Ego is a product-killer. It’s what keeps us from empathizing with users and building the right thing. It doesn’t always start from a place of selfish intentions, but if we don’t keep ourselves in check, we can quickly slip away from creating products that benefit users.

Tony Poon, Chief Product Officer at R-Zero, joins the show to share how he battles his own ego in product leadership. We discuss balancing intuition and data-driven decisions, the challenge of product management in a new market, and the importance of listening well.
