The right OKR training can quickly turn your team members into OKR experts. But why should you go through this process?

Here at TBG, we believe anyone and everyone has the ability to become an OKR superstar. No matter whether you’re new to the OKR process, or you’re looking to refresh your knowledge, OKR training can provide you with the skills you need to effectively implement the methodology within your organisation.

Create OKR superstars within your organisation

So you’re ready to get started with the OKR process, but what’s the first step? There are a couple of options for you to choose from.

You could hire an OKR expert to help you create, implement and monitor your OKRs. Alternatively, you could provide your team members with OKR training so that you can run this process internally.

There are a whole host of benefits to both of these options, but in this article, we’re going to focus on the latter. OKR training can help you to:

  • Boost employee motivation
  • Boost your chances of long-term OKR success
  • Increase your chances of achieving consistent growth

The benefits of an OKR coach

OKR coaches are essentially those who understand the world of OKRs inside and out. They can help to support team members who are new to the process, as well as helping experienced teams streamline their OKR implementation.

OKR coaches can benefit your organisation in a number of ways. We’ve listed a few of these advantages below.

Regular OKR support

Implementing OKRs is far from easy, so it’s likely that you’ll need a helping hand from time to time to ensure everything is running smoothly. That’s where an OKR coach comes in.

Your coach can answer any questions or queries your team may have so that they feel confident enough to stretch and grow your business.

Provides motivation

The OKR process can be daunting for a number of reasons. Firstly, it encourages risk-taking and not all of your employees may be comfortable with this. Secondly, it’s a continuous process, therefore, it requires tenacity and drive to push through until you see results.

Fortunately, an OKR coach can provide you with the motivation you need to push through these challenges and achieve growth.
