About us

A team of experts on hand to help you reach your goals.

We believe in the power of true partnership. Our consultants offer a breadth of experience gained across many years and a wide range of sectors. We are here to help you explore your world and devise and develop an OKR strategy that considers and meets your particular challenges. We’ll also make this a powerful learning experience. Transferring our knowledge and empowering your people to take it on and run with it – so OKRs becomes second nature and part of what you do.

Our Mission

We want to create a world where your team is driven by a desire to be better. Where energy and enthusiasm levels are off the chart because everyone is aligned behind shared objectives that are delivering sensational outcomes. Your people are excited, inspired, motivated and enjoy working together to achieve outstanding results. They feel involved. They feel ownership. They feel empowered. They believe in the business and where it is headed. Responsible for success, they drive it.

Our Purpose

AuxinOKR is here to help you realise your true potential. You know your business requires transformation if it is going to stay relevant – you know you need a clear direction forward. AuxinOKR is here to help you see things more clearly, think differently and identify what’s really important so you can set goals that will deliver the results that matter. We’re not going to take existing strategies and force them into our framework – we’re going to create new objectives together that will really make a difference to your business.
