Leading a marketing team is a big job. You have to define and communicate a marketing strategy, know how and when to give constructive feedback, and deliver it in a positive manner without disrupting team morale and productivity.

  • Be clear and concise – Address your team with a clear message, and get straight to the point. Explain why you’re bringing a particular issue to their attention so that they can better understand where you’re coming from and be more motivated to actively change for the better.
