Chief Marketing Officers are the voice behind the vision and strategy.   

 

Chief Marketing Officers drive growth for a business through vision and strategy. You are the power behind how everything is viewed by those all-important customers. CMO’s make a want become a need through exceptional communication.

You realize the absoloute importance of understanding how your customers communicate, so shouldn’t it be the same for your team? By having a interpersonal learning communication strategy, the marketing team will flow and align like never before.

We provide an eight-part communication intelligence reporting tool system, communication strategy and unparalleled support, that you use to understand the different communication styles around the table. With our customized plans, we facilitate your needs and coach you and your team to communication excellence.

62% of marketing leaders say individuals and teams in their departments are more aligned with each other than ever. They’re driving cohesive customer journeys across the whole of marketing, rather than just their own channel or function — the more aligned they become, the better they perform. –Salesforce  – State of Marketing Report

What is your CEO looking for?

The CEO of your organization is expecting Chief Marketing Officers to be true partners to the business. The expectation is that you will devise, deliver and communicate a transformative strategy to help the organization achieve its strategic goals.

The Forté system is designed to help create open communication and enable everyone to contribute irrespective of their style. Forté generates team-based data, allowing you to strategize and communicate accordingly.

Driving a Culture of Excellence

As the CMO, you take a leading role in the creation and strengthing of the culture in your organization.

Culture is typically defined as “the way we do things around here”.

The C-Suite sets the tone and people follow from the top down, so the emphasis is therefore on how management and leaders communicate a culture to their team. By using our system, you will understand the cultural descriptors and actionable insights into your leadership team and across the organization.

Before Forté, I didn’t know that I was missing anything. I had always been heavily reliant on very expensive and very time-consuming personality assessments that were not conducive to the working environments that I was in.

 I have been using Forté for the past 6 years and it is now such a huge part of how I communicate in my working life. Those who use it, quickly see team trends, along with the communication health of an organization in great detail. You can act fast and strategize on the findings.

The consistent feedback I always get from those who use it is, “I can’t believe for the limited amount of time it takes for me to undertake the survey, that you get so much information and how spot on it is.”

We often live in the red, but Forté allows us to see the blue. It brings positive strategy, orientation and planning to how you communicate with customers and clients.

The cost of Forté is also something very important and the value it gives for the price you pay is second to none.

If you are looking for something that is very specifically related to building muscle around communication behaviors and intelligence, such as how people communicate with each other through verbal, writing, face to face or on the phone, this is the best thing I have ever seen in my 20 years in working in the OD, performance and leadership space.
