Lena Sesardic

Product Manager, Content Creator & Speaker
I've been a product manager, mainly in B2B tech, since 2017 and can help you figure out the 20% of effort you need to leverage to get 80% of your results. Working with engineers, managing stakeholders, motivating your team in times of low morale, I've been through it all and know how to help. My product management experience is mainly in Fintech and in entrepreneurial environments.

Craig Zingerline

Founder @ Growth University & Growth Minded | CPO @ Sandboxx | Head of Growth @ Upside Travel
I've built over 100 sites and apps in my 20 year career, and am currently Chief Product Officer at Sandboxx. I'm a regular speaker at Product School events, and run a Product Bootcamp for entrepreneurs looking to get their product to market. I believe great products need great growth, and I tend to look at product development from a growth mindset from the start. I also generally advise on building market testable features, and launching early to get feedback from real users.

As a microsoft PM early in my career, technology/coding to me was simply a means to an end - to build a great PRODUCT that ppl actually use. Great products are a delight to use. They are anchored in solving a clear pain point that i have - and other products just don't full solve it.

As a consultant and agency owner building software for clients, I've had many years experience working with and managing products for others and more recently being adjacent to product teams in my role of Community and Customer support -- I've seen how valuable having cross-functional team members involved in product manage can be and would love to talk with you about any of the challenges of product development and management.

Below are a few scenarios where talking to a product management mentor can help.

  • If you are new to product management and feel overwhelmed and want to be mentored by an experienced product manager
  • If you have trouble communicating with various stakeholders and want advice on how to deal with situations of indecisiveness
  • If you’re frustrated that your organization doesn’t value agile lean principles and are stuck in their old disorganized and inefficient ways
  • If you want a second opinion on your product roadmap, there are certain features that could potentially be shaved off
  • If you need help with user research and making sense of the data from user testing specialists who focus on that element

We have a very detailed filter system for you to sort the mentors.  Filters like areas of expertise, tools, language, price and industry.

Then the third option is to just ask us!  Give it a try right now and ask us on live chat 🙂

Three choices:

  • Skype
  • Zoom
  • Google Hangouts

Mentors and mentees are able to set their communication tools in their profile settings.

It is a good idea to connect with the other person once the session is accepted and the details are given. This ensures that the correct details were given and when it is time to start, you can start on time.

Here are some tips on how to get the maximum bang for your time on growth mentor calls.

  • Come into this with realistic expectations. They’re mentors, not magicians.
  • Ask your mentor if they’d be cool with you recording your screen with Loom
  • Give contextual information to help paint the picture of your current situation.
  • Growth mentors will be asking you lots of questions, answer them as honest as possible.
  • Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries of question asking. Be inquisitive. Stories are gold.
  • Don’t feel pressure, just relax. There’s no right/wrong way to do this. Avoid binary thinking.
  • Try to form mental patterns, especially if you speak with multiple mentors. Pay attention to metadata.
  • Embrace alternative views. Ask the mentors to play devil’s advocate and challenge your assumptions.
  • Be friendly and authentic. If you’re likable, the mentors will be your biggest supporters (even after the call is over).

Yup!  Many of the mentors offer monthly coaching packages for members who want to really dive deep into a specific area.

Each mentor creates their own package so what they offer and the price vary from mentor to mentor.  You can find their coaching info at the top of their profile.
