Jullien is a true strategist and visionary. He gets things done by being a skilled taskmaster. He has helped us create a vision for our business and implement an action plan that made it very clear what my and my business partners’ tasks needed to be. Jullien is always available to take calls and responds quickly to emails with outside of the box ideas to develop our business. He’s helped us nearly double our revenues in the space of a year and a half. We continue to work with him every time we need someone to help us think through our plan and the best ways to execute that plan. Thank you, Jullien!

Having engagement problems?

New Higher is a high performance consultancy that believes in the power of questions. Through our innerviewing practice, we increase employee engagement and retention by anonymously asking your employees the right question to discover what motivates them so that you can close unnecessary gaps in your human capital strategy.

Here is what I noticed. Jullien has a rare depth of understanding about what it truly takes to actually change in a world that likes to chat about change, sugar-coat what it truly means to “change” and fails to understand the skills involved and available to monumentally change an organization.

Jullien is adroit. Unfortunately many folks in the “change” business stick to their prescribed agenda and wind up trapped in a single-minded approach. While Jullien has a distinct modeled approach he realizes that the work is about helping people attain what they truly want in life not furthering the brilliance of his model. The model is a tool. Being of service is the point and he has the wherewithal to skip to the point of effectiveness whenever called upon to be more effective away from his model.

Human Capital 2.0

How To Motivate & Manage Millennials In The 21st Century

Program Summary

Millennials have been labeled as lazy, disloyal, and entitled and these perceptions are affecting how we receive and lead them in the workplace. Millennials have a different definition of success personally and professionally than Boomers and Gen Xers and that’s why old human capital strategies aren’t working. As a results, Millennials are harder to retain and leaving a leadership void for aging organizations. Jullien’s expertise will help those who hire and manage Millennials understand what motivates them so that they can be effectively managed and he will train your leaders in best practices that are working for other organizations worldwide.

Target Audience: Senior leaders & Middle managers

Millennials want 3 things from work:

1. Create Value: Millennials want autonomy to be entrepreneurial and understand how their daily efforts impact on the organization’s success.

2. Be Valued: Millennials want to be valued with increasing responsibility, feedback, and training to improve their skill set rather than just money.

3. Align Their Values: Millennials want to  work hard without sacrificing work-life balance and see how their work is having a social impact

The Art Fry Effect

How To Unlock The Entrepreneurial Spirit In Your Employees & Create An Army Of Inner Entrepreneurs

Program Summary

Art Fry created the Post-It Note while he was employed at 3M. Because of his intrapreneurship, Post-It Notes are on every office desk in the world and there is a factory in Cynthiana, Kentucky that produces most of the world’s post-its even though the patent has expired. Art Fry didn’t just see himself as a job haver, he saw himself as a job creator.

There are 3 types of employees:

1. Profitable: Creates more value than they take

2. Break Even: Creates as much value as they take

3. Unprofitable: Takes more value than they create

Unprofitable employees are the downfall of teams and organizations. That’s why it is important to get every employee from the secretary to the senior leaders to see themselves as entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurial people are profitable whereas employee-minded people tend to do the bare minimum to keep their job. This training is about helping everyone see themselves as job creators rather than job havers through their individual high performance.

New Senior Associates Training

In 2011, a Fortune 500 professional services firm invited Jullien to be a part of their employee engagement program for new Senior Associates to help them navigate their next phase of leadership and life. Jullien worked closely with the firm to customize a training and keynote that aligned with the program goals. The program is designed to increase retention and engagement of millennials who think differently about their careers than any generation before. The event is 5 times a year and Jullien has been booked through 2015. The work has led to a 50% increase in retention of their 2,000+ Senior Associates.

Echoing Green: Fellow Selection & Alumni Development

Jullien worked side-by-side with Cheryl Dorsey, Executive Director of Echoing Green, to help her identify and codify a framework for fellow selection and alumni development. The framework is known as S.E.Q. which stands for Social Entrepreneurship Quotient. Originally S.E.Q. was based on Ms. Dorsey’s intuition about social entrepreneurs after seeing them and selecting them for decades, but she wanted to add some research-based rigor to the framework. Jullien and his team of ethnographers interviewed a cohort of Echoing Green alumni using his “innerviewing” technique and packaged their findings into a comprehensive report that now guides fellow selection and alumni development.


Research & Statistics

    • Highly committed employees perform up to 20 percentile points better than less committed employees, and are 87% less likely to leave the organization than employees with low levels of commitment.
    • CLC research supports this by concluding that having increased satisfaction with one’s total compensation provides up to a 21% increase in one’s intent to stay, but only a 9% increase in effort.
    • High-engagement firms had total shareholder return that was 19% higher than average in 2009. In low-engagement organizations, total shareholder return was actually 44% below average. (Hewitt Associates)
    • Organizations with high proportions of engaged employees were much less likely than the rest to see a decline in EPS in 2008, the year after the recession officially began. (Gallup)
    • Engaged organizations have 3.9 times the earnings per share (EPS) growth rate of organizations with lower engagement in their same industry.
    • One study found that organizations that scored in the top 25 percent of engagement levels had revenue growth 2.5 times that of organizations in the bottom 25 percent.
    • 25% of high-potential employees plan to change jobs in the next 12 months
    • Emotional commitment is four times as valuable as rational commitment in increasing effort levels. The manager contributes significantly to the degree of commitment to the team, the organization and the job, and is viewed as a conduit for commitment.
    • The top 4 levers of engagement are connection between work and organizational strategy (32.8), importance of job to organizational success (30.3), understanding of how to complete work projects (29.8), and internal communication (29.2). The top three have to do with day-to-day work characteristics and the fourth has to do with organizational culture and performance traits. (CLC)
