Jamie’s Story

Jamie has been consulting and speaking for organizations since 2001. Before that, he worked in the field of international conflict resolution, and he leveraged that experience into a successful management consulting practice, specializing in nonprofit trade associations and professional societies.

An early adopter of social media, Jamie has been actively blogging since 2005, first here on this site (though long-time friends will remember www.getmejamienotter.com) and now on several other popular blogs and on LinkedIn. Jamie was a pioneer in articulating the potential of social business, connecting the principles of social media with innovative practices in leadership and management. His book, Humanize, co-authored with Maddie Grant and published in 2011, garnered industry attention for its foresight and comprehensive approach to building organizations that are more compatible with today’s digital age. About Jamie Notter

After the release of Humanize, his speaking career took off and his consulting work became more and more focused on organizational culture. In 2014, he and Maddie started consulting together through their company, Culture That Works LLC, and a year later they published their second book—When Millennials Take Over—which ties together several different threads of their combined 35 years of experience into a short but powerful guide to creating organizations that will thrive in these revolutionary times.

In 2016, Jamie and Maddie partnered with HR leader and future of work expert, Charlie Judy to create a uniquely powerful culture assessment, the Workplace Genome, which Jamie and Maddie now use as a discovery tool with many of their clients at their company, Human Workplaces. They are now expanding their ventures to include culture training, a Culture Tools review website, and (coming soon) a new Culture Podcast.

Jamie holds a master’s degree in conflict resolution from George Mason University, and a Certificate in Organization Development from Georgetown, where he serves as adjunct faculty. Jamie lives in the Washington, DC area.
