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.
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 (now PROPEL), 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.
Continuing to push the envelope in defining the "future of work," Jamie and Maddie partnered with visionary HR leader Charlie Judy to create a uniquely powerful WorkXO culture assessment, which they later sold to the survey company, QuestionPro. They continue to use the assessment with their culture design clients and are currently digging into the aggregate data to pull out insights about core culture patterns.
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.
