Culture can be a killer for OKRs, so are you measuring and consciously creating the right culture for growth?
Join team TBG for episode two of Giant Watch 

About this Event

Perhaps you’re just starting to consider OKRs and so would benefit from some early tips and hints about the kinds of cultural impacts you may come across. Perhaps you’re all set to enjoy the journey of bringing OKRs into your organisation and then as you start to implement you realise it isn’t working quite as you imagined. Perhaps you’re some way down the line and wondering what has gone wrong.

Wherever you are in your OKR journey, this webinar will help you consider how the current culture of your organisation will support their implementation. What you’ll learn:

– What can show up in our cultures that is both helpful and helpful for bringing OKRs to life successfully

– Why measuring culture matters just as much as other measurements you value, and probably more

– How who we are on the inside shows up in how we are on the outside, and how we can intervene at a values level to shift mindsets, change behaviour and evolve the culture of our teams and organisations

– A values-based framework for measuring culture, and providing data on a whole host of other useful aspects

Georgia Parker, the lead for our TBG culture practice will provide expert input to this webinar, hosted by Lawrence. What we know is that introducing OKRs is often the catalyst to a much-needed dialogue and focus on culture and measuring culture is a very helpful starting point for this.
