Synopsis:

"This book is useful, actionable, and actually fun to read! If you want to get your team aligned around real, measurable goals, Radical Focus will teach you how to do it quickly and clearly." - Laura Klein, Principal, Users Know

An actionable business book in the form of a fable.

Radical Focus tackles the OKR movement and better goal setting through the powerful story of Hanna and Jack’s struggling tea startup. When the two receive an ultimatum from their only investor, they must learn how to employ Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) with radical focus to get the right things done. Will they be able to accomplish the few critical actions that will save their startup? Or will they end up mired in distractions and choices as their time runs out?

The author pulls from her experience with Silicon Valley’s hottest companies to teach practical insights on goal setting in fable form. How do you inspire a diverse team to work together, going all out in pursuit of a single, challenging goal? How do you stay motivated despite setbacks and failures? As you see through Hanna and Jack’s story, it’s about creating a framework for regular check-ins, key results, and most of all, the beauty of a good fail. Wodtke adds a bonus section in the second half of the book to lay out her most practical insights into applying Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) to your specific workplace and challenges.

Ready to move your team in the right direction? Read this book together, and learn Wodtke’s powerful system of decision making to create your focus and find success.

Book Description Boxes & Arrows. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 166 pages. Dimensions: 8.0in. x 5.0in. x 0.4in.How do you inspire a diverse team to work together, going all out in pursuit of a single, challenging goal How do you get your team to commit to bold goals How do you stay motivated despite setbacks and disappointments And what do you do when it looks like youre headed for failure In Radical Focus, Christina Wodtke combines her hard earned experience as an executive at Zynga, Linkedin and many of Silicon Valleys hottest companies to answer those questions. Its not about to-do lists and accountability charts. Its about creating a framework for regular check-ins, key results, and most of all, the beauty of a good fail and how to take a temporary disaster and turn it into a future success. In this book, Wodtke takes you through the fictional case study of Hanna and Jack, who are struggling to survive in their own startup. They fight shiny object syndrome, losing focus, and dealing with communication issues. After hard lessons, they learn the practical steps they need to do what must be done. The second half of the book demonstrates how to use Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) to help teams realize big goals in a methodical way, leaving nothing to chance. Laid out in a practical but compelling way, she makes the lessons of Hanna and Jacks story clear and actionable. Ready to move your team in the right direction Read this, and learn the system of creating your focus and finding success. Busy grinding without purpose is the secret death of too many startups. In this memorable story, Christina gives us a glimpse of a more satisfying kind of startup--still hard and chaotic but full of purpose and the chance to build something great. James Cham, Founder, Bloomberg Beta This book is useful, actionable, and actually fun to read! If you want to get your team aligned around real, measurable goals, Radical Focus will teach you how to do it quickly and clearly. -Laura Klein, Principal, Users Know Someone once told me that problems are just opportunities that havent presented themselves. Since I was introduced to OKRs, theyve been an invaluable tool for me, and our company. Christinas ideas have been instrumental, allowing me to better navigate the often ambiguous approach to goal setting and along the way creating a more open and accountable team and a clearer path for myself professionally. I personally cant thank her enough for the guidance. Scott Baldwin Director of Services, Yellow Pencil Radical Focus illustrates how to implement OKRs in an engaging, compact, realistic story. Best of all, Wodtke proves OKRs can be fun! Ben Lamorte, OKRs. com This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback.
