The HAPPY Way to Build Great Teams

Yesterday my blog about how to solve problems the SAD Way (See-Address-Do) Way has made some people sad.

Today I'm going to make you HAPPY: the proven way to Build Great Teams:
H - Harmonize the team, conflicts should be put aside first
A - Align the different goals of the team to that of the organization.
P - Purpose: find a common purpose for all
P - Path: create the path to achieve the common purpose
Y - Get people to say 'Yes' to commit and do the path created above

A typical team-building session using HAPPY would run like this:
  1. Harmonize: Get everyone to write down their differences and agree to harmonize, i.e. work through the differences;
  2. Goal Alignment Session to align the different goals to the organization's goals.  Eg Sales Department goal of 20% growth must be aligned to company's profit goals
  3. Purpose: Find a common purpose that will get people charging. Like to beat the competitor;
  4. Path: here will be the detailed Road Maps and Plans for each department harmonized to the company's Road Maps and Plans
  5. Yes:  now is action time, and we set the rewards and penalties so that everyone will play their part to work towards the set paths.
