Jake Greene California

Born and raised in the Midwest, Jake Greene graduated from Stanford University with a BA in International Communication and a Masters in Sociology. He developed a strong interest in professional culture while working for a Fortune 500 company in Chicago and a venture-backed startup out of Denver. He founded his consulting practice, Greene Group, in 2006. Through Greene Group, he works with growth companies on branding, change, and growth initiatives.

Jake is the author of Whoa, My Boss Is Naked! A Career Book for People Who Would Never Be Caught Dead Reading a Career Book (Doubleday). The book is filled with pop culture references from the '80s, '90s and today that support wide-ranging advice on how to land a job and get ahead without becoming a corporate tool. As the New York Sun wrote, the book "walks readers through all the potholes of office life in a fun and irreverent way that might keep even the hippest (and most resistant) office addition riveted." The Dallas Morning News wrote, "Finally, a career book with sound advice for Gen Y and millennials."

Jake and his work have been featured in national print, radio and TV media, including / CNNMoney, Current TV and XM Satellite Radio. He speaks regularly to both corporate and collegiate audiences, offering peer-level advice to help young professionals succeed in the working world while also providing insights for Gen X and Baby Boomer bosses looking to adapt to the needs of their changing workforce. He uses anecdotes, humor and an encyclopedic knowledge of pop culture to entertain and educate his audiences.

  • Face Time vs. Facebook Time: Communicating across the Generation Gap - There is a massive communication gap between the Generations that grew up in front of computers and those who adapted to computers as adults. Offices around the country are plagued by miscommunication stemming from email etiquette, social media policies, and inconsistent online/offline personalities.

    This program focuses on identifying several key differences in the way generations communicate and leveraging the strengths of each group. Additionally, senior executives will gain insight into the habits and attitudes of young professionals by studying TV, movies, and music from their pop culture upbringing.

  • Offensive Ideas: Building a working environment where uncensored creativity drives innovation and revenue - Many companies boast creative working environments, but very few dedicate time every month to generating, pitching, and guiding new ideas. In most offices, innovation and creativity are driven defensively, encouraged only when business is threatened by competition. In this program, organizations will learn how to set up processes for developing and harvesting creativity, as well as establishing an environment where innovation occurs organically and proactively.

  • Personal Positioning for the Pop Culture Generation - Most people only think about career paths when they are pissed off, freaked out, or desperate, meaning they hate their jobs, they might lose their jobs, or they need new jobs immediately. As such, they miss out on the opportunities to position themselves for development and success. By focusing on entertaining "sins" of personal positioning, this program focuses on how professionals can land jobs and get ahead without becoming corporate tools.
