        This course should be mandatory tech onboarding for everyone especially Product People (PMs, TL, UX, DS) at FAANG. Satish breaks down complex topics and makes them approachable and even attractive. He does not talk about fancy new techniques but practical things you can do everyday to turbocharge your PM and tech career.

        This course goes deep into soft skill areas that most professionals seek or need help on but find very hard and time-consuming to get clear insights, methods and frameworks. Satish has thoughtfully put together content and narrative that elegantly deconstructs a given aspect and provides practical guidance. I highly recommend this course!

        Every company should invest in sending their employees of all levels to this workshop. The hands-on exercises were some of the best segments of the course. Satish modeled a great example by using personal stories to help drive home many abstract concepts that might have been really hard to understand without the help of concrete examples.

        Since I am an individual contributor and not a product manager, I was initially unsure if the course will be the right use of my time. After going through the course I feel it helped me understand multiple principles/concepts/frameworks that will be extremely useful for my work in influencing others and bringing the right outcome for my company.

        This course is a lifetime investment. The content is authentic, humanized, simplified and easy to follow.

        Satish skillfully dissects the behind-the-scenes structures and interactions at most organizations and equips you with actionable tools and frameworks to navigate them in a mutually beneficial way. But it's not all theory. He makes this all accessible by connecting the dots by sharing real-world examples that were profoundly insightful, too.
