Product Leadership Training

Succeed in Leading Stakeholders and Product Teams

Achieving product success is not possible without strong leadership: You have to secure the stakeholders’ support, guide other product people, and lead development teams without having the authority to tell the individuals what to do.

This training course will teach you how to effectively lead others and be an inspiring and inclusive leader. You will learn proven leadership techniques that you can immediately apply to secure stronger buy-in and achieve greater alignment. The training is ideally suited for product professionals who want to take on a senior product role, lead a group of product people, and get better at managing challenging senior stakeholders.

Roman teaches this courses as an instructor-led workshop with a mix of lectures, discussions, hands-on exercises, and plenty of Q&A so that you can get your questions answered by him. You can find out more about Roman’s online training by visiting the Training FAQs.

An inspiring course that allowed me to think more strategically on how to lead teams in a large and complex organisation. I am taking away some great techniques to try out.
