Developing Important Entrepreneurial and Leadership Qualities
Today’s guest on the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast is Jack McGuinness.
McGuinness is the co-founder and managing partner of Relationship Impact, a consulting firm focused on helping great leaders build great leadership teams.
After finishing his business degree, McGuinness landed the COO role at a new management consulting firm. He was a member of the team for 13 years. And as the business grew, he gained experience as both a management consultant and an entrepreneur. He took on roles in diverse growth-focused areas, including business development, hiring, and infrastructure.
When he left to become CEO of a contract packaging company, he became fascinated with change management and developed a passion for tapping into the leadership capacity of teams across an organization.
In 2009, he partnered with Gil Brady to form Relationship Impact, where they now help businesses build a structure for leadership teams to be more productive and effective in how they work together. In this episode, McGuinness shares stories from his own entrepreneurial journey and discusses what businesses need to focus on to embed great leadership into their organizations.
