The OKR Podcast

Hosted by Deidre Paknad, WorkBoard CEO

The OKR Podcast is designed to help leaders-from-home use the OKR technique and other cutting-edge strategies to keep their distributed teams connected, aligned, and moving toward results.

While many recognize the power of Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) to foster trust based on transparency, not proximity, there is a dearth of information on how to do them well and reap their full benefit. That’s where this podcast comes in!
