Jullien, The PurposeFinder, is the country’s leading voice on purpose and motivation for the millennial generation. He already has 10 years of experience working with millennials as a CEO, coach, and counselor.
Jullien is the Founding Partner at New Higher, a high performance consultancy for organizations, individuals, and teams that want to increase employee performance, motivation, engagement, and retention. He has worked with Fortune 500 companies such as Pepsi and JPMorganChase and business schools such as Cornell, Michigan, and the University of Maryland.
Jullien’s work began in the talent recruitment and development industry in 2007 with his work as the Associate Director of Talent Recruitment for Management Leadership for Tomorrow where he recruited diverse talent at the college and MBA level. From there, he went on to start his own high performance consultancy called New Higher. As the Founding Partner of New Higher, Jullien uses his innerviewing process to help companies understand what motivates their employees.
New Higher's mission is to motivate, engage, and retain talent to increase presence, productivity, and profit. Jullien’s inquiry-based “innerviewing” trainings and tools help professionals fully align who they are with what they do so they can make their highest unique contribution in the world. He has been featured on MSNBC, Forbes, TED, and Black Enterprise for his work helping thousands of professionals be more present and perform higher in their lives and careers.
Jullien trained at the Stanford Graduate School of Business where he focused on organizational behavior, high performance leadership, strategy, and entrepreneurship.
He is also the author of four books on business, professional, and individual development, including two amazing books, The 8 Cylinders of Success: How To Align Your Personal and Professional Purpose and Good Excuse Goals: How To Eliminate Procrastination and Perfectionism Forever. Jullien is committed helping individuals and organizations increase their personal velocity—which he defines as their ability to get where they want to go faster, safer, and happier.
Since 2005 Jullien has motivated over two thousand people through his personal movements, motivational presentations, innovative courses, and coaching programs.
His work helps people build their personal movements while simultaneously building a few of his own including Potlucks, Route 66, Good Excuse Goals Groups, and Mylinia.
In 2010, he was touring the country in partnership with the National Society of Collegiate Scholars to encourage 10,000 college students to take Route 66, an alternative route to graduation that involves a list of 66 things every college student must do before graduation created by Jullien based on his insights about millennials and the world.
Jullien was the keynote speaker for the UCLA and Stanford University African graduation ceremonies in 2003 and 2007.
Prior to business school, he was the Executive Director of the UCLA SHAPE Program—a non-profit youth development program that empowered students in urban school districts to self-educate.
As a Director, he created a ground-breaking youth development curriculum, led a team of 35 employees, and raised and managed a quarter million dollars. He graduated from UCLA in three years with a Bachelor's degree in Business Economics. While there, he started the STOCKS & BONDS financial literacy organization, built an on-campus business, revived the African Men's Collective, served as the African Student Union Treasurer, and Co-Chaired UCLA's largest high school conference ever.
Jullien is passionate about writing. He blogs regularly at JullienGordon.com on millennials, motivation, purpose, and careers. He was invited to speak at the 30 Summit and The Gathering—two very selective groups for forward thinking millennials.
Jullien Gordon is originally from Oakland, California and currently resides in Brooklyn, New York.
Jullien’s presentation with students at the Ross School of Business was a fresh take on the pursuit for a fulfilling career. In working with students to help define their passions and subsequently make a plan, participants left energized and inspired to reach further to better align their personal and professional goals. Both interactive and approachable, Jullien was able to allow participants to feel comfortable enough to have a candid discussion on what they want out of their professional lives, and how to effectively reach it. Jullien’s work to help identify and outline personal purpose is important, transformational, and the perfect compliment to business education.- Rachel Brooks, University of Michigan ’09, Ross School of Business, Women In Business Initiative, Programming Chair
Jullien delivered a necessary and meaningful talk to our students about taking full advantage of their college experience and starting on their road to success.
He delivered this message in a fun, energetic way that engaged and excited our students and I am convinced it has made a positive impact on each of them. On top of it all Jullien was a pleasure to work with and I appreciated his flexibility, adaptability and genuineness.
