Katerina Suchkova

Product Coach & Co-founder | KaterinaSuchkova.com & Ahead of Product

Over the last decade, I have worked across various B2C and B2B product areas in hyper-growing startups like 15Five and enterprises such as ServiceNow. As a yoga teacher and mindfulness practitioner, I co-founded an e-commerce startup several years ago to design and build a reversible meditation cushion for yoga and mindfulness enthusiasts. Since then, I’ve been applying my entrepreneurial mindset to everything I do. I switched my focus to coaching product managers and leaders in the last three years as I saw both a gap and an opportunity. Coaching has become more than just an occupation for me as it evolved into a calling and purpose. Cultivating the human side of product management by focusing on humans who build products proves itself a solid approach to making an impact on the product and tech world. Today, as a part of my coaching practice, I work with individual product managers and leaders looking to intentionally grow in their product careers and product teams lacking a structured approach to PM career growth and development. Being passionate about education, I’ve recently co-founded the Ahead of Product – a hands-on career program designed just for Product Managers who are ready to acquire the necessary skills to transition to product leadership.
