Exxact Corporations on How They Grow with OKRs
We did an interview with one of Weekdone`s long-time users, the Marketing Manager of Exxact Corporation, Michael Hwang. He said that, "Weekdone has done a lot for us. When we started, we had about 30 people and not much reporting going on. Because, when you're a small company, and you need to wear a lot of different hats, reporting is the last thing you want to do. Weekdone has made it into a seamless process."
Executives & Implicit Bias: It Affects You Too!
Leadership expert and retired FBI agent Michael Bret Hood writes that " because of the way your brain works, there is no way to ever completely get rid of your biases, and in some cases, these biases, despite their negative connotation, save your life. Training, however, can sometimes help you recognize what some of your hidden biases are as well as teach you how to mitigate the potential effects of these biases."
