In this week’s blog (18th of June till 24th of June) we will share with you, what drives the initiator and driver of Hóben Òn! Bianca Neman (Be Advancement) after we have been to the 2nd edition of the seminar musical Hóben Òn!; we will share with you what drives Pharon Pilgrim, the motivational speaker (also singer, composer, rapper, college baseball player on a scholarship in the USA and designer) that opened the 2nd edition of the Hóben Òn! Musical, sharing his personal challenges and successes; we will invite you to our next Master Your Mind-platform on the 21st of June at Biblioteka Nashonal; we will invite you to our next workshop at Chit Chat Mensing’s Caminada tiltled: “How to overcome Obstacles that are holding you back” and we will share with you some motivational video links. We will upload a link every day via Facebook.com/share2uplift.



Hóben Òn! Musical 2nd edition on the 16th of June

On the 16th of June there was the 2nd edition of the musical Hóben Òn! We want to share HOW we experienced this event:

“It was really beyond our expectations in terms of organization, flow of the whole event, workshops, energy, talent shown and last but not least uplifting and inspiring content by all the participants”. 
The collaboration between Bianca Neman (be.advancement) and Excel Arts Academy enabling this event has grown deeper and deeper after their first collaboration in 2016.



The afternoon started with artist FireOn Pharon Pilgrim and as a surprise he was followed by the well known singer Aemy Feliz before Excel Arts Academy started with their part offering a varied show of dancing, singing, brass band and some sketches presented by actors of Excel and some of the first 14 youth, participating in the Hóben Òn! scholarship program at Excel. The central theme was that everybody deserves a Second Change.








We asked Bianca Neman what drives her to start and continue to offer the 2nd edition of the different phases of the Hóben Òn! program. Bianca shared with us, that she was inspired and focused enough during her youth to study and improve herself, by going to school in the evening hours and also she went to Holland to further improve herself knowledge and skills level. This, although her family circumstances were far from being ideal.

This helps her when she gives her workshop Life and Soft skills to the youth from schools and from different “Barrios”, that instead of being a victim she has surpassed those challenges and she has grown to be whom she is right now.

Bianca: “it is not unusual to noticed three things among some of our youth. They find it hard to:
1. mention one positive trait of themselves;
2. compliment one and another in the peer group and
3. accept 100 % responsibility of their choices”.


“Our approach is to trigger youth based on their interest in arts and culture, edutainment, to discover and to develop their passion and realize their dreams. This irrespective of the environment where they come from, just by accepting their own responsibility, they can gain greater mastery of the choices they make in their life”.

One example on how Hóben Òn! can enable youth is, Pharon Pilgrim the motivational speaker, composer and singer that opened the musical this year. (Pharon is also baseball player on a scholarship in the USA and fashion designer) was asked what drives him? Having a clear purpose at the age of 20 year is remarkable, but it didn’t come easy for him. Having struggled at finding his purpose he went to some great disappointments, like choosing to leave VWO 6th grade to go to HAVO 5th grade only to fail that exam. Deciding to do a gap (sabbatical) year after finishing his HAVO exams after all, as a promise to his parents and he gained some work experience and discovered that he was not meant to sit behind a desk most of the day; becoming the first finalist in the RYLA, the youth leadership program of Rotary in 2016 that transformed him, participating in Hóben Òn! in 2016 and finally ending up on scholarship on baseball at the North Central Missouri College in the USA. He sang the national anthem twice at his school in the meantime, becoming the NCMC outstanding student of the month May 2018, after developing his speaking and singing abilities while at times, in the past even speaking could be painful for him due to a physical ailment.

“Struggles to succeed are necessary to become successful”, Pharon told the attendees in his address to the attendees.

Both Bianca and Pharon are focused on “changing mindsets of our youth” by doing just that, they are 100 % aligned with the goals of Share2Uplift.


Bianca is passionate about enabling the development of our youth via Hóben Òn! and in the near future she wants to start another big initiative and that is to connect and align educational organizations in their efforts, to improve the holistic education of our children, our youth including their parents on Curaçao.

