The Legacy Project profiles leaders from around the world to discover what makes them so successful. Naturally, Cursive’s Director, Jessica Green, was the perfect person to interview.
Jessica discusses what lessons she has learned throughout the years, how she deals with doubt and the resources she uses to hone her craft.
Our favourite quote is what Jessica describes as being her key talent:
“Confidence. Having experienced attempts at age-related intimidation in the workplace first-hand, I’ve learned that cowering only makes you complicit in the cycle. The most effective form of retaliation is outperformance, which is fuelled by none other than self-assurance.
While biases still exist, we’ve come a long way in terms of achieving equal outcomes for all people in the professional space. I’ve come to realize that “contemporary” barriers – like guilt and rampant insecurity about kicking ass – are self-imposed. If you’re willing to rock the boat, you deserve to get a turn driving it.”
