Avoiding the temptation to DO more.

I recently joined Steve Caldwell on his podcast, Manager Mojo. We focused on how marketers can design a new future for customers and teams, and where they get stuck. My basic message: it’s not about doing more; it’s about being more. And that requires us to develop a strong sense of self-awareness and conscious behavior.

Intentionality is key–yet too many marketers fail to design their own future. Listen in to our conversation here ….

I always enjoy recording podcast interviews, but speaking with Dr. Diane Hamilton on her podcast (which focuses on highly successful professionals) was especially worthwhile. She really did her homework and prepared some great topics for our discussion.

In fast-changing markets, companies often get so busy running the business, they fail to understand their customers’s experience and needs.

Today, we witness greater forces of nature than I have ever witnessed firsthand: Hurricane Harvey in Houston, and his not-so-distant cousin, Irma, who is terrorizing Cuba, the Caribbean, and a wide swath of Florida. Both are testing our fortitude as a global community, and causing significant losses.

Discussions around marketing ROI and KPIs are de rigeur. But they’re missing the point. Marketing leaders first need fundamental competencies in TWO areas: relationship-building and strategic insight. This post presents five questions that every leader must explore before designing a dazzling dashboard.
