If your team seems to be missing its usual spark, you’re certainly not alone. Let’s face it, this year has been an idea-stifling, rut-producing, stress-inducing ball of…well, you get the idea. And we’re still not out of the pandemic-fatigue woods yet.
To be fair, the slump is understandable. Many organizations have been scrambling for months—shifting to remote work locations, implementing convoluted technology workarounds, re-imagining how to do business in a pandemic, and redefining team dynamics. Employee stress levels are off-the-charts, especially if they are navigating all this change while trying to home-school their kids.
The good news? There’s something powerful you can do RIGHT NOW to turn the tide.
Give your team a much-needed boost of mental well-being! I’m not talking about time off or a yoga class. I’m suggesting a radically different virtual meeting that takes them by complete surprise. Something that’s so different, so unexpected, and so much FUN that it helps them shake off the pandemic funk and refocus on what’s important.
I know firsthand how that can be a game-changer. In recent months, I’ve been working with business leaders and companies to use this unique approach to both validate and reinvigorate their teams. I’ve created customized INTERACTIVE (no talking-head! Yay!) virtual sessions that deliver valuable SUBSTANCE (sales, leadership, customer service, adapting to change, etc.) blended with a healthy dose of humor, a shot of psychology to provide insight and self-awareness, and plenty of therapeutic motivation.
My style of motivation is NOT the rah-rah, quick-fix kind—it’s the face reality, take action and get results kind! Feedback? My clients are loving what they are describing as the most “non-virtual” virtual presentation out there. How cool is that? Reviews are reporting excellent results—renewed excitement, increased collaboration, improved morale, higher productivity and… a fresh surge of resiliency. The spark has returned. It’s about time!
If you want to help your team members get back on track and finish the year stronger than you ever imagined, then let’s give them the mental well-being, reality-based boost they really need. And deserve. Plus, some unexpected fun!

What Clients Are Saying:
“I just hosted an amazing Zoom event tonight with Connie Podesta, an incredible speaker, expert in the psychology of human behavior, and comedian. Not at all the “typical” virtual—hers was full of interaction, substance and… fun—the perfect blend! Her take on life with all the %#* this last year has thrown at us was refreshingly realistic and insightful. In a time when the entire world feels like it’s falling apart, Connie gave us exactly what we needed to break out of our 2020 funk so we can both survive and thrive in this crazy world.” – Meg, Mickey’s Dream Vacations
