Keynote Speaker for Annual Meeting - Steve Gross is the Founder and the Chief Playmaker, Life is Good Kids FoundationHe is a pioneer in utilizing playful engagement and meaningful relationships to overcome the devastating impact of trauma. In his inspiring and high energy presentation he teaches us how we can grow the good in ourselves, the world and those around us, while sharing how optimistic leaders and care providers bring out the best in people and organizations - especially in challenging, change-filled times.The Power of Optimism
Optimism is powerful. When children grow to see the good in themselves, the good in others and the good in their world - their social, emotional, cognitive and psychological superpowers emerge. However, for the seeds of optimism to take root, they must be nurtured. Sadly, in toxically stressful environments filled with poverty, violence and illness, the seeds of optimism are weakened and often die.
Steve’s inspiring and high energy presentation teaches us how to access our own superpowers so that we can build joyful, loving, empowering and engaging environments for children to heal, grow and thrive. By presenting research and first hand lessons from the field, Steve will share how optimistic leaders and care providers bring out the best in people and organizations - especially in challenging, change-filled times.Steve Gross, M.S.W., is the Founder and Chief Playmaker of the Life is Good Kids Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit that partners with leading childcare organizations to positively impact the quality of care delivered to the most vulnerable children. Steve is a pioneer in utilizing playful engagement and meaningful relationships to overcome the devastating impact of early childhood trauma.
Steve’s talents have been called upon to respond to some of the greatest catastrophes of our time, including the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina, earthquakes in Haiti and Japan, and the 2012 Newtown school shooting. At the heart of his work, Steve helps others discover the power of optimism so that they can build resilience and bring greater joy, connection, courage and creativity to their lives.
