Understanding What Makes People Tick is #1 Key to Success
by Motivational Keynote Speaker Connie Podesta
So here’s what I hear all the time in the phone from potential clients, “To be honest Connie, I don’t get it! Why does my audience need an expert in psychology? We’re going through a lot of (Fill in the blank: Stress. Change. Upheaval. Downsizing. New leadership. Etc. etc.) We need a speaker who can increase our: (Fill in the blank: Sales. Profits. Market Share. Productivity. Leadership. Etc. etc.) Just how can psychology help all that?”
My response? “I don’t get it either. How can your organization ever accomplish anything? Sell anything? Lead anyone? Change anything? Update anything? Negotiate anything? Teach anything? Improve anything WITHOUT an understanding of the psychology of human relations and behavior? Those things that make people do what they do? Say what they day? React the way they react? Think the way they think? Behave the way they behave?”
I’ve been teaching, coaching, speaking to, consulting with, and listening to more than two million people worldwide for more than 30 years. And I know this for a fact: What stresses people out the very most is what organizations train and teach the very least and that is how to successfully navigate, mediate and communicate with the people whose buy in, support, ownership and consensus they desperately need to get the job done right!
It’s all about PEOPLE. I’ve been helping people understand people most of my life. Why? Because without a really thorough understanding of human nature and behavior people will NOT be able to lead successfully. Close more deals. Produce more. Work as a productive team. Collaborate. Innovate. Increase profits. Rev up performance. Get rid of negative attitudes. And enjoy life the way they should!
Successful organizations get it! You can see it in their conference programs. A different breed of speaker is showing up in the midst of industry experts. Speakers like me. Who want to dig deeper. Who want to teach more than just the latest trend or newest product. Or create another round of quarterly goals. Speakers like me who want your team to UNDERSTAND how every word they say, move the make, attitude they express, look they give, and objection they raise has a consequence. People watch us. Listen to us. And are impacted by us. So how we engage, interact, and work with them is crucial to our success level and the relationships we build.
