Create high five situations


Blake Thomas

Director of Engineering at NoRedInk

Episode Notes

Do you go to work as your whole self? What motivates you to go to work each day? People are mostly motivated by money but you also don’t want a painful working environment, right? An organization’s goals and objectives should be set in a way that favors team members so they continue liking their work and hence be more productive.

Blake Thomas is the director of engineering at NoRedInk and has over two decades of experience in working with engineers. He talks about OKRs in detail and the importance of making them meaningful in an organization- quality over quantity.

Listen in to learn why OKRs fail when they do not focus on team engagement and fail to generate motivation. You will also learn how you can measure the viability of OKRs by observing people’s reactions towards the results.

“Whatever process we have to arrive to an objective, we need to ensure that people see objective as the meaningful.” – Blake Thomas
