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!

Leadership - The Power of Accountability, Empowerment, and Ownership
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. 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!

Isn’t it time to learn how to change even your worst nightmare into your star performer (or send them to your competitor as a new hire?) Now there’s an idea!
The Power of Relationships and Communication
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. 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: Lead effectively. Increase sales. Maximize productivity. Attract customers. Work as a team. Enjoy life. Stay healthy. Be happy. And… Experience success.

Get ready for less stress and more success!
