Connie Podesta Wins Gold Medal Award With 10 Ways to Stand Out From the Crowd

Top organizations seek real-world answers and strategic solutions to stay competitive in a constantly changing market. They're finding all of that and more in Connie Podesta's new book, 10 Ways to Stand Out From the Crowd. And the folks at Independent Publisher Book Awards agree.

Dallas, TX, May 18, 2011 (Straight Line PR) -- Connie Podesta and co-author Jean Gatz proudly announce the selection of their new book, 10 Ways to Stand Out From the Crowd as the 2011 Independent Publisher Book Awards Gold Medal Award winner in the Business Category.

"It's a thrill to be chosen from among the more than 2000 participants for this prestigious award," says author, keynote speaker and change expert Connie Podesta. "We wanted to create a book that was different from any other business book we've seen. Something that would compel people to make positive changes in their lives, careers and companies."

Connie Podesta ( ) has helped organizations globally implement the kind of innovative and effective strategies, tools and mindsets that allow their companies to grow. She teaches them to do that in such a way that their employees and partners become happy contributors and pro-active solution-seekers.

"Connie and Jean have hit a home run with a book that lives up to its name and stands out from the crowd. From the very first page, I knew I was about to experience a wealth of content wrapped in the kind of creativity you rarely see in a business book," says Diane Koziol Krueger, brand identity expert, CEO and Founder of Contagious, LLC.

10 Ways to Stand Out From the Crowd ( ) takes the most critical elements of success - change, leadership, relationships and attitudes. Then breaks them down into ten individual books rolled into one. Written in an easy-to-read, easy-to-reference style, there is no mistaking why the straight-forward communication and spotlighted (not-to-mention Tweet-ready!) "pearls" of wisdom are a success formula for leaders, executives and entrepreneurs. They're also powerful for anyone who wishes to STAND OUT from the crowd. It provides people with the skills to live more fully and create more of that all-too-elusive balance between personal, professional and family life.

"I often say 'Business as usual is OVER', because our world is changing and evolving so fast that those who want to compete, perform better, produce more and sustain far better relationships in their lives have got to start doing some things differently," shares Connie. "Waiting for 'someday' or 'one of these days' is simply not an option anymore. That's why we wrote a book that really helps people turn on those light bulbs in their minds. They begin to not just SEE that change is possible, but BELIEVE it and then ACT in the ways it takes to make those changes a reality."

For anyone who's ever asked themselves...

* Do I have the skills, talent, attitude, knowledge and commitment ENOUGH to make it in today's competitive world?

* Am I making the right CHOICES for myself, my career and my family?

* Am I COMMUNICATING well or just making noise?

* Am I doing what it takes to DIFFERENTIATE myself in a such a positive way that my employers, co-workers, partners, family and friends CHOOSE to have me in their lives?

* How can I handle the DIFFICULT people in my life that make work and home so challenging?

* What can I do DIFFERENTLY that will help me attract the success, people and wealth I want?

10 Ways to Stand Out From the Crowd ( ) delivers fresh ideas, laugh-out-loud 'light bulb' moments, and real-life strategies that will not only have readers STANDING OUT in a positive way, but enjoying more of the moments along the way.
