The NYU SPS Division of Programs in Business (DPB) hosted an Industry Connection Series (ICS) webinar featuring Dr. Taryn Marie Stejskal on November 9th, 2020. Dr. Stejskal is an international expert on resilience, the founder of Resilience Leadership, and formerly the Head of Executive Leadership Development and Talent Strategy at Nike, as well as Global Leadership Development at Cigna.
The presentation began with an interactive discussion on the meaning of the word “resilience,” which Dr. Stejskal defined in simplest terms as allowing challenge to enhance us, rather than diminish us. She discussed the importance of resilience in this particular moment of human evolution, debunked common misconceptions of the term, and shared strategies for developing this skill set, using her empirically based framework, “The Five Practices of Particularly Resilient People.” To learn more, graphic notes of the webinar can be found below.
Dr. Stejskal is the author of “Flourish or Fold: The Five Practices of Particularly Resilient People” and is featured in the forthcoming documentary “Breaking Free”, both expected to release in 2021. She is a sought-after coach for executives, athletes, musicians, and actors who are looking for an edge by way of understanding and harnessing their inherent resilience. Dr. Stejskal is a Co-Founder of Resilience Element 75 (RE75), focused on making resilience accessible across the world through film and wearable technology as well as serving as a Marshall Goldsmith Top 100 Coach (MG100) globally. Her groundbreaking research on resilience has been showcased in publications such as Forbes, Ariana Huffington’s Thrive Global, Ladders, LA Progressive, and Welum Magazine’s Women Who Inspire Worldwide, on television broadcasts, and featured online by Happify, eMindful, and Powerful Universe.
Now in its fourth year, the Industry Connection Series has garnered a growing audience for innovative topics such as "VisuaLeadership," "The Performance Management Revolution," and "Design Thinking & Understanding Your Customer."
