Product Management Coaching

I coach people who are new to product management, experienced product people, and product leaders looking to level up.

If this is your first venture or product manager role, it can be daunting to figure out how to manage your products by yourself.

Perhaps your manager isn’t a product person and you just need someone to talk to who understands what you do.

If you’re a founder or C-level executive, I can coach you in product thinking, leadership and strategy.

I will help you learn to avoid the pitfalls of managing a technology product and its delivery team.

You can use a one-hour coaching session with me to:

  • learn a specific product management skill;
  • explore possible solutions to a particular business problem;
  • develop your product strategy;
  • plan out your personal career development plan; and
  • help you prepare for your product manager interview, including mock interviews.

All coaching is conducted in strictest confidence.

    “In my opinion, nothing beats learning from real life experience and Jock has demonstrated an ability to advise me on how best to gain what I need whilst also providing a clear perspective on what he may have done differently given the chance.

    “Overall, he’s been a great place to bounce ideas off and has further increased my energy and interest as a product leader. I would highly recommend Jock to anybody looking to improve themselves professionally and learn skills that books and websites generally cannot teach.”
