If you are new to OKRs:

Forget everything you heard about goal setting. Ditch SMART.

Go for the champion and set your goals using OKR at our OKR bootcamp.

In this bestselling OKR 101 course, you’ll learn everything you need to know to set goals with OKRs, incorporate them into your life, and improve your future in both business and life.

Goal setting is great, but that’s only the first step. Achieving a goal is much harder and takes much longer.

Most goal setting techniques fail completely when it comes to helping you achieve your goals.

OKRs is most likely the number one ‘goal-setting-and-achieving-method’ the world is talking about. Google used Objectives and Key Results (OKR) almost from day one (they started with OKR in 1999 and still use it, helping them grow their employee base from 60 to more than 80,000 in 17 years) and they still use it – from the intern to the CEO.

No matter if you work on your own, in a small team, or  a corporate environment:

OKRs are your way to more productivity and better results – no matter your business!

With OKRs you’re going to achieve goals you always struggled with or never dared to approach.

In this course you’ll get

  • Videos
  • Examples for personal and business OKR
  • Checklists
  • Working materials
  • Templates for your own goal setting

to use OKRs effectively.

After completing this course

  • You’ll know exactly what OKRs are, how they work, and how you will benefit from them
  • You’ll define your professional and private goal based on the OKR principle
  • You’ll implement the simple but highly effective steps to take action to realize your goals
  • And, if you’re a leader, you’ll know exactly how to use OKRs as a leadership tool

The earlier you define your OKR, the sooner you will achieve your goals.

The Q&A board will assist you on your path from beginner to OKR master!


Your coach, OKR expert Axel Rittershaus, is working with highly successful executives, corporates, and individuals in 30 countries as a leadership coach and advisor. The most successful of them use OKR.

Let’s get started and make you more successful and happy by setting and achieving your goals with OKR.
