Think about the last time you faced a major life challenge. What did you do to effectively navigate through that adversity?
This was the question at the forefront of the research that Dr. Taryn Marie conducted on resilience that led her to discover the five practices of resilient people. These are the real-time actions resilient people take to effectively face adversity.
Dr. Taryn Marie is a foremost international expert on resilience, in both leadership and life. She is the former Head of Executive Leadership Development at Nike, Global Leadership Development at Cigna, and founded Resilience Leadership, where she serves as the Chief Resilience Officer (CRO), leveraging over a decade of research on resilience, that gave birth to the empirically-based framework that became the foundation for her book "Flourish or Fold: The 5 Practices of Particularly Resilient People."
In this conversation, Taryn offers her unique definition of resilience, we cover the five practices, and we talk about neuroplasticity. Taryn also weaves in a central theme of exploring the nuance of paradoxes like the paradox of control and surrender, or universality and uniqueness.
