How will coaching shape the future of product over the next 5-10 years?

With more and more talent transitioning from another function to product, coaching will be key to guide these talents and help them prepare & execute that transition, thrive in their new role and develop their new career to the top. Moreover, as companies keep accelerating their pace of growth and increase faster their complexity, PM will need to rely more than ever on coaches to keep up and stay ahead

What are some of the most effective frameworks you've used when coaching leaders in your area?

I like to use GROW (Goal, Reality, Options, Way forward) to help them reflect and find the answers they need instead of giving ready made solutions, challenging them to find what are the real challenges and what do they really want out of a situation. For career progression and transition, I built my own framework CAREER : Clarify the why & what, Analyze the gap, Re-align your skills, Engage your network, Establish a support system, Relentlessly try) with details here: https://link.medium.com/581wNTAx8pb

What's your best advice for product managers looking to increase their impact?

Clarify and measure your North Star metric and KPI/driver tree, identify the driver that is the most problematic and focus solely on this. Then go to the next
