COACHING

I love working with product managers and founders to help them multiply their impact.

JANINE FARAH

Senior Product Manager

I introduced Janine to Product Management, and later supported her as she transitioned from being a Senior Trainer to her first product management role at FactSet.

While at Huddle, I coached Janna through her new role as Junior Product Manager as she moved over from her role as Marketing Communications Specialist.

DANIEL HOUGH

Product Manager
Marvel Prototyping

I coached Dan through his transition from Team Lead to full time Product Manager at Marvel, helping shorten the period where he was doing both roles at the same time.

 

I give product managers and founders the frameworks and tools to help them find the answers, regardless of their industry.
Businesses tend to be early stage, seed through series B, or older companies going through a journey to becoming product lead.
So far I've coached clients across fintech, legaltech, opstech and the security industry.

Coaching has been a massive help to boosting my skill set, my confidence, my ability to manage others - and helping me see my own future in the world of Product. Susana is a truly inspiring, intelligent coach who brings empathy, experience, curiosity and a love of Product to the table - I'd highly recommend her!

Nicole Bianchi, Group Product Manager, Chip

Coachee

I couldn’t recommend Susana highly enough and consider myself really lucky to have been coached by her. The sessions were fun, engaging, taught me a huge amount and have made me a better person. I learned new frameworks for thinking about Product Management and how to apply them to the needs of my team, helping me to focus on what really matters and improve outcomes for our company. Thank you for the help and support and look forward to continuing to work together!

Tom, Product Manager, Seed Stage B2B

Coachee

Susana partnered with me to coach one of my recently promoted reports.
The biggest impact from coaching was a boost in confidence with problem discovery, especially with undefined problems. I feel I can now give my report bigger more complex problems and I can trust her to tackle them independently.
She also got better at handling complex conversations with her direct reports.
And finally, she has taken a more collaborative approach with design during the ideation and definition stage. She is now working on a new feature and I am impressed at how she is collaborating with design.

Corinna Lamberti, VP Product, Chip

Manager of Coachee

When I first looked into coaches for my product team, I was sceptical.  However, working with Susana as coach for my team has been fantastic – she is a highly intelligent, empathetic and serious operator, and would be an asset to any team as a coach.  Her nuanced and thoughtful feedback about how to help grow the product personalities in the team have been invaluable, and I have been happy to re-engage her multiple times for new hires (and repeat sessions). Couldn’t recommend highly enough.

Stephen, CEO, Seed Stage B2B

Manager of Coachees

I'm thankful for the guidance and support Susana has given me over these months. Some of it product, some of it not - she's been helpful in ways she might not be aware of.
In particular, the after-session notes are incredibly valuable.

Susana forced me to challenge my experience of product and the biases I have developed in that time. I'm not sure you could ask much more from a coach than that.

Coachee

Working with Susana has given me the opportunity to explore a wide range of topics with an experienced Product Manager, who is eager to share lessons learnt from her personal experience and to encourage her mentees to develop and grow in their current roles.

Joshua Porée, Product Manager, Nexus FrontierTech

Coachee

My first coach in the business world, so I was not sure what to expect. My sessions and topics were based on the challenges and goals that I needed to achieve within my new role as product manager.  I threw a range of topics and problems at Susana. Like any good coach, Susana was quick to adapt and very insightful.  She provided the experience and resources I needed to help me grow into the role and to better understand the many facets of product management.

PRODUCT MANAGER COACHING

I work with early career product managers, recent career switchers and first product managers in the business reporting to the founders.

Many don't have any product management leadership to learn from, either because they report to the CEO, or they are the only product manager in the business. Having a product coach drastically accelerates their learning. It has multiplicative effect on the quality of their work with their teams and outcomes for the business.

I partner very closely with the product manager's manager, typically the VP Product or CEO, to be an extension of their development plan. After each session the manager receives a summary of the topics covered, resources shared and suggested actions to help the coachee develop.
