"The best advice I got was from John Doerr, who said, 'My advice to you is to have a coach.'"
Eric Schmidt as CEO of Google
Can you relate to any of these challenges the tech product managers I've coached experienced before they stepped into a product management leadership role?
“The biggest challenge I face was moving into product management without a confidential mentor and not knowing where to look for mentors in the product management world. I need guidance on topics you would never divulge in a study group or online peer group."
"I know I don't have a voice with the right-decision makers right now. And I lack confidence that I have influence with key stakeholders. But how do you increase your share of voice?”
"I feel the need to overcompensate for the lack of visibility by doing additional work and taking more technical training but even that isn't working... it’s just wearing me out."
"I stumbled into this job and still don't have clarity on a career path, goals, much less how to get there. Do I fit a career path option in an enterprise center versus a small shop with more agility?"
"What are the new skills I need to be succeed in the current shifting dynamic of cost-cutting, layoffs, leadership changes, and threat of recession?
And is it possible that you're...
...not even sure if you're at the right company? All this trial and error in your career is only getting you passed over for promotions, hamstringing your earning power, and burning up product cycles with nothing to show for it.
"The world needs more product LEADERS."

Still unsure if Product Leader Blueprint is right for you?
You are ready to be a product leader if...
- You're at an inflection point in your career... you just got a promotion to a new position, you want a promotion, you want to keep your position during leadership turnover, you've got your eye on landing the perfect job at a new company.
- You refuse to go one more day without a career goals and a roadmap to get there.
- You want the visibility and respect needed to influence company growth with bold ideas, and lead product development from a blank draft board and customer focus group to a raving release.
- You want to wake up very day inspired and end the day (even rough ones) feeling fulfilled by the work you do and that means you need to make time for YOUR mentorship over the next 10-weeks.
Product Leader Blueprint is NOT a fit for you if...
- You're just looking to string together more good days than bad days to "get by." If you don't aspire to a more fulfilling, higher paying career in product management, this mentorship isn't for you.
- If you think this mentorship program is about getting other people to change that usually means you're not coachable. If you truly think you have no control over your career trajectory this mentorship isn't for you.
Questions your fellow product leaders asked...
I have a lot of challenges that are unique to my situation.
Can I really land a leadership position without an MBA?
How do you manage to succeed in a company that doesn't value product management and just plain sucks at it?
Do these strategies only work at Google?
I'm already overwhelmed and mentally exhausted with work. When will I have the time and energy to do this?
Aren't I better prioritizing technique and analytical skills more than these "soft" skills?
It all boils down to this.
You just can't get this kind of training at university
(But it's almost impossible to succeed in product management without it.)
The best time to get a mentor was as you entered the industry.
The next best time is today.
Investment in Product Leader Blueprint isn't just about getting to present bold ideas or weathering the latest economic storm.
It's about where you'll be this time 12-months from now.
Will you be valued? Getting tapped for the top projects? Finally earning what you're worth?
Or will you still be standing on quicksand, under-earning, but surviving? Feeling underappreciated, invisible, and overlooked for promotions that might cost you $1M-plus in your lifetime career?
You have a choice.
You can try to figure this all out on your own using trial and error... you're a product manager after all.
But how long is that going to take you? How many choice projects or promotions do you get passed over for while you're scouring Reddit, Medium, and Google to patch together do-it-yourself career advice.
...in the next 10-weeks you can fast track your way into leadership in your company—or with a new company who's lucky enough to recruit you—directly responsible for a product or an entire portfolio strategy.
Being visible, trusted, viewed as effective, and making the key connections that you keep for years is the only viable career strategy in product management that doesn't end in burnout.