Pharon wants to use his ever growing fame to inspire our youth and changed their mindsets and therefore the culture on Curacao, but he also wants to become a world renowned fashion designer based from Curacao.

Coverage of the event via Facebook.com/Turkutin of the live stream from Pure Quality Production (Presentation of initiator Bianca Neman and FireOn) and Æmy and Excel Arts Academy and more....
We will share the footage from Hóben Òn! itself with you, as soon as it is edited on the Facebook page of Hoben Òn!


As the core group of Share2Uplift we also enable mindset changes among are youth in Curaçao. We collaborate with social entrepreneurs like Bianca Neman to “Connect Dots Align efforts” aimed at changing our youth, their mindsets. Via the foundation - go to www.YouthVision5000.org and see with whom else we collaborate - we collaborate closely with other social entrepreneurs and organizations.


As Share2Uplift we are fully trying to align with this thinking of Center for Curriculum Redesign to promote this agenda in our educational systems and workplace. So in that sense we fully support any initiative to make our educational system 21st century proof.
Share2Uplift aligners are those that
– Create an inspiring vision of the future;
– Motivate and inspire people to engage with that vision;
– Manage delivery of the vision;
– Coach and built a team, so that it is more effective at achieving the vision.
These criteria are now being polished.

We also consider these 5 values of the most important ones for Share2Uplift aligners. They are:
• Peace from within;
• Compassion;
• Respectfulness;
• Integrity;
• Responsibility.
As we will progress towards this goal we will update you on the progress.

In phase 1, different groups of youth from schools, orphanages, Justitiele Jeugd Inrichting Curaçao, Youth that are on probation (Reclassering), youth from different “Barrios”, go through workshops Soft & Life skills and this started in 2017 for the 2nd edition of Hóben Òn!

Inner path of Leadership, Hˇben On! Musical Seminar, this week coaching tips

Posted on June 4, 2018 at 2:15 AM Comments comments (0)

In this week’s blog (4th – 10th of June) we will expand on the concept of the “Inner path of Leadership and the way to collectively shape our future”; we will invite our youth to attend the upcoming Hóben Òn! Musical on the 16th of June; we will invite you to our next Master Your Mind-platform session and we will end the blog with some video links as personal tips centered on RESILIENCE, every day we will upload one on our Facebook.com/share2uplift.


Synchronicity, the Inner Path of Leadership
In the beginning of this millennium we were introduced by a friend Dr. Miguel Goede, to the book “Synchronicity the Inner Path of leadership”, 1996 by Joseph Jaworsky. We presented and discussed this book in the so called Curaçao Leadership Forum (CLF), that started in 2004 after picking up the slack when Vision Korsou its Leadership Chapter stopped its activities and on their turn the CLF’s activities ended in 2012.

In 2015 we re-started our efforts to enable the development of leadership with the Share2Uplift movement, because we are still facing the same issues that were the reason we wanted to develop leadership capacities in all walks of life in Curaçao in the Vishon Korsou era. We belief that: you only fail when you stop trying.

Jaworsky whom was a very successful lawyer got stuck in his life and decided to start a process of inner transformation following his dream. The moment he decided to follow his dream, things started to fall into place almost effortless and he began to discover remarkable people who were to provide crucial assistance to him on his journey, that is “to participate in an unfolding creative order”/www.youtube.com/watch?v=TO9bXnMH7Oo .
This book is an inspirational guide to developing the most essential leadership capacity for our time: the ability to collectively shape our future, considering the combinatorial changes that are underway. His personal story encourages and enlightens all of us, as we wrestle with the profound changes required in public and institutional leadership and in our individual lives for the 21st century. Jaworsky explains in this book www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zl5759h1Jxg also the fundamental shifts of mind that will enable leaders to “listen” to realities that want to emerge in this world and acquire the courage to manifest them.

Leadership is about release of human possibilities, about enabling others to break free of their limits, created organizationally or self-imposed. The book illustrates by discussing the author’s life, that the immense cultural and institutional change which a livable future demands in the world and in Curaçao, can begin anytime, anywhere, in anyone.

