WHAT CLIENTS SAY
Chief Product Officer and Co-Founder at GoNoodle
Ben is the epitome of an all-star coach. He’s incredibly perceptive, a great listener, very socratic in his approach, and laser focused on improving performance. Given how powerful OKRs are to the focus and productivity of an entire organization, I’d say Ben is the most valuable consultant I’ve ever hired.

VP Marketing at Thras.IO
Dikran facilitated an effective and extremely informational OKRs workshop with our leadership team. He was able to quickly educate us on OKRs and was flexible as we applied OKRs questioning throughout the day. Dikran gave us what we needed to take a shot at running through the three steps of an OKRs cycle on our own.
Vice President, Operations
Dikran helped us get OKRs implemented and on track. He was very engaging and quickly responded to questions. In a short period of time, it felt like he was part of our team, not an outside consultant.
Philip G. Clark, Ph.D.
Technical Director at 3M
Ben led us through our first OKRs implementation including setting up deploy parameters, training our teams, and implementing an easy to use review process that has become part of our operating rhythm. Ben brings his considerable experience working with a variety of clients to helping 3M identify how OKRs can be used within different teams and different situations. We particularly appreciated him helping us identify the “Why?” behind our objectives which in turn made us have stronger and more meaningful OKRs. His sense of humor and real time documentation enabled the teams to participate in the process yielding a more robust solution.
