Praxis has developed a product leadership program that transcends traditional product skill-focused methods. By creating a servant leadership model, Praxis helps establish a sturdy foundation for Product Teams, providing the skills, support, and actionable steps needed to navigate everything from a product launch to product development in the time of COVID-19 and beyond.

From our research, we found typical product leaders, even with great skills, often face challenges aligning the different perspectives and priorities across their organization and resolving conflicts with their role and personal vision and aspirations.

From our research, we found typical product leaders, even with great skills, often face challenges aligning the different perspectives and priorities across their organization and resolving conflicts with their role and personal vision and aspirations. At a time where we are collaborating more than ever, Praxis is redefining the methods in which we communicate effectively to achieve more, both as a Product Team and in cross-organization partnerships. Through the core principles of self-awareness, interpersonal communication, and skill mastery, Praxis helps organizations build healthy teams who can achieve breakthrough results.

Praxis launched its first cohort-based program in early 2020. In its short time, the program has helped product leaders from Microsoft, PayPal, and more, take their product management skills to the next level, and become servant-leaders.

Our structure is unique, instead of a single point in time training, we offer regular cohort-based meetings, with smaller group breakouts, structured curriculum, and individualized 1:1 support to focus on core goals and outcomes.

Based on the transformative feedback of our participants and the success of this cohort-based model, we are now planning our next cohort for Product Leaders.

For leaders at every level…

  • Product Management Executives
  • Senior to Principal Product Managers
  • Early in career product managers
  • New to career
  • Women, people of color, and underrepresented populations in tech

Our program intentionally creates a cohort of product managers with blended experience. Our cohorts pair experienced leaders (Google, Facebook, Amazon, for example) and new to discipline leaders from non-traditional tech firms—our blended model reinforces our servant leadership principle and that rigorous product management skills are with the individual, not the credentials.

Who want to…

  • Become a servant-leader and better serve their organization, customers, and people
  • Pursue mastery of product management fundamentals
  • Be challenged and pushed to better align your product towards the outcomes you achieve
  • Understand better the mechanics behind breakthrough products

Praxis for Leaders is a free, invite-only development program available through remote conferencing and classroom management software. Our program for leaders is an intense 9-week program that meets on Wednesday evenings.

Why Praxis?

Praxis Product Leadership was founded by Mikal Lewis, a seasoned Product Executive with Microsoft, Nordstrom, and startup product leadership experience. Mikal has lead teams that have achieved success on several scales, but it’s been through his passion for coaching where the most transformational impacts have taken place. As a product leader, Mikal developed a skill for helping even the most experienced product management, design, engineering individual contributors and leaders achieve more.

Praxis Product Leadership was founded by Mikal Lewis, a seasoned Product Executive with Microsoft, Nordstrom, and startup product leadership experience.

Mikal found that the key is to rewire the mechanics of how teams approach Product Management, away from the tactics of how—into the first principles of why. The outcome is Praxis Product Leadership, a first-principles, servant-leadership approach to product leadership. With product leaders are often balancing coaching, executing, and shepherding vision, especially on leaner teams. And while coaching is the highest leverage tool, it also gives way to more urgent priorities. Praxis helps you and your product reach the next level.