In 1980 Joseph Jaworsky started the American Leadership Forum www.alfnational.org/ and this forum has grown over the years and this has inspired us greatly. We will present his book “Synchronicity the Inner Path of leadership” 2011 second edition in the Master Your Mind-platform session in July on the 19th of July. This new edition will include four principles - which includes doing the personal work (check this linkwww.youtube.com/watch?v=l46RerlI5V0). When we embrace these principles, allow us to access the ultimate source of wisdom and creativity. We firmly belief that we will ultimately be able to connect dots and align efforts of 250 ethical leaders from all walks of life to create value and guide our beautiful island towards an exciting 21st century. Because we will either succeed or learn lessons. So stay tuned, we will update you as we continue are journey to connect and align these leaders.


The goal of the core group of Share2Uplift for 2018

As the Share2Uplift movement our goal for 2018 is to identify 250 ethical leaders to be empowered by 21st century mindsets and are connected and collaborate with one another to create value for the whole of the society.

Self-care, join our The Tools workshop and this week tips

Posted on May 28, 2018 at 4:05 AM Comments comments (0)

In this week’s blog (28th of May - 3rd of June) we will expand on the importance of Self-care versus “Caretakeritis”; we will invite you to our upcoming workshop/mastermind/ bookclub on the book “The TOOLS” starting on the 29th of May till the 3rd of July; we will invite you to our next Master Your Mind Platform session on the 21th of June and we will end with some video-links as personal tips on self care. Every day we will upload a video on our Facebook.com/share2uplift page.


Self-care, the way to be become your own best
Of late we have noticed an increasing need to emphasize self care among clients and people interested in self development. In the book “No Sweat”, by Michelle Segar, the author presents a strong case for WHY we should exercise regularly to become our own best version. Segar was the first researcher to recommend that exercise should be rebranded (away from medicine and health) as a vehicle to foster daily energy, well-being, and success.



Her work indicates that when motivation is linked to future and/or abstract goals related to clinical health outcomes, self-care behaviors (exercise, dietary change, sleep) are not compelling enough to trump the other daily goals and priorities with which they constantly compete.


Segar's research suggests that marketing and branding health behaviors for their instantaneous payoffs and their role in fueling what matters most, will better result in sustained motivation and behavior.


Self-care versus “Caretakeritis”
Segar says that having strong negotiating powers is also important to prioritize self care and give yourself permission to prioritize your self-care versus family obligations, work responsibilities, and other demands on our time. It is easy to push fitness and exercise down the list of life’s “essentials.” Falling pray to what she calls “Caretakeritis.”

Assessment
Answer these questions as a personal assessment:
• Do you have difficulty saying “no” to others?
• Do you respond to requests on auto pilot without reflecting on your own time, energy, and goals?
• Do you feel deep down that your worth is tied to how well you take care of others and get things done?
• Do you consistently prioritize your “to do” list and your loved one’s needs over your needs, sense of well-being, and self-care?
• Do you have problems delegating things to others because no one does it as perfectly as you?
• Do you have feelings of constantly being exhausted as you try to keep up, and feeling like you can’t stop?
• Do you have feelings like you have no control to change these things?

If most of the above mentioned answers are answered “yes”, then you might experience these harsh side effects of “Caretakeritis”:

• Stressful Lives
• Depression and Anxiety
• Chronic Illness
• Insomnia
• Lack of Happiness or Vitality
• Irritability with Loved Ones

Segal recommends to choose for self care and say “NO” more often. By staying stronger and more energetic, you are in a better position to be at your best in dealing with your different roles in life.

In this link “What's your #1 nonnegotiable self-care habit? - YouTube Brian Johnson on the book No Sweat we share a Segar’s exercise to determine your number One Non-negotiable self-care priority, be it: sleep, exercise, meditation, quality time for Loved Ones, healthy eating to mention a few as examples.

So choose and stick to your number One Self care priority and change your life to prevent you from falling into the “Caretakeritis” trap.

Self care in health care

In health care, self-care is any necessary human regulatory function which is under individual control, deliberate and self-initiated. Some place self-care on a continuum with health care provider at the opposite end to self-care. In modern medicine, preventive medicine aligns most closely with self-care. Self-care is seen as a partial solution to the global rise in health care costs placed on governments. The notion that self-care is a fundamental pillar of health and social care means it is an essential component of a modern health care system governed by regulations and statues.

