As you continue your regular reflection habit, be honest about what’s going well and not going well. Ask for help where it’s needed. Tell your teammates when they do something great.
Teams should consistently be prompted to provide their confidence scores and updates to their OKRs to have open and honest conversations on the likelihood of hitting their Key Results. This helps teams better surface leading indicators of failure and find ways around them, and also serves as a reminder that OKRs are learning opportunities, and that hitting or missing their targets has value. By the same token, consistent review of progress allows for a celebration of successes along the way, and recognition of work well-done.
Creating a transparent and proactive team culture around your OKRs helps not only with the likelihood of success, but also makes the process of closing out and having a retrospective for your OKRs easier since the process around learning from them has already been established.
Keep your teams motivated, happy and pulling in the same direction throughout the OKR process.
