Product Leadership Skills with Roman Pichler

Being a successful product manager or product owner requires strong leadership: You have to direct and guide the stakeholders and development team without having the authority to tell people what to do.

Attending this workshop will increase your leadership skills, and help you become an inclusive and inspiring product leader. You will learn how to build strong relationships with powerful stakeholders, skilfully deal with difficult people, and achieve firm support for your decisions.
