StandOut Sales... Like You've Never Heard It Before!

“Sales” looks, sounds and feels very different today.  Why?  Because today's customers and clients are really good at recognizing, resisting and retreating when they are being "manipulated”, “techniqued”, or caught up in a canned script loop they can’t get out of. And frankly, most sales professionals don’t want to play that game anymore either!  Yay!  Enter Connie Podesta, an expert in sales and negotiation, who uses laugh-out-loud humor, a pop of psychology, and her engaging, interactive delivery style to take you deep inside the minds of the unique customers you are negotiating with today. But... no way is that enough. She also demonstrates how you, the salesperson, can use these powerful rarely-shared insights to make the entire sales process a better experience for everyone. How cool is that! So? Are you interested in increased financial success?  Eager to have happier, more satisfied customers? Waiting for an influx of new, potential buyers wanting to do business with... YOU?  Then don't miss this session--it's just what you've been waiting for...and much, much more!

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!

StandOut from the Crowd... Out-Perform, Out-Think, Out-Lead, and Out-Sell the Competition

The Power of Performance and Innovation to Increase Competitive Edge

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

Bottom line: Your future success depends on your ability to OUT-SHINE past performance, OUT-THINK old ideas and OUT-MANEUVER anyone who says it can't be done. 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?

Meet Human Relations expert Connie Podesta who is both refreshingly candid and wonderfully entertaining. 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!
