Some of us might be used to working with OKRs (Objectives and Key Results) and KPIs (Key Performance Indicators), but it's often a struggle to connect the achievements of reaching the OKRs and hitting the KPIs with our own personal growth - be that growth within our career progression aspirations, or in achieving that deeper sense of intrinsic motivation in terms of understanding our value at a personal level.

"Impact" really is the essential addition to make that connection.

In this talk, Dan will present a "Career Impact Framework" that has been developed over the past 6 years. He will share stories and examples of various situations of this framework in use and how it's helped overcome morale challenges, supported people get extrinsic rewards such as promotions, assisted with overcoming behavioral "gamed-growth" situations, and ultimately helped people "grow" in their careers.
