Leadership and Marketing Team Development

We will improve the marketing team’s structure according to industry best practices and define grade qualification levels to create a strong and effective team. With your marketing team’s abilities growing, new confident leaders will arise.
  • The problem
    When a marketing team lacks a leader, the company experiences negative impacts on the team's performance and overall success. Without a leader to provide guidance, direction, and coordination, employees work in disarray and make slow progress.

    Even if the team has senior and highly motivated specialists, it will not significantly improve the situation. While individual pillars may perform better, the overall marketing machine will not function effectively without a well-structured approach.

  • The cause
    People often prioritize their preferences over their responsibilities. Many individuals struggle to understand their exact obligations. Moreover, there’s a tendency to engage in activities just to appear busy. In marketing, there are many metrics available to make any task seem meaningful.

    Every marketer should ask themselves: “Am  I doing purposeful and meaningful work?” However, very few people can objectively reflect without external guidance. A marketing team needs a strong leader who acts as both a ruler and glue, keeping the team together, focused, and motivated. Without such a leader, team members may feel disconnected and unmotivated as they struggle to find purpose and direction in their work.

Team structure

The team's structure should align perfectly with the business, reflecting the products we promote, the way we promote them, the regions we target, and the industries we operate in. This alignment will determine the organization of the regional marketing teams and channel specialists. It will also determine the ideal location for product marketing, the reporting hierarchy for creating marketing content, and, most importantly, the seamless collaboration among these teams and their integration with the sales and product teams.

Qualification matrix

The qualification matrix determines the level of seniority that a marketer can have based on their experience and skills. The matrix becomes a really important tool when the marketing team grows beyond 8−10 specialists. The matrix can also define salary ranges and career paths for marketers. As a result, it creates a clear framework for evaluating and advancing the marketing team members.

Training and development plans

Marketing pros have to constantly enhance their skills and knowledge to stay current. Training plans include workshops and courses on market research, digital marketing, branding, and analytics. We also encourage marketers to speak at conferences and share their cases and experiences with the community as it brings so much more networking and knowledge than just listening to others — while your company gets even more credibility in the market.


Sometimes, it is better to take time for reflection instead of solely focusing on acquiring new knowledge. We believe mentoring is most effective when individuals from diverse fields mentor each other, rather than a superior mentoring a subordinate. However, fractional marketing leadership is different. Since we do not have daily involvement, we can assist your marketers in gaining a clear understanding of what, why, and how they can enhance their visibility, presence, and effectiveness.

Rhythm of business calls

Great art lies in making regular meetings engaging and actionable. A disciplined and time-saving approach can result from a rhythm with a clear agenda, follow-ups, and action plans. Choosing the right participants and scheduling regular calls within and beyond the team ensures that marketing operations run smoothly and efficiently.

Executive marketing candidates assessment

Finally, when it's time to hire marketing leaders internally, founders and business professionals often struggle with knowing what questions to ask to evaluate a candidate's professional suitability. We participate in interviews and ask questions that will assess a person's understanding of marketing, the relevance of their experience to the role, and their ability to lead the current team. This helps reduce the risk of hiring the wrong person and speeds up onboarding and adaptation.