Self-care is considered a primary form of care for patients with chronic conditions who make many day-to-day decisions, or self-manage, their illness. Self-management is critical and self-management education complements traditional patient education in primary care to support patients to live the best possible quality of life with their chronic condition. Self-care is learned, purposeful and continuous.

In philosophy, self-care refers to the care and cultivation of self in a comprehensive sense, focusing in particular on the soul and and the knowledge of self. (Source Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Self-care)

As the core group of Share2Uplift we fully underwrite the importance of self-care and high recommend this to all interested in self-development on their way to become the best version of themselves.

The goal of the core group of Share2Uplift for 2018

As the Share2Uplift movement our goal for 2018 is to identify 250 ethical leaders to be empowered by 21st century mindsets and are connected and collaborate with one another to create value for the whole of the society.

• Respectfulness;
• Integrity;
• Responsibility.

Importance of Ethics, upcoming events and this week tips

Posted on May 21, 2018 at 1:50 AM Comments comments (0)

In this week’s blog (21st – 27th of May) we will expand on the importance of ethics in the 21st century education based on the Character Framework the Center of Curriculum Resign uses; we will invite you to our upcoming events a workshop at Chit Chat on the 24th of May and a book-discussion that starts on the 29th of May till the 3rd of July; we will end with some personal motivational tips centered on Ethics and Integrity. Every day we will upload a video link on our Fabeook.com/share2uplift page.

Importance of ethics and the challenges in the 21st century
Go to this link Character Education for the 21st Century: What Should Students Learn? The complete framework

According to the Center of Curriculum Redesign in the 21st century, humanity is facing severe difficulties at the societal, economic, and personal levels. Societally, we are struggling with greed manifested in Financial instability, climate change, and personal privacy invasions, and with intolerance manifested in religious fundamentalism, racial crises, and political absolutism. Economically, globalization and innovation are rapidly changing our paradigms of business. On a personal level we are struggling with finding fulfilling employment opportunities and achieving happiness. Technology’s exponential combinatorial growth is rapidly compounding the problems via automation, which are producing social disruptions. Educational progress is falling behind the curve of technological progress, as it did during the Industrial Revolution, resulting in social pain.

The Center for Curriculum Redesign (curriculumredesign.org/our-work/papers/) addresses the fundamental question of "WHAT should students learn for the 21st century?" and openly propagates its recommendations and frameworks on a worldwide basis. CCR seeks a holistic approach to deeply redesigning the curriculum, by offering a complete framework across the four dimensions of an education:
• knowledge,
• skills,
• character, and
• metacognition.

In this blog we will expand of the CCR’s framework on Ethics as part of character qualities describes how one engages with, and behaves in, the world. There are six essential qualities that emerged from the Center’s research. We focus in this blog on Ethics.

The main idea is that children naturally progress through stages of moral reasoning, from pre-conventional (obedience and punishment, self-interest orientations) through conventional (interpersonal accord and conformity, authority and social-order maintaining orientation) to post-conventional (social contract orientation, universal ethical principles).

Once a moral reasoning level has been achieved it is never lost, however, moral behavior is highly context specific. A study linking moral reasoning stages and “strength of will” with prevalence of cheating behavior found that 15% of students who were at a post-conventional stage cheated (compared to 55% of conventional subjects and 70% of pre-conventional subjects). Notably, within the conventional stage only 26% of what the study called “strong-willed” participants cheated, compared to 74% of those determined by the study to be “weak- willed.” For this reason, it is useful to think of ethics as a character quality rather than a pool of knowledge.

b. How it can be taught

In School

Ethics is often taught through a particular lens of one’s specialization in post-secondary education such as business, medicine, law, or public administration.

But there are also ways to teach and practice ethics across the curriculum, and adolescence in particular has been identified as an important time of transformation in this regard. Research shows that methods engaging students’ autonomy are much more deeply effective.

