OKRs for Individual Contributor

Aspire

The first step to excel at work is by picking up goals that are slightly difficult. If you always pick up easy goals, you may come across as less hungry and this will affect your career growth.

By mixing aspirational and committed OKRs you aspire for more and perform better at work.
💡Pro-tip: Pick up 2-3 Committed OKRs and 1-2 Aspirational OKRs in a quarter

Align

Aligning your Objectives helps you to understand how your work impacts your company’s progress. This alignment is furthermore important when you are working in projects where other teams are involved.

By aligning you OKRs with other teams’ OKRs, you can call out dependancies in a transparent and visible manner and help fix troubled spots quickly.

Aligning your OKRs with your manager, team’s and company OKR’s is essential for your success
💡Pro-tip: 100% alignment kills agility & creativity. Have at least 1-2 unaligned OKRs.

Contribute

Once you add & align your OKRs, the next step is recording & communicating your contribution. This step requires discipline and rigour in terms of weekly progress updates to your OKRs, 1:1 meetings with your manager.

Such OKR cadence will help in proactively surfacing any blockers that potentially stop you from achieving your OKRs.

It is very important to link your day-to-day work tools like Jira, ClickUp, Trello, Zoho to Key Results so that there is a single source of truth for your manager to evaluate.
💡Pro-tip: Always ensure that Key Results can be measurable with data from your day-to-day work tools. Don’t worry 😊. We got you covered with 100+ integrations.
