Every product manager knows that they must wield the power of communication with great effect. After all, according to PMI’s annual global survey, communication is the #1 skill that employers are looking for in their project professionals. The way in which we present our ideas is critically important when speaking with our team, our stakeholders, and our vertical chain.

The best product managers have learned to engage their audiences with authenticity. They know how to tap into their ‘true impromptu self’. You can too, by learning to recognize and avoid the obstacles which stand in your way.
