Event description


Are you struggling to consistently hit OKRs for your company?

Are you exhausting your team? Disappointing your boss?

Goal setting with OKRS can be an effective way to focus your team on achieving results, but many managers and teams struggle with issues like:

    • Estimating when KRs can realistically happen, given the capabilities of the team

    • Ensuring OKRs don't just read like a "to do" list

    • Coaching the gap when KRs are at risk of failure

    • Refining OKRs in light of new info and insights

In this 90-minute lunch and learn, you'll learn the critical few steps for successfully aligning and designing the work of your team with your organization’s broader objectives.

Your host, Dr. Shannon Arvizu, CEO of Epic Teams and tech sociologist, will share the top ways that successful managers in fast growing tech companies set and achieve impactful goals regularly. These methods go beyond typical "OKR frameworks" and are based on goal science and team performance.


  • Start with the End in Mind: Create OKRs that meet the needs of your team's stakeholders

  • Create an Action Plan: Identify roles, estimate work, and determine milestones

  • Design Your Team's Feedback Loop: Determine which indicators give the clearest signal for tracking OKR progress - and what's just noise

  • Coach the Gap: Learn how to coach your team on goal progress to ensure that targets are met, without overburdening people or decreasing motivation

Bonus! OKRs Done Right Field Guide

Managers who attend the online lunch and learn receive a field guide with powerful tools and practices for setting their team up for goal success, checking the gaps, and reflecting for learning and insights. This guide includes 1:1 coaching scripts to use with individual team members for realtime improvements and sustained goal progress.
