Session #

Product Management

Product Manager Group Therapy

Working in product is hard, but it doesn’t have to drive you crazy. That’s where product management group therapy comes in. In this session, we’ll get to know each other while humorously identifying some of our more common pain points. We’ll then break into small groups engaging in fun trust building activities – different from any previous session you may have attended – followed with liberating structures guided discussions. In the end, you’ll not only feel the catharsis of addressing your needs as a person of product, but also you’ll see that you are not alone in what makes you anxious and that you have product friends and peers in your nearby community to help keep you focused on awesome value delivery.
