales

Think you've heard everything there is to know about SALES? Then make way for some game-changing, money-making, customer-attracting ideas that will literally blow the roof off "sales done the old way."

Connie Podesta, an expert in the psychology of human behavior and sales strategies has helped millions of people take sales to a whole new level…and have more fun while getting there.

First step-- no more excuses. If you believe that PRICE, PRODUCT, MARKETING or TERRITORY are the main reasons for not closing the deal, think again. Customers tell a different story. Connie takes you right smack inside the mind of today's new breed of customer. Bargain-hunting. Demanding. Indecisive. Internet savvy. Overwhelmed with choices. And, very SELECTIVE about WHO they CHOOSE to do business with.

With her tell-it-like-it-is delivery and laugh-out-loud humor, Connie is ready to help you sell like never before so you can sit back and watch both your business and your bank account grow and GROW!

StandOut Leadership... Lead Like You Mean It!
The Power of Accountability and Ownership to Increase Performance

In a perfect world all employees would be: high achieving, self-motivated, engaging, team players who see the big picture and always strive to do their best to get the job done on time without complaining. Does that sound like the Twilight Zone?

Bottom Line: In the real world many employees: simply “meet expectations,” lack initiative, bring their personal life to work, stress over every change and whine about having to WORK….on the job! “Enough!” says Human Behavior and Leadership Development expert Connie Podesta, who has empowered thousands of leaders worldwide with the attitudes, mindsets and strategies necessary to create a team that’s willing, able and excited to get the job done THE RIGHT WAY!

With her signature blend of comedy and “tell-it-like-it-is” delivery, Connie takes you inside the minds of even your most difficult employees so you can turn negative attitudes into positive, entitlement into accountability, complacency into productivity, complaining into solutions and “that’s not my job” into ownership.

StandOut Relationships... Life Would Be Easy, If it Weren't for Other People
The Power of Personality and Communication to Increase Engagement

Difficult people? Move over! Crazy demands? Under control! Critical conversations? No problem!

Imagine what you could accomplish if you could decode the mystery of human behavior and truly understand what makes people do what they do and say what they say (including yourself!) Research shows that the #1 key to SUCCESS is the ability to get along with other people. At work and at home.

Bottom line: how you choose to relate to, communicate with, be accountable to, resolve conflict with and garner respect from other people will directly impact your ability to attract and sustain healthy relationships so you can lead, manage, sell, produce, collaborate, work as a team, enjoy life, stay healthy, be happy and...experience success.

With laugh-out-loud humor, killer take-away strategies and her amazing insights into ourselves and others (including a few who “drive you crazy”), Human Relations expert Connie Podesta will both challenge you and empower you with the knowledge you need to get along better with the people in your life. Connie will take you right inside the minds and personalities of the people you deal with every day--bosses, colleagues, partners, customers, friends, and family-- so YOU can ACT, rather than REACT to whatever life throws your way. Get ready for less stress and more success!
