Let's Get In The Growth Space!

I'm David McGlennen and I've been called a growth fanatic.  I love growing businesses, teams of people and maximizing their potential.   

I was inspired to create this podcast a little over a year ago for the Emerging Leader Inner Circle which is a group that I created for new people leaders within companies all around the world.

It occurred to me that I really wanted to share and hold a space with my listeners – much like having a cup of coffee together – about business growth topics.  As you’ll soon find out, real business growth only happens when the business leader and the people are growing. 

This podcast is a combination of me sharing my growth journey and listening to stories of people, leaders and companies that have done things their own way to grow.


So let's travel upward and onward together on this journey!

Episode 6 - Seasons of Growth

Why is it so hard to take time away from work - especially for high achievers and typical "Type A" personality people?

The fear of missing out or falling behind is real and too often we are afraid of really enjoying the progress we have made.

As a business owner and business leaders, it is so easy to keep looking at the gap of where we are versus where we want to be. 

Listen in as I share some strategies that I've used to lean into the natural rhythms of life and business. 


Episode 7 - The Power of an Inner Circle

This is my first guest conversation on In The Growth Space and I am honored to have one of my mentors to be that first guest.

Paul Martinelli went from High School dropout with a stuttering disability from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and a dim future to owner of a commercial office cleaning company which he sold for $1 million. 

He has shared the stage with speakers like Les Brown, Seth Godin, Nick Vujicic, Jack Canfield, Brian Tracy, Wayne Dyer, Denis Waitley, Zig Ziglar and of course John Maxwell.

He put up his own money to partner with John Maxwell and start the John Maxwell Team. It’s where I originally met Paul and got to be mentored by him.

We talk about the power of an inner circle - a mastermind and how to turn down the volume of that internal voice that tells you that you can't do something.

Be sure to let me know what your takeaways are after I give you mine at the end of this episode.  Send me a note at [email protected] to get in touch!
