"As we navigate our career, we come across a diverse range of constraints, cultures, people, and variables that are beyond our control. However, as we train for our career as a Product Manager, it is crucial to focus not only on frameworks, functional and technical skills, and domain knowledge, but also on developing a set of skills that go beyond these aspects. Our ability to excel in our work stems from Emotional Intelligence (EQ) - the capacity to comprehend and adapt to the complexities of human interactions and environments, adjusting our approaches to accommodate these constraints. It is important to note that despite the abundance of LinkedIn posts, YouTube videos, and numerous articles that often present an idealized perspective, believing that possessing solely hard skills makes one a competent Product Manager is a fallacy. The essence of the ""Eigenvalues of a PM"" talk is to highlight a few practical skills that can enable Product Managers to leverage their hard skills and achieve new levels of excellence in their careers. By embracing these skills, PMs can navigate the dynamic landscape of their profession with confidence and effectiveness."
