My approach

Why coaching?

While there are many ways for individuals and teams to learn and hone their Product skills, coaching is consistently viewed as one of the most effective.  There are many benefits that come from Product coaching, including:
 

  • Context-relevant. Unlike generic training or conferences, coaching is completely relevant to the environment, context, and immediate circumstances of the Product Manager and Product Mgmt team.
     

  • Results. Coaching drives results by working closely with individuals and teams to gain clarity, create a plan, and execute.
     

  • Accountability.  Coaching has built-in accountability for the Product Manager knowing that they are expected to come prepared to each coaching session.
     

  • Longer time span.  Unlike a conference or a short class, coaching allows for growth and learning over an extended period of time.
     

  • Easier to schedule.  Rather than carving out multiple days and travel for a class or conference, coaching fits within a Product Manager’s busy and demanding schedule.
