Morgan, an experienced VP of Marketing, contacted me because she wanted to go further faster. Her boss gave her very positive performance reviews for her marketing and brand building abilities. But that’s where she stopped short.

Morgan’s peers considered her a masterful marketing adviser. But she had very few internal champions. Peers told me “Morgan always wants to have the last word. And if that means interrupting me when I’m sharing my ideas, she will do it.” This incessant need was holding her back….

Ever since the pandemic began, I catch myself becoming impatient, even agitated, when it takes more than five seconds to confirm my order. I expect to not only have a great customer experience. I also expect my product (or dinner) to appear on my doorstep within minutes or hours.

During my recent Mindful Marketer Live Stream, I explored how this phenomenon is re-shaping the rules of customer engagement and marketing.

As we await an accelerated distribution of COVID vaccines, we simply cannot predict when we will return to a new hybrid work model. And we certainly cannot predict how our customers will behave differently in the post-COVID world. (One thing is for sure: we all share a pent-up longing for hugs and gatherings!) It feels as if we are in a messy maelstrom. We just hosted our Marketing Growth Leaders private cohort last week. The theme was crystal clear: Transition.

What’s on the mind of CMOs these days? Based on last week’s private breakfast discussion with our Marketing Growth Leaders, a lot! If you are a marketing leader, or work with CMOs, you need to know what keeps them awake at night, and find ways to help them navigate these challenging times while designing a new course for the post-pandemic world.

I will be hosting a private CEO/CMO virtual breakfast on October 23rd. Our session will explore “The CEO-CMO Alliance: Healthy Growth in a Time of COVID.”

If you’re currently in a VP or CMO-level role, please join us for this private discussion. It will help you:

Position yourself as a stronger influencer in the C-SuiteGenerate ideas for growth during COVIDIdentify strategies or behaviors that hamper your CEO relationshipDiscuss what KPIs matter for 2021

You will walk away with pragmatic strategies to help you become a growth champion and strategic collaborator across your organization….

While knowledge, skill, education, and intelligence are key elements to a company’s success during good times, decisiveness during challenging times may just keep you afloat. And sometimes it means you will make mistakes when facing a fork in the road.

 Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D., is one of the world's leading researchers in the field of motivation and has identified two basic types of mindsets in her book, Mindset: The New Psychology of Success.  She refers to them as either fixed or growth mindsets.  People with a fixed mindset (those who believe their intelligence is fixed) prefer to take on projects that will make them look good.  They are generally obsessed with their image and are afraid of looking bad.  This prevents them from doing things that can stretch them and help them increase their competency — even when they might badly need those new skills.
