Leadership, business psychologist Doug Gray, PhD, is author of the new book, Objectives + Key Results (OKR) Leadership: How to Apply Silicon Valley’s Secret Sauce to Your Career, Team or Organization. Having worked with over 10,000 leaders for more than two decades, Dr. Gray recognized that there was a desperate need for outcome-based leadership development that could actually deliver quantifiable results. In OKR Leadership, Dr. Gray reveals the “Secret Sauce” Silicon Valley uses to transform leadership, boost employee engagement and motivate new generations of managers—and does so in an easily digestible, action-oriented way. It breaks down simply: OKR Leadership is comprised of Objectives (O), which should be qualitative, subjective and significant; and Key Results (KRs), which are ideally three to five quantitative measures verifying an objective’s status with hard numbers.
