To achieve great things as a legal team, you need to align your actions with the wider business objectives. So how should you set goals within the legal function? How do you identify your priorities, and define the steps needed to achieve your legal ambitions? One goal-setting technique that’s proven effective is called OKRs. And this is exactly what we’ll be talking about in this episode with legal consultant and former Legal Director at Monzo Bank, Frances Coyle. Frances has much experience in benefiting from OKRs in a legal context and, in this episode, she shares an introduction to the goal-setting technique as well as some common examples that can be applied to in-house legal teams.
Frances is a fintech lawyer with a decade of experience working for merchant acquirers, lenders and banks like Adyen, Klarna and Monzo. Having recently set up her own consultancy, Turtle Law, Frances now works with a mixture of early-stage startups, scaleups and banks.
