#28: In this insightful episode, I have the pleasure of chatting with Petra Wille, an independent product leadership coach and author of Strong Product People. We discuss the benefits and importance of creating a product community of practice, which can help product leads free up time and focus on people development. Listen in as Petra shares her research on this topic, including interviews and a survey of over 100 people, and learn how such communities can help product people experience mastery, share best practices, and support onboarding.

We also explore the significance of psychological safety in product teams and the role of vulnerability in strong leadership. Petra explains how to encourage reflection and continuous learning in teams, even when budgets are limited, and the importance of contributing to the larger product community.

Don't miss this opportunity to gain valuable insights into creating an environment where everyone can feel safe and secure, allowing for diversity and growth in the workplace.

Finally, we discuss the challenges of transitioning from individual contributor to product leader and the essential human skills needed for a successful transition. Petra shares her advice on giving feedback, creating clarity of thought, and mastering the art of non-violent communication.

Tune in to learn more about the components of effective product leadership and how to foster a strong product culture through feedback and communication.
