How To Use Happiness Door

  • Would you like more joy in your meetings?

  • Do you need faster feedback in your workshops?

  • Are you looking for a way to engage an audience?

  • How do you know if your team is happy?

These 4 questions can lead to only one answer- The Happiness Door, exclusively brought to you by Agilibo (a product of Archibo).

As a Scrum Master, manager, or entrepreneur, you want to maintain a happy workforce. Employee engagement and happiness can be directly correlated to a team’s productivity and efficiency. There are lots of methods that can measure the happiness of their employees, and with Happiness Door this can be closely monitored and improved upon. 

Other traditional methods, such as surveys, indexes and regular feedback sessions, are commonly used to evaluate a team’s “happiness index”, but sometimes these can also have an opposite effect. Such approaches can even destroy motivation, as they can give the impression that the desired feedback is regarding the greatness of the company, not the happiness of the employee. Honest feedback is rare but crucial if you want to generate and maintain a happier work environment.

The Happiness Door in our Agilibo is a mix of an agile practice called the Feedback Wall and the Happiness Index. Using Agilibo, ask your workforce, team or audience, to consider how satisfied they were during one particular session or meeting, or what their thoughts are on a particular topic or project. Ask them to note down their feedback on a post-it note and to stick it on the Happiness Door.

 

The Happiness Door is usually placed in an easily visible space where people are encouraged to give feedback in several parameters such as things that make them motivated, encouraged, but also how they feel when an aspect demotivated them, too. 

Agillibo has taken up the Happiness Door, and have used other types of feedback to measure happiness and engagement, such as client emails, photos, and they have even drawn some cartoons!

The Happiness Door combines team collaboration, employee engagement and open and honest feedback. Like the Feedback Wall, the Happiness Door is often comprised of Post-It notes with feedback written on them like the Happiness Index. It assumes that people can act as the best gauge of their own happiness levels.
