Leadership Like You've Never Heard It Before

It’s time for a radically, mind-blowingly different take on Leadership. No, you haven’t heard it all... YET!

Let Connie Podesta provide you with a rare, inside-out view of business success by traveling non-stop to the intersection of leadership and psychology. You’ll explore the unique behaviors, winning attitudes, and tough mindsets adopted by the world’s most powerful executives.

With decades of experience as a leadership strategist, human behavior expert, Hall of Fame Speaker and award-winning author, Connie tells it like it is. What works. What doesn’t. Where the pitfalls lie, and where the opportunities are abundant. And how to be the StandOut leader others are genuinely clamoring to follow.

There’s no shortcut to this. If you’re a leader, you know the real effort involved. It takes knowledge and training. Compassion and creativity. It’s a roll-up-your-sleeves, dig-in, set-the-example, be-authentic process. It’s also the key to unlocking your team’s potential for greatness. Investing energy in learning how to realize your full potential as a leader holds the promise of a huge pay-off. It’s game-changing, revenue-building, and convention-defying – not just for you, but for your customers, employees, colleagues, and your organization. Get ready to lead like you’ve never lead before – it all starts right here!

StandOut Change--Like You've Never Heard It Before!

If the last few years have taught us one thing – it’s that ANYTHING can happen. At any time.  To anyone.  Anywhere. That requires us all to be both willing and able to handle CHANGE quickly, professionally and successfully!  Often, without all the facts or even a finalized plan.   And, definitely without complaining or procrastinating. Whew! But wait, there's more!  If we aren't up to the task of changing under those circumstances, there's always someone else who will!  Ugh! So... let's figure this out right now.

With a fascinating, engaging, (and very funny) look at why each of us approaches change differently, Human Behavior and Change Expert Connie Podesta will teach you some killer strategies and intriguing new mindsets so you can successfully handle new ways of doing business. So, if you find yourself navigating the unexpected (and often confusing) chaos of change – then join Connie and walk away with a lifeline--both physical and mental -- for proactively leveraging change without going crazy in the process. You've got this!

Thank you so much – please feel free to contact me or Connie with any questions you may have!  I hope we can do business together soon!

StandOut Communication...Life Would Be Easy If It Weren't For Other People

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 in any industry or organization is the ability to get along with other people, personally and professionally. Now that's something to really think about, right? That means with a deeper understanding of human behavior you could lead better.  Communicate better.  Sell better. Parent better. Live better.  Negotiate better. The list goes on and on.

With laugh-out-loud humor, killer take-away strategies, powerful pops of psychology and her amazing insights into others (including a few who "drive you crazy").  Connie Podesta, an Expert in the Psychology of Human Behavior, will take you right inside the minds and personalities of the people you connect with every day both at work and home — bosses, colleagues, partners, customers, significant others, friends, and family -- so YOU can ACT, rather than REACT to whatever situations or people throw your way.  In other words, you'll be able to read between the lines – making navigating conversations and negotiating your needs a thousand times easier. Want the secret communication insights and rare psychological know-how to build, maintain and grow your relationships and business to a who

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!