One way to grant students autonomy with ethical decisions is through democratic schools, in which students are responsible for collectively making decisions that affect the entire community. This responsibility engages them in an age-appropriate yet important roles requiring ethical conduct. In his theory of the just community high school, Kohlberg claims that in order for the democracy to be successful, it must

1) be embraced as a “central commitment of a school rather than a humanitarian frill,”
2) that the content of discussions should be framed in terms of morality and fairness, and
3) that small group discussions preceding the large democratic community meetings would help facilitate and preserve students’ higher-stage thinking in the face of mob mentality.



Philosophy for Children programs use children’s stories to teach children to think through ethical questions. For discussions to be effective, the necessary conditions are

1) exposure to the next level of reasoning and|
2) confrontation with challenges to the learner’s current moral structure.

Classroom studies have shown successful moral development when the teacher carefully supported and clarified students’ arguments, and continuously pushed the students to think one step beyond their current understanding.


Ethics can also be taught as a separate subject for older students.

Outside of School

The moral atmosphere of the home, the school, and the larger environment are extremely important contributors to moral development. In particular, two dimensions are crucial: the role- taking and empathy opportunities that the environment provides for the learner, and the level of justice in the institution. As an example, a study comparing various prisons; those in the pre-conventional stage of development rely on obedience to arbitrary command by power and punishment for disobedience, while those in the conventional stage implement a system of points are reward for conformity. This further speaks to the importance of autonomy in education, not just in the curriculum but in every aspect of the educational experience.


The CCR’s Geneva Declaration has stated:


“We call for Character Education of the entire population as a critical right and necessity, requiring:

A new vision of Character Education that identifies and anticipates needs, and reinforces the role of both performance and moral qualities, at both the intrapersonal and interpersonal levels, in society, economies, and individuals;


Improvement in teachers professional development through rethinking what and how to teach Character in order to support development of the students, inside and outside the classroom and school;


More inclusive assessments, at the global, academic entrance, local (jurisdiction-specific) and classroom (formative and summative) levels, and providing data and information that can be used to help improve character education at all levels;


Mobilization of public awareness through the media, and involvement of private and public sectors, governmental bodies, students, international organizations, foundations and others in strengthening partnerships and networks for character education, and in improving character education globally.


Humanity has a very large stake in making these goals happen, and very soon.

We as the core-group of share2uplift will continuously work on enabling education of ethics at schools and outside schools. Of late we have met too many people expressing to us their concerns on integrity and ethics in all walks of life.

The goal of the core group of Share2Uplift for 2018

As the share2uplift movement our goal for 2018 is to identify 250 ethical leaders to be empowered by 21st century mindsets and are connected and collaborate with one another to create value for the whole of the society.

As Share2Uplift we are fully trying to align with this thinking of Center for Curriculum Redesign to promote this agenda in our educational systems and workplace. So in that sense we fully support any initiative to make our educational system 21st century proof.

Share2Uplift aligners are those that:
– Create an inspiring vision of the future;
– Motivate and inspire people to engage with that vision;
– Manage delivery of the vision;
– Coach and built a team, so that it is more effective at achieving the vision.

These criteria are now being polished.

We also consider these 5 values of the most important ones for Share2Uplift aligners. They are:
• Peace from within;
• Compassion;
• Respectfulness;
• Integrity;|
• Responsibility.

As we will progress towards this goal we will update you on the progress.

Spotlight on Excel Arts Academy, upcoming events and this week tips

Posted on May 14, 2018 at 2:55 AM Comments comments (0)

In this week’s blog we will share with you an interview we had with the founder of Excel Arts Academy Mrs. Shelomi Doran-Bakhuis, another example of a Transformational Leader in Curaçao; we will invite you to the upcoming Master Your Mind-platform session on the 17th of May; we will invite you to our next Top Habit workshop at Chit Chat Mensing's Caminada on the 24th of May; we will invite you to attend a workshop Mastermind Book discussion on the book The TOOLS that will start on the 29th of May till the 3rd of July and we will end with some personal uplifting tips as video links. We will upload one every single day on our Facebook.com/share2uplift page.

