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.

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!
