    When I've managed teams, I had to effectively empathize and support my team - while meeting company goals and objectives.

    I agree, so I wonder if maybe you stopped reading before getting to this part:

    "A good product manager communicates priorities clearly and makes sure that those priorities are aligned with the product strategy and overall company objectives. [...] They facilitate discussions with their team and balance customer, business, and technology needs to come up with a flexible but clear set of priorities for an upcoming work period."

    openly communicating down to them

    As mentioned in a previous comment, I'm just not on board with the "communicating down to them" thing. Again, that might work for some companies/organizations, and that's fine. But don't dismiss the success we've had by going in a bit of a different "we're all in this together" direction.
