Last Wednesday, we had the pleasure to host a webinar with Gibson Biddle, former VP Product at Netflix, titled “Hacking Your Product Leader Career”.
During the talk Gibson shared stories from his career and tips on how to have a scientific approach to your career progression.
Some key take-aways:
- Keep it simple. Understand your strengths and what you enjoy the most and focus on — 3 — of those skills. You can’t be excellent at everything
- Create a “board of directors” of mentors who can give you feedback on your career choices
- Have a scientific approach to your career. What’s your hypothesis?
- Always strive to be an “8”, i.e. 8/10 in job satisfaction. If you’re not happy, review your hypothesis
We’re now excited to share that Gibson will host another webinar, “Netflix’s 2020 Product Strategy”. This time in the beginning of June. June 3rd to be precise. Will we see you there?
