Our secret to business results is combining OKRs with human accountability and KIWIs.
We can do so much. But we often don’t know if what we are doing is actually working. Heron helps you turn your initiatives into business results you can pursue with clarity. We do this with OKRs (Objectives and Key Results), a neat trick from California.
When pursuing our goals, we don’t want to go so fast that we “fall off the wagon.” Key Wellness Indicators, or KIWIs, act as early warnings to help us manage our stress. By maintaining our work-life balance, we can stay focused on long term goals.
It is easy to pursue our goals when we are doing well. The trick to seeing results is staying focused when we are struggling. Heron matches you with thoughtful accountability partners that keep you taking steps forward, every week.
Movement needs action. Every Monday we identify specific steps to move forward. And with this clarity, Heron helps you navigate the week without dropping the things that really matter.
In 10 minutes, you will gain clarity for the entire week.
Every Monday know your progress on your objective and key wellness status.
When you choose Flock Mode you will have two partners: one of them will read your check-in every week and comment accordingly. You will do the same for your other partner.
Most people prefer to work with someone that they don’t know. If you are coming with a partner and you’d like to work together, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise we will match you.
When matching partners we consider the similarity of their objectives and interests and their level of expertise with OKRs. We prefer to be held accountable by folks with more experience.
The first step is reaching out to your partner. If you are not hearing back from them, send us an email to email@example.com.
This is at most 10 minutes. We ask herons to spend 5 minutes looking at their partners submission and reflecting on where they are against their objectives. Then, every so often, you will also send your partner an email or reminder if their submission is missing. See our best practices for more information on expectations.
