Performance reviews play a vital role in evaluating and fostering the growth of marketing managers. These assessments provide an opportunity to recognize achievements, identify areas for improvement, and align goals with organizational objectives.

Businesses across industries are trained to tackle different problems daily. Employees inherit problem solving skills; however, they may approach issues in diverse methods. Similarly, accounting firms face a unique set of challenges that they must overcome head on to achieve their business goals.

A growth mindset is the idea that you view challenges as something to overcome. You view any obstacle as something to learn from, something that you can defeat with hard work. The idea behind a growth mindset is that by virtue of seeing challenges and failures as learning opportunities and chances to improve, you increase the likelihood of success by believing that you can overcome the obstacle. If you fail at something you may just give up and never try again, but if you see it as something that you can beat with enough work then you will want to try again until you succeed.

It's a remarkable feat to be successful by anyone's definition, especially your own. I always find that the hardest markers are ourselves. We tend to be most critical of what we do, how we do it and what outcomes derive from the fruits of our labor.

If you run a marketing team, you will realise a few things; firstly that no marketing team can be all the same, and secondly, a mixture of personalities and skills is required for optimum performance. When choosing a team, it's best to steer away from selecting people just like you, or like another person who you rate as being a good marketer on your team. The reason is simple; a strong, competent, successful marketing team has to have a mixture of personalities that collaborate, support, encourage, nurture and push each other to reach their full potential both individually and as a team.

While this may seem idealistic, it's a reality for any competent marketing manager who has the 'balls' to think outside the box when they are putting together a team of people to take a company to the next level.
