Heron is an accountability platform that balances results and wellbeing through structure and human partnership.
Most productivity methods focus on maximizing how much we can do. We list our tasks and try to complete as many of them, as quickly as possible.
The grind dooms us to give up sooner or later, in exhaustion. Heron encourages focusing on defining specific changes we would like to see over a defined period of time. Clarity on our goals allow us to prioritize the activities that really matter. Then we can move forward without fretting. Have you ever seen a Heron in a hurry?
People choose Heron not only because it works, but also because it places equal importance on self-care, business results and connection to others.
Our secret is mixing OKRs and humans.
Magdalena brings years of experience managing global teams at Google. After leaving corporate, she realized that the same tools that had helped her prioritize for a large global team can be used to prioritize her day-to-day. Much of her thinking around OKRs has been influenced by Christina Wodtke and Hannes Albrecht. Today Magdalena works as a consultant for companies implementing OKRs, is an executive coach, and actively contributes to the non-profit space.
Magdalena uses friends' visits to Miami as an excuse to do an excursion into the Everglades and spot Blue Herons (her friends really go for the alligators).
