About this Episode

Indianapolis is home to some great industry leaders. Joe Mack started his career as an Army Officer who graduated from West Point Military Academy. He moved on to Perot Systems, mentored and guided by Ross Perot.

Joe Mack has personally been in charge of over 50 teams, ranging in size from 3 to over 150, in military and civilian organizations, in both peacetime and forward-deployed situations... and he's consulted on enterprise-level technology transformations for companies ranging from "mom and pop" shops to household names.

Joe has developed an innate ability to recognize both good and bad examples of management, leadership and corporate culture almost instantly. He's worked for managers of just about every kind. He fondly remembers those that he would have followed to the ends of the earth, and wince when "he remembers those that could not pour pee out of a boot if the instructions were written on the heel".

Join us for this entertaining conversation with Joe on his lessons of leadership.
