How Polymensa helps senior managers

Every agency we’ve ever worked with has had a problem they wanted to solve.


That’s obvious! 
Mo money, mo problems - ey?

What’s less obvious is how marketing agencies go about solving those problems - effectively…

Trial & Error alone won't work.

What we often see is senior management teams trying to figure it out on their own using trial and error, intuition or outdated methods to solve their challenges.

Wasting thousands of pounds and countless hours.
Increasing frustration, stress and dissatisfaction among team members and clients.
At worst, lose valuable team members and clients in the process.
The agency ends up stagnating.
You know, kinda doing alright
until an unexpected event hits you right in the belly.
Suddenly that kinda alright - ain’t good enough and you’re now making a loss.

Or even worse…
The agency ends up growing too fast without the right kind of structure, processes and people to support it, until another unexpected event pulls the wrong block out of the wonky Jenga tower.

Same problem, different angle...


Because senior managers at marketing agencies between 20 - 50 employees are often promoted from within. 
It’s one of the best things seeing someone rise to the top right from the bottom.


But how do they know what excellence looks like, if they haven’t seen the top from anywhere else? 

In many cases they may start to feel like an imposter, which can have a detrimental effect on their leadership style, ability to confidently and effectively solve problems… causing their colleagues to lose trust in their ability.

And as the spiral continues, the lack of adequate training of a senior manager can ultimately affect the reputation, profitability and sustainability of the agency.
