OKRs do not achieve themselves. Effective Leadership and management along with teamwork excellence are required to achieve challenging OKRs.

It is very important to set effective OKRs yet they mean nothing if execution is poor or non-existent. This highly practical OKR leadership course teaches you how to lead your team toward OKR execution and realize the company’s vision.

The engagement levels of team members as well as the ability to effectively communicate (communication with a return on investment) during check-ins, meetings, and coaching are critical elements of OKR success, and our practically orientated OKR leader course will support you in coaching team members toward success.

Learn the basics of OKRs and how you can achieve your strategies, mission, and vision with Objectives and Key Results.
