In fact, the guidelines covered in each section are applicable to any professional role and may even boost your personal life too.
Split into four parts, the course offers both expert guidance and real world examples. The first section focuses on communication strategies. Excel at Steve Jobs-esque storytelling, get help with public speaking and learn how to deal with colleagues in one-on-one scenarios. The second group of lectures aims to help you become a better leader, whether that’s getting to grips with influencing people or figuring out how to elevate your profile within a company.
Next up is career acceleration. This is where you’ll hear about all the job opportunities that come from product management and how to climb that ladder as swiftly as possible. Last but not least is people management. You may not be someone’s boss right now, but understanding how to manage a team of people is a vital skill for the future.
By the end, you should have a clear idea of what it takes to become a top-rated product manager. And you’ll know how to put every tip and trick into action.
