This is probably the most honest and authentic episode of the Project Management for the Masses podcast I’ve ever published. Yes, today we will talk about the value of coaching. But there’s much more.
To talk about this topic I bring you the prolific Lara Hogan. She also happens to be my professional coach.
We start with a brief conversation about coaching and how it’s different than mentoring.
From that, we jump into a real-life coaching session between Lara and me. It gets very real, and I hope it gives you an insight of what is like to work with a great coach like Lara.
Lara is an author, public speaker, and coach for managers and leaders across the tech industry. As a founder of Wherewithall, Lara and her team run workshops, roundtables, and trainings on core management skills like delivering great feedback and setting clear expectations. Before Wherewithall, Lara spent a decade growing emerging leaders as the VP of Engineering at Kickstarter and an Engineering Director at Etsy. She champions management as a practice, building fast websites, and celebrating your achievements with donuts (and sometimes sushi). Her latest book, Resilient Management, is here to help those who find themselves responsible for supporting a team of people.

I’ve recently been enjoying more focus and being more productive without increased anxiety and hurry, all due to Magic Mind.
Magic Mind is the world’s first productivity drink. It is NOT an energy drink.
After 10 to 30 minutes of taking this little 2-ounce drink, I start getting into the flow zone and stop thinking about procrastination. It’s incredible how it helps me to just calmly start getting things done.
I really recommend you give it a try.
