Jylla Tearte has reinvented herself at least three times since she obtained her MBA in 1978 from Indiana University-Bloomington.
Her first career was at IBM, where she became a vice president responsible for global channels; her second, an entrepreneur as CEO of Crystal Stairs, Inc., where she provides executive coaching and publishes books; and now, she is at it again as COO of the Tearte Family Foundation.
This progression of leadership and engagement has become the subject of her scholar-practitioner life that fuels her passion, Encore Leadership.
She leads by example as she encourages other individuals who have achieved various levels of success to focus on leaving a legacy that matters. For her, The Consortium stands out as an organization that changed the arc of her life.
Now, she wants to provide the Consortium opportunity to other potential fellows while encouraging other “Encore Leaders” to give back, so that The Consortium can continue to matter.
