Helping Product Teams Get Better Results By Putting People First - Interview with Adam Thomas - EP 39

How does the level of trust after a decision is made impact product teams (and other teams in your organization too)? How much waste might be happening in your organization because of cognitive biases and what are practical ways to avoid falling into the traps of these biases when it comes to decision making?

We explored these questions and many more with Adam Thomas, a product person and technologist based in Harlem, NY who is focused on strategy, team organization, and product management. Adam is currently the Lead Product Manager over at SmartRecruiters, a columnist at BuiltIn, and also shares weekly product management tips and other fun resources in his newsletter.

Adam believes that product management isn’t just about getting done what’s on the roadmap; it’s fundamentally about people. So he looks at things in a way that leverages behavioral science, psychology, philosophy, and more to build extraordinary teams that thoughtfully bake culture into what they are developing.

In this episode of the In Trust podcast, we talk to Adam about how he helps product teams get better results by putting people first. His practical perspectives and astute observations apply far beyond product management. Whether you’re a product person or a leader in a different domain, you’ll want to give this podcast a listen and take notes.
