033: Mastering the Five Practices of Resilience with Dr. Taryn Marie Stejskal

As leaders, it’s important that we’re able to nurture our own resilience so we can withstand whatever challenges that come our way. How do we become resilient then?

In today’s episode, Dr. Taryn Marie Stejskal, the Chief Resilience Officer at Resilience Leadership Institute, talks about how we can all tap into our own resilience, which is something we don’t find outside of ourselves. Resilience is the essence of what it means to be human. It’s something ingrained in the fabric of humanity and our shared human experiences defined by challenge, change, and complexity.

Dr. Taryn Marie Stejskal is an executive coach, a keynote speaker, an author, a mom, an athlete, an international traveler, and a philanthropist. Taryn helps people recognize their worth and value, believe in themselves, appreciate their inherent strengths, recognize their skills and talent, and teach them to be more resilient so they can reach their full potential.

Taryn met resilience at 14 years old in her own childhood bedroom when she had a terrifying experience with a stalker. In her early 20s, she met all of the diagnostic criteria for post-traumatic stress disorder. It was a two-decade journey of healing from trauma and betrayal of her safety. Taking that experience and the knowledge she gained over the years, Taryn is now sharing that message of resilience with the world. 

In this episode, you will hear:

  • Planning vs. preparing for success
  • The essence of resilience
  • How you don’t find resilience because it finds you
  • The concept of resilience leadership
  • Taking difficult experiences and turning them into something positive
  • The five practices of resilience
