I’m thrilled to be Master of Ceremonies for this year’s Leading the Product conference in Australia. As part of that, I’ll be offering one-day workshops on career ladders to product leadership:
The day will be packed with learning, exercises, and a safe setting for career discussion. We will cover:
- What does a product leader actually do?
- How is that the same/different from what individual product managers do?
- Do I want that job? Opportunities, concerns, other career paths
- How to signal interest and move up into a leadership role
This workshop is perfect for anyone thinking about moving up the product org chart, and for newly promoted product leaders.
Product managers, senior product owners, design/research leads: learn how product leadership differs from individual contributor product (and design) roles. Get a taste of the new challenges, skills, conflicts and organizational ju jitsu of great product leaders. Safely talk about your own goals and ways to demonstrate interest/readiness for leadership opportunities.
Newly promoted product leaders: hear what’s important and strategic in your new role, identify key challenges and areas for skills development. Learn what issues other product leaders wrestle with.
