While success is measured using different yardsticks, growth remains the most potent factor in deciphering one’s trajectory. Growth and success are relative and vary from person to person. Whether you’re an entrepreneur, business leader, or brand, what matters most is the lessons that you learn along the road to success. Dr. Taryn Marie Stejskal’s journey is an excellent example of how she allowed her experiences to enrich her. She remained resilient in the face of adversity and became widely successful in multiple ways.
Dr. Taryn Marie Stejskal was born on December 27th, 1978, in Michigan, USA, and is a leading executive coach, author, and speaker. Dr. Taryn is the former Head of Executive Leadership Development at Nike and Global Leadership Development at Cigna.

Eventually, Dr. Taryn founded her company “Resilience Leadership,” where she serves as the Chief Resilience Officer (CRO).
