As we move into 2021 with hope, 2020 will be remembered as a year that demanded new skills in adaptability and resilience. For the year ahead, these skills will also shape how we bring out the best in people and create stronger and healthier neighborhoods and communities. Join renowned speaker, trainer and consultant, Robin Rose as she leads this workshop focused on how to stay calm, centered, effective and more resilient — especially during high-stress times. 

Robin brings 30 years of experience exploring the frontiers of leadership and neuroscience. She has unconditional regard for human beings and the stress that they can encounter. With a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology, Robin teaches a rare and scientific approach that teaches people how their brain works, so that they can think, act and communicate at their highest proficiency.  

Whether it is stress in the workplace, managing remote learning for children, adapting to a virtual world or maintaining human connections, Robin will help us to understand our emotional responses and to manage through stress to be our best selves. This evening will educate, entertain and motivate, and participants will come away with practical tools to use right away.

In addition to Robin’s keynote message, participants will interact in small breakout rooms where they are encouraged to learn from one another and share stories of community resilience.

The Neighborhood Leadership Gathering is a semi-annual gathering of residents who come together to share and learn from each other. Anyone that is invested in the health and quality of life in their Bellevue neighborhood is welcome.
