QUOTE OF THE WEEK

Musical transcendence is the final principle of an awesome dance party.

Phil Santos, Soon-to-be-author of The Art of the Dance Party


DEVELOP YOUR SELF

FACILITATION HACK

Prime your participants.

Before your participants arrive in the space, make sure they know what to expect. Help them prepare to have a transcendent experience. Before my corporate events, I go through a slide deck to get them into it.

WELL-BEING HACK

Do HIIT: High Intensity Interval Training.

When I wake up in the morning, I go for a sprint through the alleyways in my neighbourhood. It spikes my heart rate, but also Growth Hormone and Testosterone—which are essential for long-term bone health.

COMMUNITY HACK

Give your community members a break.

Currently, VYVE is on hiatus. I decided to do this because I found that I was inundating my community with information. When the break is over, they will be even more excited to participate.


LEARN FROM MY LIFE & VYVE

FROM THE LIFE OF JACQUES

I got an electric scooter to dance on.

My electric scooter arrived. Possibly, the best toy I have ever purchased in my life. The device will enable me to spread more smiles than ever. There’s something just so inherently goofy about dancing on an electric scooter.

My father, Gary, also got a scooter. We’re starting an electric scooter gang. Here’s why this embodies an awesome shared experience.

  1. It involves novelty. Being on an electric scooter is new.

  2. Mobility. Freedom of movement brings a sense of liberation.

  3. Physical exhilaration. The scooters are slightly dangerous.

  4. Camaraderie. There’s a sense of similarity with your fellow scooter riders.

So stay tuned for new dance moves on electric scooters.

FROM THE VYVE ALLIANCE

I realized the power of live feedback.

This week, I met with some epic humans. They gave me live feedback on the new session design for VYVE’s empowerment meetings. And in effect, the session was pretty much transformed.

Any opportunity to get out of my head and into reality I embrace. Live feedback provides these opportunities. Communication is more effective. Clarification can happen immediately.

I am going to start soliciting more live feedback from my community members.
