What I wish somebody had told me when I started working as a product manager is: “Don’t be a hero.” Self-styled “visionary” product managers are dangerous — which is why I advise against hiring PM candidates who fire off S**** J*** quotes during job interviews. Product management is fundamentally about making connections and creating understanding across different roles, not about telling people what to do. It’s a supportive role, not a visionary role. Being asked “what should we work on next” may have made me feel good temporarily, but it usually meant that I was not actually doing a very good job as a PM.
