Message from Founding Partner Marty Cagan –
Most of you know that I am a big advocate for coaching. I benefited greatly in my career from ongoing coaching, at every level, so I know first-hand the power of strong coaching, especially for the very difficult job of product leadership.
One of the most common requests I personally receive is for 1:1 product leadership coaching.
While I enjoy doing this, I can only handle a relative handful of people, and one of my biggest frustrations over the past several years has been all of the very promising product leaders that have asked for coaching, yet I have not had the time available to help them. So I’ve been exploring ways to try to fix this.
I am looking at starting up twice monthly, 90-minute, virtual, group product leadership coaching sessions for current and aspiring product leaders. We will be charging for this program, but the specific pricing is yet to be determined.
Details and Prerequisites
Note that this will be a group coaching session, not individual 1:1 sessions, although this would include a private “get acquainted” call before your first session where I can learn more about your specific background, your career goals, and your current position.
This session is intended for people that have already attended the EMPOWERED product leadership workshop, but at a minimum have already read the books EMPOWERED and INSPIRED. As a reminder, we define product leaders as leaders and managers of product management, product design and engineering.
Each session will focus on a different theme or topic pertaining to product leadership. I’ll select and prepare the topics based on requests from the group, and also topics that I consider difficult, important, and not addressed well elsewhere.
The intent is to have this be an annual subscription service. People can sign up or cancel anytime. We’re still working on identifying the best day of the week and time of day.
If this product leadership coaching sounds like something you are interested in, please let us know and we’ll get back to you with more information when it becomes available.
