Stepping up for the needs of your team
As a Product Manager, you are the person who isultimately responsible for the success or failure of your product.
There will always be unexpected challenges that require your leadership and guidance.
If something needs to get done, it's your job to make sure it gets prioritized.
You are the main connector across teams and roles.
You will push for alignment across all stakeholders to avoid potential miscommunications or misunderstandings.
People come to you for a wide range of issues/problems that need solving.
You aren't going to have all the answers, but you take action to communicate with those who do.
You need to be okay with saying "No".
When building a product, being sure to ask the "obvious" questions is imperative - even though it feels daunting.
Even if you don't consider yourself to be very "technical", you're curious to learn more about technical concepts and how they will impact your product.
