Robin is an accomplished motivator with a solid reputation for providing vision, creating company cohesion, and a positive environment. As an Entrepreneur,Speaker, Past President of Crisis Support Services of Nevada, Certified Parent Educator with the Positive Discipline Association, and most importantly a wife and mother of 3 teenagers, Robin has the tools and knowledge to educate, empower and support others to attain their goals.

WHAT IS EMBRACE THE PATH?

Embrace the PATH stems from Robin’s personal journey to seek her truest and best self. After 20 years of growing her company from a small local business into a successful, nationally recognized brand - Robin found herself mentally broken, close to divorce, never around her children, and depressed. After hitting her “rock-bottom” and realizing that business success means very little, if you have no family, no emotional balance and no happiness - she forced herself to climb out of her hole, and into a place where she now inspires and teaches others how to embrace imperfection, practice stress management and learn techniques to help communication conflicts. As a speaker and educator, Robin provides others with the vision & tools to re-brand their life by conquering their fears and discovering personal growth.

WHY SHE CHOOSES TO PARENT WITH POSITIVE DISCIPLINE

After being asked to teach mandated parenting classes, Robin decided to become certified through the Positive Discipline Association. It was during these classes that she learned a new take on how to parent more effectively. She quickly realized that if she talked to her work team, the way she talked to her kids…she would have no employee’s, because they all would quit! “I never yelled at my work team, I never nagged them when I wanted to see them improve or do something different… instead, I would coach them on how to do their job more effectively. For some crazy reason, when it came to my kids, there was ALOT of yelling, nagging, and punishment. It was a HUGE realization to recognize how different my parenting skills were from my skills as the Chief People Officer at my national company. When I recognized how negatively my husband and I we’re reacting to our kids, it was an “ah ha” moment that changes in our parenting style needed to happen! Parenting with Positive Discipline has been a game changer in our household!” Robin Brockelsby.

“Where did we ever get the crazy idea that in order to make children DO BETTER, first we have to make them FEEL WORSE?”, Jane Nelsen, Ed.D

Positive Discipline Parents are dedicated to embracing the parenting PATH with kindness and firmness. Kindness shows up in the way we interact with our children by honoring their dignity and respecting their (and our) needs. Firmness is when we as parents respect ourselves and the needs of the situation.

***

When Robin is not at the office, you’ll find her embracing every second of life…be it giving back to the community, driving her kids to their activities, adventuring with her husband of 17 years, pursuing her passion in fitness, and always searching for new activities outside her comfort zone.
