What makes you a good product manager?

I enable everyone around me to be comfortable sharing their ideas candidly with me and with each other. Silencing one voice in the room will lead to many other silenced voices and a team that's afraid to share ideas. Facilitating efficient feedback sessions and giving everyone a space to speak has served me well.

What do you love about being a product manager?

I love creating consensus with my team and within the company. I love talking to customers on a daily basis. I love vouching for their needs with evidence. I love the responsibility of making sure the product shipped is the best it can be and getting my team's back (via the voice of the customer) if elements are called into question by others internally.

What do you hate about being a product manager?

This doesn't happen often, but exec requests (and deadlines) given to product with a lack of data or reasoning behind them can temporarily off-track things. But we must adapt.