Excel Arts Academy, an example of Transformational Leadership
The vision of Excel Arts Academy is to: “Offer to children, youth and young adults an education so that they can discover and develop their life goals, their talents, character and skills to become excellent and exemplary citizens, that are able to actively be involved in the development of their society, as role models”.

We asked the founder of the movement Shelomi Doran-Bakhuis how it all started
“The Excel Arts Academy movement was founded in Curaçao in 2000 and it became a foundation in 2006. Based on my own experiences as a child and student, as a young girl I was very shy and insecure and I didn’t excel in the more cognitive curriculum, but I did very well in arts, singing and dancing.

I was able to overcome my shyness and insecurities by expressing my creative talents, resulting in improved self confidence and as a result of that, improved school grades. I concluded that the traditional educational system basically doesn’t enable students with artistic talents to develop their potential. Based on my own experiences, I became more and more determined to start my own Academy for children and youth with a more artistic profile and intelligence. This became my passion. My own experiences have proven to me, that if you can develop students whom are more talented in arts and culture, this can help them develop and increase their self confidence, perform and achieve better grades at school and ultimately achieve more in life. They can then help others in their development”.

30 Graduates of the Excel Arts Academy, biggest milestone yet
After a long journey of learning while we were teaching as the Aacademy, on the 13th of April we had our graduation ceremony of the first cohort of graduates of Excel Arts Aacademy. Almost 30 Youth Leaders whom were relatively unknown to the general public graduated. Most of them work or they are students in the educational sector and/or social sector or as teachers or they are involved in social work or they are social pedagogic counselors etc...but quite a few of them are “young entrepreneurs”, having their own creative businesses. These graduates participated or have guided different artistic, cultural, social and educational events, aimed at planting deep seeds in the heart and souls of people. Some of these leaders up to this day are investing time in Excel Arts Academy and others excel in the society as responsible employees, business men, creative parents and as role models in the society. The academy has contributed to create champions of change, pioneers that can lead in a creative way and according to high standards, any kind of organisation, family, even a nation in the realisation of their vision or whatever BIG goal they might have”.
(Picture Extra.cw > Facebook Page of Excel Arts Academy. For more pictures of the ceremony: /binwak.com/gallery/#2018/April%202018/Gruaduation%20Excel%20Arts%20Academy)

We asked Shelomi about their new slogan: “Excel Arts Academy More than Arts, It’s a lifestyle”.
“Their abilities and skills levels that were honed over the years, going through an intensive proces of individual change, has made them bright shining torches, role models and examples for the whole of the society. This while Excel Academy as an organization itself was also learning along the way in this journey. We considered it appropiate and important, to give them a diploma after all these years and present them at the same time to the larger public of Curaçao. They not only finalized the curriculum successfully, but also showed their dedication and commitment to the larger vision of the Academy, to help a larger number of children, youth and young adults, by working consistently on their own continuous development, to make this possible”.

The next level of leadership development
“During the graduation ceremony of the abovementioned first cohort of leaders that graduated, we launched the next level of leadership development phase called: “The Change Champions Leadership Academy”. Its aim is:

“To bring their leadership skills to an even higher level”. CCLA just as “Excel Arts Academy” is a personal initiative and vision that I have. Its mision is: “To equip and transform leaders, youth and adults to enable them to live a life with high ethical standards and enable them to use their talents and skills to educate and equip others to become excellent and dignified citizens in our society”. Considering the high number of youth involved in crime, we would also like to focus on prevention towards socalled “At risk youth”.

We want to approach youth in certain neighborhoods and schools to be part of this new Academy. We will train more mentors and teachers/coaches so that we can address this matter in a more focused and professional way”.

“We recruit newbees from 3 – 5 years old; 6 – 12 years old and youth from 12 – 30 years old. We give presentations to the public in general, by spreading leaflets at schools and certain neighborhoods and via social media.

We also get the parents involved in the artistic development of the students, in some cases as mentors, and as they experience the positive changes in their children, they share these stories as ambassadors with their family, friends, colleagues and others, because of the strong positive messages and influence Excel emits”.


What is the strategy being used?

