Summary

What is it about the top tech product companies such as Amazon, Apple, Google, Netflix, and Tesla that enables their record of consistent innovation? 

Most people think it's because these companies are somehow able to find and attract a level of talent that makes this innovation possible. But the real advantage these companies have is not so much who they hire, but rather how they enable their people to work together to solve hard problems and create extraordinary products. 

As legendary Silicon Valley coach - and coach to the founders of several of today's leading tech companies - Bill Campbell said, "Leadership is about recognizing that there's a greatness in everyone, and your job is to create an environment where that greatness can emerge". The goal of Empowered is to provide you, as a leader of product management, product design, or engineering, with everything you'll need to create just such an environment.  

A natural companion to the best seller Inspired, Empowered tackles head-on the reason why most companies fail to truly leverage the potential of their people to innovate: product leadership.

Must Read for all Product Leaders

This book is a must read/listen for all product leaders. I’m energized to be a better product leader and have the tools to do so. I was delighted to hear Marty as the narrator; it felt like being in a training or seminar with him.

Great follow-up to Inspired!

Marty does a great job narrating and both he and and Chris knock it out of the park with this book! I can’t wait to apply all of the leadership lessons. For anyone who has read or listened to Inspired, this is a MUST for ongoing product management career development.

so much repetition that it got boring

This book had some golden nuggets, but it was too repetitive. and if you've read Inspired, moat of the content overlapped with that book so that there were very little anything new. the book would not have lost any of the substance by being 1/4 of the length.
