The first 100 days into a job can be crucial – especially in the marketing world. Making a smooth transition in, and bringing impact to the new company can be a challenge, however, due to understanding the new team, new culture, and new bosses – dealing with this stress in the right way is vital, and not always successful; The Drum reports that after their first 100 days, the average marketing leader will only spend a further 488 days in the role.
Knowing this, how should Chief Marketing Officers prepare themselves for their new job?
So how do we defeat this CMO turnover rate? In order to overcome some of these difficulties, CMOs need to engage in some goal setting even before stepping into their new job. A well-formulated roadmap will help them to navigate this critical time period and increase the likelihood of success in their new role. It will also set a positive and productive tone as they move forward into the future.
