Executive (or equivalent title) (20+ years)
Associate Managing Partner TBWA WorldHealth US.
YOU ARE THE CONDUCTOR:
You connect teams and people to create space for excellence, regardless of department, geography, or reporting structure—always finding new ways of operationalizing our geographically boundless model.
Ever mindful of what’s best for the people and teams in the agency, you understand how to make decisions to benefit the agency, and bring your teams along with you toward the vision. You take part in shaping agency strategic direction through your involvement with the Global Leadership Team and leadership of key strategic imperatives.
When you engage in your clients’ business, you think above the annual plan by keeping in front of their most challenging business problems with solutions that drive their business and make them look good.
You set the tone in championing brave ideas with conviction and purpose, partnering with department leads to get sht done.
You rally your team to turn breakdowns into breakthroughs, always seeking a better way to do and be. From your position at the rostrum, you are identifying and growing the agency leaders of tomorrow, as you do your part to grow our business. You are additive and ambassadorial in relation to our culture and values, every day.
What does this mean, and look like?
Leadership in this role looks like this:
You are accountable. Simple as that. We are not driven by numbers, they are a product of putting brilliant, motivated people onto clients’ businesses. When we do that we have always found the numbers come.
In the agency and with the clients.
When our cross-functional teams work in harmony, and there is an intangible dynamic between account management, strategy, creative, and operations; we are unstoppable. You have to drive that dynamic in all directions, up down, and side to side. You have to fix it when it breaks down and you have to recognise and reward it when it flows.
Clients need both trusted agency advisors and business partners from their agencies today. What worked 12 months ago might not work now. We demand to be seen as more than just ‘the team that delivers the campaign’ (although that’s important). We want our clients to need us in their meetings because we are THE source of new ideas for their business.
At it’s most basic, you’ll ensure the financials match our activity and staffing over time. That means leading your cross-functional team to truly understand the client assignment, the task in hand. To help them model over the year, to flex and bend the type of discipline we need to deliver to them, and to ensure that it all gets paid for.
But you’ll truly excel when you can anticipate and outmanoeuvre our competition. As the world consolidates around the word of our zeitgeist, ‘digital’, you’ll be planning for the evolving disciplines our clients need.
Setting the tone. The outcome of setting the right tone, is that you create a reputation for your direct and indirect team. You build the atmosphere that makes your crew a destination assignment. You find the love inside every client and agency workstream and you epitomise that, every day.
