PUBLISHER FEATURED ON SUCCESS CHARGER PODCAST
KINGMAN – Jason Jump, publisher and co-owner of the Kingman Leader-Courier and KCNOnline.com, will be the featured interview in an upcoming podcast produced by internationally-known leadership speaker Scott Cooksey.
Cooksey, who lives in The Woodlands, Texas, focuses on leadership development. Cooksey’s endeavors include individual performance coaching, team development events, leadership workshops, speaking, and serving as master of ceremonies and event announcer. He also produces podcasts that can be downloaded and listened to as the listener is doing other things.
Since 2009, he has worked with a broad spectrum of businesses across the United States, as well as the Caribbean Islands and Australia.
Prior to that, he spent 13 years in banking and financial services.
“Most of my work is centered around the idea of connection,” Cooksey said.
That connection is the central thread of success, according to Cooksey.
“If you want to be a better employer, employee, spouse or friend, you do that by making better connections with people,” he said.
Cooksey said that having looked inside the organizations of many types of businesses, he sees that most of them face the same type of challenges.
“As businesses get so caught up in solving their problems, they forget they are in business to solve other peoples’ problems,” Cooksey said.
The soon-to-be-released podcast featuring Jump will be available in a number of ways. One will be through the Leader-Courier website KCNOnline.com. Another will be at his own website, successchargerpodcast.com. Subscribers to Cooksey’s iTunes channel can get a new episode each Tuesday.
“It’s typically available about 3:30 in the morning,” Cooksey said.

“We were talking about that the other night,” Cooksey said. “We’ve known each other about 30 years – we’ve known each other since about the 8th grade.”
Jump said the podcast opportunity was very humbling and great exposure for Kingman and Kingman County.
“Scott has seen a lot of success over the last couple of decades, and because of that he has been in some pretty impressive company,” Jump said. “Because of that, it was a great honor to be asked by Scott to be a part of one of his new projects; to think he says value in how others will receive what we have been able to do here in Kingman over a short amount of time is very humbling. I’m excited for the positive publicity this will be for our great community and county.
“We have a tremendous amount to offer here in Kingman, and we need to be looking at a variety of different ways to get that message out to people who may be interested in visiting or who may be looking for a new place to call home.”
[NOTE: The Podcast episode featuring this interview will be distributed Sept 22, 2015 from SuccessChargerPodcast.com, iTunes, Stitcher Radio and other fine podcast outlets. Until that time, the episode may be heard, in its entirety, EXCLUSIVELY at KCNONLINE.COM.]
