Course overview

OKRs that Work in Practice

Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) have exploded across the business world in the last couple of decades, helping start-ups and FAANG companies alike achieve outsized results. Yet, implementing them successfully is tricky. Do the process correctly, and you'll supercharge your alignment and progress. Do them wrong, and you'll waste time and frustrate your team.


If you're tired of setting goals for your team that never quite materialize, or you've tried (and failed) at OKRs before, this is the course for you. Christina Wodtke literally wrote the book on OKRs and regularly takes high-priced coaching calls with CEOs and directors wanting to improve their businesses. Now, you can get the same insight in a forum with your peers.


Join us as Christina walks you through, step by step, how to make OKRs a goal-achieving system. The secret is the cadence, the set of routines that pull your team along to regular, steady progress.


Learn:


*the detailed framework for setting inspiring Objectives and useful Key Results.

*the exact weekly habits and rituals that turn your team into high achievers.

*the most common implementation mistakes and how to avoid them.

*exactly how to decide on one Objective for radical focus and maximum results.

*how to recover if your first goal goes down in flames.

*how to "pivot, persevere, or perish" in time to set the next quarter's goals.

*metrics thinking and what to do if you don’t have good data.

*why you should NEVER cascade OKRs and what to do instead, and

*how to cultivate a learning mindset to supercharge your results.




If you're tired of waiting for the Goal Fairy to deliver your team's goals under your pillow, join us. See how the world's biggest companies use OKRs (with radical focus) to drive goal achievement week by week.

What you’ll get out of this course

Go deep on the key elements of OKRs

Learn the practice of radical focus, and how a single inspiring Objective drives outsized results. Use metrics thinking to choose a meaningful KR for your team to track their progress against and understand how and when to adjust your tactics.

Learn the rhythm of execution

The difference between goal setters and goal achievers is the cadence of check-ins. Establish Monday meetings, Friday celebrations, and regular health and metrics monitoring to facilitate hard conversations, progress, and learning.

Plan out your year, adjust every quarter

Huge goals are made one quarter at a time. Learn how to set OKRs efficiently at the beginning of the quarter and assess at the end. Do you "pivot, persevere, or perish" for next quarter? Leverage this quarter to drive the next.
