The Five Practices Of Highly Resilient People: Why Some Flourish When Others Fold

What are the attributes that determine whether a leader, team, or organization will flourish or fold?

After conducting two decades of research to understand how people effectively face challenge, in leadership and life, resilience has emerged as the key differentiator that sustains people in moments of difficulty, ambiguity, and adversity.

At a time when we’re all facing extensive and unprecedented challenge, change, and complexity (The 3 C’s), harnessing let alone, enhancing resilience has never been more important. World renowned resilience expert and Nike’s former head of executive development and talent strategy, Dr. Taryn Marie Stejskal shares The Five Practices of Highly Resilient People — the critical behaviors and practices, available to all of us, that have been shown to dramatically increase our resilience and create a profoundly more positive and productive outcome, given that challenge is part of the fabric of our lives.

Resilience is the essence of being human, a skillset we all possess. Yet what it means to be truly resilient has been largely misunderstood. Dr. Taryn Marie inspires and engages audiences with a practical, tangible, sometimes hilarious, and relevant approach to understanding and amplifying resilience, the difference between flourishing and folding.

As a result of this program, we learned:

  • The Five Practices of Highly Resilient People, the habits empirically shown to determine why some flourish after facing challenge and others fold
  • The Three Myths that block out ability to identify and access our resilience • Increase resilience and reduce stress, exhaustion, and burnout
  • How to build our own Resilience Toolkit focused on a series of practical skills and habits that that increase wellbeing during times of anxiety and burnout
  • How to recognize the power of vulnerability in cultivating resilience as well as authentic and empathetic leadership
