Be the coach. Not a parent or a sergeant

Coach, Parent or Drill Sergeant?

As a product manager, you don’t have authority given. You earn it through actions and decisions and building relationships over time (among many other ways).

How you build those relationships is important long term, which is why i find this Picard tip useful.

You should be a coach, encouraging the team, working together with them to help in achieving their goals.
