About This Class

Setting goals and not achieving them is the most frustrating issue people are facing when it comes to being (or not being) successful. If you used to set goals, but you did not achieve them (or "only" up to 75%), if you stopped setting goals and are now stuck in the land of mediocrity, if you want to grow yourself, your team's or your companies success, but don't know how, you have found the perfect class. This class is your practical guide how to work more focused, more motivated and with a higher productivity in your business by setting and realizing goals with the most powerful goal setting method used by many highly successful companies and individuals, called OKR (Objectives and Key Results). Achieve your goals... Achieving your goals is much easier than you think, if you know what you need to pay attention to and which mistakes to avoid. Yes, it's going to take a lot of work to implement the steps necessary to achieve your goal, but with the right goal setting (and tracking) method you are going to benefit from the motivation that comes when making progress! The class gives everyone, from an intern to the CEO, the necessary knowledge and tools to implement OKRs as your main goal setting tool. OKR at Google OKR is the method developed by Intel in the 1970s and implemented by Google in 1999 when they were some 60 people. 17 years later Google employs almost 60,000 people (growth factor 1,000x) and their goal setting principle is still the same: OKR. OKR is used by many fast growing companies all around the globe, from Google to Zenga, from MyMuesli to LinkedIn. Your coach My name is Axel Rittershaus.
