Life Transitions: Moving from IC to People Manager
Just got promoted or planning to move into managing a PM team? Congratulations! This is an exciting journey but is far from being easy or straightforward.
Join me at the Product Management Festival virtual experience to hear a presentation built off the personal experience that aims to empower experienced product managers to proactively consider and prepare for the transition into people management. We will cover this career path independently of the IC track, and explore common mistakes and challenges, trust-building and coaching techniques, performance assessment, team goals, and empowerment. While there are many available resources that can help new people managers become better, there are some nuances that are specific to product management.
