Resilience for Product People

11. November 2019 @ 9:30 - 12:30

Life, as a product leader, can be stressful. Juggling demands from multiple stakeholders with conflicting needs. Looking after a team that’s full of humans who need care and attention. Battling with peers to keep the customer at the forefront of your decision making.

And sometimes things don’t go the way you want them to. You lose the argument. You lose the employee. You lose points with your boss. You lose customers, despite your best efforts. Maybe you even lose your job.

How do you bounce back from these losses, both big and small? How do you sustain your energy, and continue to be resourceful?

You can’t make life less stressful, but you can learn to manage your energy and perspective, and to bounce back more readily. In this workshop we’ll explore the 5 angles of resilience and learn small changes you can make to increase your own resilience.


Who is it for?

Product, Design and Tech managers and leaders (like Head of Product, Head of Design, CPOs or CTOs etc.) and other people interested in increasing their resilience

Key Take-aways

Learning to manage your emotional, physical and mental energy both feels good, and makes you a more effective leader.


By the end of the workshop you will be able to:

  • describe what resilience is and what it’s not
  • recognise the 5 dimensions of resilience
  • assess your own current state within each of these 5 dimensions
  • apply techniques to implement positive change in your resilience

Hands-on exercises

  • One-to-one, small group, and large group exercises.



All participants will receive a Product Academy Certificate for this course.  



The workshop includes a coffee break with snacks.

This workshop will be held in English.
