Jess Pettitt is an author and keynote speaker. She believes to thrive in this world you have to ride two horses at once: one of humility and one of ego. This is why, while hosting and performing stand-up in NYC, she also worked as a diversity and inclusion specialist.
After a decade, Jess quit her day job but she still uses humor today to deliver actionable content related to everything you ever wanted to know about where leadership and diversity collide. Though often referred to as a thought leader, Jess responds that she just makes leaders think.
Jess works with toxic workplaces to help them build up the skills they already have. For example, we all have challenging conversations with the people we like and respect but we don’t have these same challenging conversations with the people we don’t like or respect. We have the skills but need to learn how to discern the two different buckets.
Today, Chief Revolution Officer John DiJulius of the DiJulius Group talks with Jess about this process and the work she does within organizations. They also get into her background and what led her to do what she does today. Tune in to learn what “good enough now” means and benefit from all of Jess’ incredible insights.
