Keynote Topics

 Life Would Be Easy If It Weren’t For Other People

The Power of Personality and Communication to Increase Engagement

Life continues to shift in ways we never imagined. People working remotely, virtual meetings taking over, families bridging gaps on zoom… Communication skills have NEVER been more important than now! At work and at home.

Connie is your go-to guru for understanding just exactly how this people puzzle works so you can get your message across whether live or from a screen.

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, personally and professionally.

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 future. 

Most importantly, those skills will determine your ability to attract and sustain healthy relationships. And that is the key to a lifetime of success as you lead, manage, sell, produce, collaborate, work as a team, interact with friends and family, and strive to excel as a human being on this planet.

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 everyday — 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!
