In this series of videos, DMI expert and professional coach Kevin Reid takes us on a deep dive into the differences between being busy and being productive, how to get a hold on your productivity and focus, and dealing with interruptions.
About The Essential Skills Series
This series includes a number of videos that explore those personal skills that we tend to overlook but which are becoming ever more important in your marketing life. These include communication, creativity, persuasion, project management, collaboration, strategic thinking, and crisis management. An important study was done in 2019 by the Digital Marketing Institute in collaboration with The Economist Group, and the full white paper is available to read on the library. The survey of 500 global marketing executives revealed that the ongoing skills gap in digital marketing includes these key essential skills.
