Catherine is an OKRs coach. Many of her clients had the busy-but-not-productive problem. People worked hard on work output but did not focus on work outcomes; they were not able to connect their work to the bigger picture of the organization. With this in mind, she explored how to enhance the alignment and execution within companies, and discovered OKRs in 2017.
Her experience includes leading the Talent Development & Management program for a Fortune Global 500 company. Her achievement in Talent Development was rewarded by the Excellence of Education Awards of Life Office Management Association.
Catherine is fluent in both English and Mandarin. She graduated from the University of Sheffield with a Master’s degree in Multilingual Information Management.

Learn how to reduce the gap between company strategies with employees' daily execution.
❓What is the NO1 CHALLENGE that companies cannot turn their strategies into results?
There is no alignment between top management’s strategies and employee’s daily execution.
Many organizations are highly concerned about this problem because no matter how great your company strategy is, without execution, all you’ve got is a plan. If you are not able to overcome this challenge, and ensure your employees to achieve your company goals faster and more effectively, your competitor will.
So how to turn your company strategy into reality? Let's chat.
We are a team of 8 people and we wonder whether OKR is suitable for a small organization like us. Catherine is very helpful in providing us advice about OKRs practice in a small company like us. Thanks again,Catherine.
We took Catherine's advice to kick start OKRs in our company. So far so good. We just worked out company-level OKRs and we got some feedback from Catherine about the OKRs alignment checking. With that, we will move forward with more confidence and alignment . Thanks, Catherine.
Thanks Catherine for providing the valuable insights about difference between OKRs and KPIs.
It’s nice to talk to Catherine.She shared with me few OKR examples.I got some new ideas about my next year goals ,especially the supporting department goals in the next quarter. I would recommend her to my other friends.
Good advice from Catherine. I got much more clarity on what are the steps to excite OKR in my company. Thanks.
We tried OKRs by our own ways but it did not work very well. After talking to Catherine Chen, we got practical tips on how to implement OKRs in our company. We have much more clear understanding about OKRs and how to avoid the failure. Highly recommend Catherine to others who want to implement OKRs.
