OKR Training & Coaching That Ensures You Succeed

ZOKRI

Getting the right know-how seeded, and then having scalable ways of delivering the consistent application of that knowledge ensures you can spread OKR best practices from tens to hundreds of people, and then even thousands. Getting this done in months not years is transformational. Which is where our OKR consultants come in.

  • Training and coaching gets you up the learning and OKR maturity curve faster
  • We know how to implement OKRs fast and at scale
  • The faster they are up and running the faster you benefit

It’s much harder to re-launch OKRs than to get them right first time.

OKR Training That Shortens The OKR Adoption Curve

ZOKRI

We have a team of OKR consultants and trainers. Some have worked in companies like Google and Amazon, others have founded and run fast growth startups. 

The ‘right fit’ coach will work with you and help you learn the basics before moving to drafting your first OKRs and running check-ins and retrospectives.

Together we will roll-out OKRs correctly the the first time and fast. Let world-class OKR consultants guide you through the OKR adoption curve and ensure you avoid potential pitfalls.

  • Learn the right way first time
  • Avoid common mistakes
  • Have a neutral expert voice to support and manage stakeholders
  • Access learning materials that can be used in-house for new starters
  • Invest in learning and up-skilling in this business critical area

It won’t even take long or cost a lot. It’s relatively inexpensive and what your get in return is transformational for your company, with employees gaining skills that will serve them throughout their careers.

OKR Coaching That Builds On Tried & Tested Growth Drivers

ZOKRI

Not leveraging proven growth drivers can leave you uncompetitive. Our coaches understand the relationship between achieving goal clarity and the ability to talk in teams in a ‘safe’ way about what your goals ‘could’ and ‘should’ be. 

Make Ambition Normal

Not being ambitious can throttle innovations and slow learning. We help team work out when to be bold and ambitious and when on 100% is good enough.

Learn OKR From Experts

ZOKRI

Learning OKR the right way ensures you avoid the few pitfalls that organizations can find themselves in if they are not careful. So we invite you to learn OKR best-practices from coaches that have used and coached OKRs across different types of organizations.

We usually begin with some light theory, and by sharing the plan and deployment parameters, with an open discussion on how this will operate in practice. This will provide the context to learn by doing, and the latter half of the workshop training will be structured around developing a real draft Objective and some supporting Key Results, minimising time spent on theory or examples from other companies which may not be applicable.

We finish by coaching the team on how to ensure they are aligned and committed to the OKRs in the coming days.

First Quarter Team Support

ZOKRI

We can support each team to run a complete OKR cycle. Each cycle consists of these components:

Start of quarter kickoff

Each team kicks off their quarter and shares their OKRs with the whole team and any dependencies. This is usually done in a team meeting. We will support the team leaders in planning and running this communication to ensure the quarter starts well and everyone understands what the OKRs mean, and how they will be used.

 

Weekly checkins and Mid-quarter review

Regular check-ins and monitoring progress during the cycle are key to success with OKRs. We will review the regular team meeting agenda and coach the team on how to ensure OKRs are getting the right attention on a regular basis. Additionally, we’ll help set up a mid-quarter OKR review to formalise the process and add rigour.

 

Reflect and Reset

At the end of the cycle and beginning of the following one, we run a retrospective workshop to review what went well and what needs changing, and help plan changes to be integrated. This links well with the following cycles’ Set and Align workshop where new OKRs are set.

 

Establish A Rhythm That Drives Growth

The right conversations at the right time deliver results – OKRs are the framework for these conversations. We will work with you to work out and establish a rhythm that works for you.

OKR Training With Minimum Downtime & Overhead

We’ve perfected the OKR training process to take less than four hours per person. Most of this time is spent working on the business rather than learning theory.

 

Change Weariness Solved

We’ll make the OKR training fun and engaging, and the change will have minimal overhead. We’ll help you select and motivate the right people and teams for best uptake.  We have found that moving from ‘what’ to ‘why’ and ‘how’ will ensure value is demonstrated quickly and your people will be more engaged.
