It has been a tough year, but change brings opportunities for worldwide product leaders. In this 4.5 hour online workshop, Gibson Biddle begins by describing how to position yourself for success as he outlines the product and leadership skills required for product leaders, whether you are a product manager, project manager, product marketer, designer, data scientist, or engineer. Gib then describes how to take a hypothesis-driven approach to your career, outlining small experiments you can engage in to figure out how to find great jobs and to advance your career. Last, the workshop outlines an approach to building your own personal board of directors that provides ongoing feedback and insight as you grow.
Gib does all this through a series of step by step exercises, outlined in your own pre-formatted Google Slides. At the end of the workshop, you will have your own Career Action Plan that will help to jumpstart your career. You will also have an opportunity to get to know your product leader peers in small, virtual breakout rooms