“Art is an integral part of the daily life of youth and it plays an important role in the development of their own identity as a individual. It is part of the life of a “Yiu di Korsou”. At the Academy, art as a curriculum is presented in a lively and experiential way. This triggers students as individuals to go and seek ways and means to experience arts and culture. Because the youth are very much into experimenting, arts and culture is an excellent way to help and support them in their own internal journey to develop their talents, to help to express their feelings and thoughts and to become aware of their emotions. The teachers and mentors of the Excel Arts Academy are very focused to enable students, based on a positive approach, to become aware of what they feel in themselves, how they interact with others social-emotionally; they are also focused on acquiring knowledge, skills and the right attitudes”.

“In this coming academic year we will focus again to close the gap in the development of the mental, social-emotional and physical development of those under priviledge children, youth and young adults, so that we increase their chances of becoming worthy citizens, able to participate fully in our society. We aim to reach at least 80 parents, foster parents, family members or people living in the neighborhoods attending our artistic shows and programs, that we will offer to certain neighborhoods. We will offer 3 times a year presentations to a group of at least 20 parents, foster parents or family members to inform them and stimulate them to uplift their educational skills levels. Involvement of these groups is important, because of the need for sustainable development and support needed to learn new attitudes, values and norms, that students agreed to adapt as part of being in the Excel Arts Academy-program’.

How important is it to create behavorial changes that stick?
“My goal is to reach as much people as possible to enable lifestyle changes so that they can gain better mastery over their lives and become better citizens. For these changes to be sustainable I coach some of them “One-on-One”.

“The curriculum of the Academy is based on core values that forms the foundation of their education and development. We teach the importance of having an exemplary life in all areas of their lifes. Positive peer pressure and a family feeling among the students and we entice them to be exemplary role models. On a continuous basis, coaches and mentors have group meetings where in and open and transparent way, they discuss with one another and support one another. This is happening for years now.

Our mentor program is based on peer mentoring & cross-age-mentoring. The program consists of 6 phases divided in 3 cycles. The student is being guided in different areas of their life and the mentor/guide walks one-on-one with the trainee/student. The Excel Arts Academy-program and method is based on experiential learning and “Art-therapy”. All the participants in the project via this method has the opportunity to learn from their own perspective, responsibility and authority aimed at realization of their personal development goals. At the end of each year, we have an event or play where all students of the Academy can participate. From April on, every class starts with their preparations for the event that this year will be on the 16th of June. This year it will be in collaboration with Hoben On. Regarding collaborations, we collaborate with different boarding schools and other orgnizations. We intend to, as of this year, expand our collaborations by working more focused and with an emphasis on prevention in some neighborhoods and schools in Curaçao.”

Appeltje van Oranje award
Shelomi, we would like to congratulate you because Excell Arts Academy has just won a so-called “Appeltje van Oranje”-award. This is a very prestigious award for organizations in the Kingdom of the Netherlands. We hope that you stay the course and keep leading Excel Arts Academy and the newly formed Change Champions Leadership Academy (CCLA) to new levels of depth and also expand your wings laterally, to transform growing numbers of leaders to influence our society in a positive way. As Share2uplift we totally support you efforts and are totally aligned with your goals.

Developing Emotional Intelligene, our upcoming events en this week coaching tips

Posted on May 7, 2018 at 3:05 AM Comments comments (0)

In this week’s blog (7th – 13th of May) we will expand on WHY it is becoming more and more important to pay attention to the need to develop Emotional Intelligence in a world where we are dealing with increasing waves of external changes on top of our already existing local challenges; we will invite you to our next Master Your Mind session on the 17th of May; we will invite you to a workshop mastermind session starting on the 29th of May till the 3rd of July discussing the book 'The Tools' and we will end with some personal tips as video-links to uplift you. Every day we will upload one of these links on our Facebook.com/share2uplift page.


The need to develop Emotional Intelligence, another of 3 vital behaviors (keystone habit)

What is Emotional Intelligence? According to Travis Bradberry and Jean Greaves it is: “…is the capacity to be aware of, control, and express one's emotions, and to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously (prudently) and empathetically…”. We firmly belief that we need to emphasize the need for focusing on the development of Emotional Intelligence. Our experiences up to now has been, that in our Educational System and in organizations in Curaçao, this focus on the development of Emotional Intelligence is almost non-existent. And if we want people to interact with one another better then they are doing now, we need to prioritize EQ-development as soon as possible.

