He has worked effectively with a range of age groups from teenagers, to early- career young adults to senior executives. He guides individuals in understanding their personal and professional strengths and leading them to achieve their fullest potential by leveraging those strengths.


With empathy, joyfulness, and passion, it is important to him to support individuals in functioning optimally in the workplace while fulfilling a sense of personal purpose and work/life balance. In leading teams and organizations, it is integral that they align their practices with their organization’s mission and vision to achieve desired outcomes.

Recently, McGuire founded the non-profit organization, Coaching for Everyone. Its mission is to offer complimentary coaching and leadership support to traditionally underserved and under-resourced Black, Latinx, and Indigenous populations.
