LOVE! Great Podcast show for businesses!

I really enjoyed listening to this podcast. The episode on Trust and Alignment in the workplace was fantastic, and I wish all workplaces would integrate some of the ideals that were shared in this episode into their SOP. I won't spoil the episodes for those who haven't listened yet, but I will say that I am definitely a fan!

Promotional Podcast for Work Board?

The podcast seems to be directed at executives that have been trained by Work Board and use the Work Board app. Unfortunately the podcast is not billed as such.

I want to learn about OKR and how to apply the principles. The podcast doesn’t seem to to share very much information and hardly gives any examples until episode 3 (which seemed more like a promo for that company than an example of OKR), which was the most informative by far.

The production values were fine. I could hear the words but sometimes the audio seemed to speed up which made me check the speed control on the app. Also, it is an interview “shmoozing” podcast, which I personally don’t prefer. But you might like it. There is little other production, no music, etc. And I hear much more from the host then I would expect, episode 2 is nearly all host.

There is so much to cover in OKR and this podcast seems to miss the mark.
