leading without authority

In this Focus Forty episode I speak with Jackie Bavaro, Head of PM at Asana, about Leading without Authority, success and more.

The one thing we, as product makers, most often ignore is the relationships with our team members, customers and other stakeholders. Secondly, we miss the fact that a lot of our success needs some amount of inward-focus. In this episode, we speak about:

  • Why relationships are key for product managers and makers.
  • The key areas we need to focus on as product managers and makers.
  • How our guest looks at success and failure.
