In this episode, I invited Elena Chen onto the podcast.
Elena is a lead product manager for Google Play Points Rewards, the loyalty program of Google Play, a multi-billion dollar marketplace. Outside of work, she is passionate about sharing her learnings about PM leadership and people empowerment with a broader audience. She is an ICF-certified leadership coach and a Youtuber. Prior to Google, she was an investment banker at J.P. Morgan and Credit Suisse. She holds an MBA and a Master of Education degree from Stanford University.
I loved Elena's radical honesty, humility and self-awareness that transpired through this episode, as we chatted about her "typical Chinese upbringing", working in the finance world and finding herself not happy nor fulfilled, going on the soul-searching journey that eventually led her to Stanford GSB, starting a coaching business, and being a Product Manager at Google. More importantly, we talked about her inner journey of wrestling with her tension between her need for safety and spaciousness and balancing her analytical, problem-solving nature with her empathy and creativity. Finally, Elena shared with us her secret to building self-worth that completely changed her life.
