Accountability and coaching
What can I expect from my coach?
Expect follow ups. On the Flock Mode the coach will be notified when you submit your weekly OKR update, wellbeing indicators and goals for the week. The coach will email you sometimes with questions, suggestions, sometimes just acknowledging where you are. And if your update is missing? Expect the coach to send you a nudging email.
What can I expect from the Rookery, the weekly accountability calls?
The coach will ask participants for an introduction. Then everyone will be invited to provide a 5 minute update of their week and pose a question, if any. Other participants and the coach will provide input. The coach moderates but the richest interactions happen between the members of the group.
I want to participate in the weekly accountability group but none of the slots fit my schedule.
Work life balance and KIWIs
It stands for Key Wellness Indicator. Learn more here.
Can I just use Heron to track my key wellness Indicators?
Yes. Heron is built as a solution for work life balance. If you just want to focus on the wellbeing part at the moment, that’s a good place to start. The Heron app will be ready in Jan 2022. Until then, you can have a simple personal tracker for free. Join our community to receive all the information you need. Join us.
Do key wellness indicators change over time?
You may have the same set of KIWIs for a year or more. In general, our key wellness indicators don’t change that much.
There are two scenarios for changing our KIWIs (1) The KIWI became obsolete. You’ve missed this KIWI for so long now that it is no longer part of your routine. You’ve fallen off the wagon, this behavior is no longer part of the status quo. KIWIs may also become obsolete when circumstances disrupt our regular behaviors (e.g. global pandemic anyone?). (2) Desire to reinforce a new habit. Maybe you took up running a few months ago. If the behavior is stable and you are not trying to improve it (i.e. run faster or further) then it is a good candidate for a newly minted KIWI. You can try it for a few months and see if it correlates with stress.
I want to start running, can this be a KIWI?
No. If you want to develop a new habit, it is best to write a goal around it. You may even be able to include it as part of your OKR. KIWIs shouldn't require us to do anything new. They just represent a state of work life balance and they allow us to see when the balance is off. If the new habit becomes an established habit - e.g. you’ve been running for + 3 months - then you could consider running as part of your work life balance and create a KIWI for it.
How do I identify my KIWI if I’m not in balance?
