About Me & My Passion for Leadership

My name is Courtney Joy Jemison. I’m wife to my unwavering solid rock and safe place, John, and I’m mom to two beautiful quarter Koreans, Olivia and Ethan. I’m the Chief Creative Officer at Jonah Digital Agency in Texas and a passionate writer on the topics of emotional intelligence and selfless leadership.

I began my career like most others—at the bottom working hard and proving myself in an entry-level position. Four promotions, five positions, and six years later, I am now in executive leadership. By no means am I perfect, but I know what rapid growth looks like and what it takes to unlock the level of influence you’re aiming for.

Career success is not all about competency. When we learn to put our ego aside; become more emotionally intelligent communicators; and empower the growth and success of others, our personal growth skyrockets and we can’t help but bring others along with us. I’m driven to share my heart on these matters because I know there are many of you out there with a great capacity for leadership that may not always be surrounded by mentors who are exampling how to selflessly lead. I want you to have access to challenging, yet practical content that empowers your potential and helps you grow into the leader that others are inspired to run with.

My Purpose & Top 5 Values

To nurture meaningful connection with my family as we extend our loyalties to those who are driven by similar life values. I will invest my time into purposeful ventures where kindness rules conversation and impact is earned through empathy, excellence, and positive problem-solving. As I remain disciplined in my personal growth, I will be the leader who liberates people into their greatest potential and partners with them in pursuit of their purpose.

1. Growth

I passionately believe that refinement only happens in the fires of purposeful and courageous action. I will endlessly pursue growth that sharpens my character, stretches my competencies, and strengthens my connection with others.

2. Excellence

I will never negotiate my quality of work based on promise of significance or recognition. I will be attentive to the imperceptible details of everything I put my hands to, knowing that excellence is less about what is observed and more about what is experienced.

3. Loyalty

My family will always be the object of my most engaged presence and loyalty. Together, we will plant deep, long-lasting roots with others who are driven by similar life values and are passionate about creating collective, meaningful impact in the world.

4. Kindness

Kind words have the power to provoke conviction without compromising connection. I will continually choose to lead with kindness rather than momentary emotion, convinced that this brings about the most eternal and transformative growth in others.

5. Influence

I am wholly devoted to stewarding an influence that is marked by consistency, selfless leadership, and big, solution-driven vision. I will be a leader who liberates people into their greatest potential and partners with them in pursuit of their growth.
