Key takeaways from this episode:
- Strategy alignment is critical. Lisa mentioned that ensuring leadership teams are aligned on the company’s annual or multi-year game plan can help to set the entire organization up for success. From a place of internal alignment, it can be much easier to determine priority areas of focus and crystallize the company’s overall goals.
- Understand your customer. Once you’ve done the legwork needed to truly understand your customer and get inside their head, you can gain enough traction to bring more value to the marketplace. According to Lisa, the magic resides in the ability to think ahead and execute well from a place of knowledge and empowerment.
- Believe in the mission. Lisa credits her success in the marketing world to her genuine passion and belief in the mission of the companies she’s worked for in the past. As an individual, feeling an authentic passion for the work you’re doing can help you maximize your impact and bring value to your customers over time.
