Meet Our Instructors
Charlie Kim, Founder & Co-CEO of Next Jump. Charlie founded Next Jump in 1994 in his college dorm room. He grew the business to 150 employees in the first dot-com boom, soon to be followed by the dot-com bust, bringing the Company down to 4 employees before building back up. Next Jump proves the combination of caring for your employees and helping them grow as human beings is possible while making money and helping the world become a better place. Next Jump believes this is a pre-requisite in today’s human capital economy and calls it Better Me + Better You = Better Us. In addition to building a $2 billion technology company over 25 years, Next Jump was recognized by Harvard as one of the best run companies in the world. Simon Sinek featured Next Jump in his TED Talk for their no-fire policy. Thousands of leaders have gone through Next Jump’s Leadership Academy and experienced their developmental culture. Charlie is often invited to speak and share lessons learned from training the leadership across every industry including business (Fortune 500), sports (Olympic teams), medicine, education, military, CIA, etc.
Meghan Messenger, Co-CEO of Next Jump. Meghan started as a door to door sales intern for Next Jump in 1998 and now serves as the Co-CEO. She credits her success to the consistent practice of leading with authenticity. We are what we practice, however the #1 thing we practice is LHF (“lying/hiding/faking”), managing other people's impressions of us, trying to look good. In addition to building a $2 billion technology company over 25 years, Next Jump was recognized by Harvard as one of the best run companies in the world. Simon Sinek featured Next Jump in his TED Talk for their no-fire policy. Meghan is often invited to speak about how individuals and organizations fail in the 21st century.

Charlie and Meghan, You did a fantastic job of tackling a difficult topic of untangling complex emotions. You are right, small knots can become huge problems ... especially for people that tend to be more \"emotional\". This is a situation I had at my last job. I had many small knots until it blew up at the worst time. What I still haven\'t figured out is how do you find the \"right person to talk to\"? You are making yourself very vulnerable and that can lead to devastating consequences. Also, when are the knots to many to untangle until you decide to get a new fishing pole?
1) TIMELY topic given the toll COVID-induced VUCA is inflicting on all of us 2) took a few minutes to figure out how the topic connected with previous sessions on being unfiltered, etc, Bottom line for me its that this was about even-ing out internal distortions which therefore allows one to interact with others with less distortion. this was largely about calling \'bulls*t\' on yourself 3)I have a pile of unprocessed COVID-related anxiety and you\'ve given me clear method to deal with this, thank you
Another great class Charlie. You are such a great teacher. You both hone in on the lesson, but isntaught in such a way that you can't help but grasp the info. By the way, you all need to have Health Aide and Snack Nation sponsor you guys. Since attending, I am a customer of both.
