At start-ups, founders are struggling with how to maintain their corporate culture as their businesses mature. CEOs are more concerned with culture than ever before. They understand that with today’s workforce culture is an important consideration. Cultural fit is playing a major role in the employment decisions of employees and potential employees.
So how does a company develop a culture that embraces their Mission, their Vision, and core values? Read on to learn how OKRs and CFRs can serve as a roadmap to building your corporate culture.
How to Develop a Culture of High-Performance and Achievement
In his New York Times bestseller, “Measure What Matters,” author John Doerr states that the combination of OKRs and CFRs “provide a blueprint to design and build a positive culture.” Objectives and Key Results, coupled with a dedicated OKR Software platform, feature transparency, and visibility which create alignment and engagement. The Conversations and Feedback of CFRs in tracking, monitoring, and scoring OKRs, create accountability. Transparency, alignment, and accountability are the cornerstones of a culture of achievement.
Deploy committed (attainable) OKRs as the business requires. But, also be sure to set aspirational goals to engage and motivate the workforce to strive for more stellar results. Through the Recognition component of CFRs reinforce teamwork, motivation, and morale. Encourage peer to peer recognition based on the 360° visibility of other team’s and department’s OKRs.
Through alignment, silos are eliminated, redundancies cease, and departments being at cross-purposes become a thing of the past. In their place you have a culture of teamwork and collaboration, aligned towards the same goals and objectives, to deliver the high-performance you are seeking.
