Give a S#!t! - Leading Product Teams with Accountability, Influence, and Care

"If nothing changes, nothing changes," says author and educator Courtney C. Stevens. If you're looking for improved team effectiveness in both product development and product management, it's time to start with changing conditioned models of managing and leading that are outdated and, quite frankly, ineffective.

Please join the PDMA on April 18, 2018, at Padilla when Kurt Schmidt, President of Foundry, will invite us to reconsider the way we've "always done" this management and leadership "thing". Building upon lessons he's learned throughout his career, he'll provoke us to both "Give a S#!t" and also help us:

Key Take-Aways:

  • Learn the difference between leading by example and leading by managing
  • Understand the difference between being a micromanager and a manager
  • Learn tactical ways to manage introverts and extroverts
  • Discern the difference between real problems and venting and the spin