Why?

The world is changing rapidly. "We don’t live in an era of changes, we are living in a changing era." – Professor Jan Rotmans. The Center of Curriculum Redesign refers to these changes as “combinatorial changes”, that is accelerating change. These changes are not only exponential changes, but they are also “combinatorial”, which means they are on top of each others.

Check this link to get a deeper understanding by futurist Keynote Speaker Gerd Leonhard – YouTube. There are 28 of these new developments like Artificial Intelligence, 3D printing, Renewable energy, Internet of things, Cognitive systems, Nanotechnology, Robotics, Digital Money, Blockchain, that are all happening at the same time. TESLA with Eon Musk as their CEO is an example of a company who knows how to work with all these combinatorial changes. They are not a car company, but a mobility company; they are an energy company and they are in the solar business; they want to redo our grit, they are in all of these businesses that are on the cutting edge of new developments.


In a presentation in February 2018 of Professor Michio Kaku described (Earth 2.0) what life will look like in twenty years for now. Check these links futurism.com/michio-kaku-life-20-years-future/ illustrated in this Infographic Click to View Full Infographic or go to this link futurism.com/images/things-to-come-a-timeline-of-future-technology-infographic/

Given this new era we are living in, we have searched for what others sources have to say on how education must prepare students for these upcoming changes.

“There is now a pressing need for education to reward human skills including expression, communication, collaboration and emotional awareness. The best person for the job in the technological age might not be the cleverest or the quickest thinker. It’ll be the person who can demonstrate emotional intelligence and work well with others.” “Currently education is testing things machines can do, such as memory recall and speed writing, but we don’t measure the things that machines can’t do. The assessment system measures what’s easy to measure and ignore what’s important,” said Brown-Martin. It is now more important than ever that education cultivates the one thing machines will never be able to do: be humanwww.studyinternational.com/news/education-prepare-students-work-alongside-ai/

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella attributes his success at Microsoft to this one trait www.cnbc.com/2018/02/26/microsoft-ceo-satya-nadella-attributes-his-success-to-this-one-trait.html

"Empathy is only developed through your life's experience. It's not something that's really endowed on you," Nadella said on a recent episode of WNYC "Freakonomics Radio" podcast. "[With] every passing mistake you make, you develop more of a sense of being able to see life through other people's eyes. "Empathy, he argued, can "make you a more effective parent, more effective colleague and a more effective partner." Empathy is crucial not only to personal success but also in business, says the Microsoft CEO.

“I overvalued intelligence”: Bill Gates | LinkedIn www.linkedin.com/pulse/i-overvalued-intelligence-bill-gates-sidharath-tuli/ In this article by Sidharath Tuli says: “Remember it requires enormous self-awareness, empathy and self-control to have high Emotional Quotient. Not surprisingly, the current CEO at Microsoft, Satya Nadella and a successor to Bill Gates has made empathy a foundational pillar of his leadership style. In his recent book – Hit Refresh, Satya Nadella talks about how humans and their unique qualities, like empathy, would become more important in a world constantly being disrupted by technology. For Nadella, empathy is the touchstone of leadership, a living experience that he has imbibed bringing up a child with special needs. In the interview with TOI, Bill Gates paid Satya Nadella, the ultimate compliment, by calling him a very thoughtful and a Zen like person. As the New Year dawns, may we see more leaders becoming a bit more like Nadella! Billionaire Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates knows that intelligence isn't one-size-fits-all. Gates built his career on strong logic and mathematical skills, establishing himself as a brilliant coder with a knack for solving technical problems. But he admits he lacked other strengths, such as strong interpersonal skills. In a series of posts on Twitter, Gates shares the things he wishes he knew when he was just starting out in his career. "Looking back on when I left college, there are some things I wish I had known," Gates. "Intelligence takes many different forms," Gates says. "It is not one-dimensional. And not as important as I used to think."

According to Gerd Leonard, the future of learning is that it is becoming more human and not smarter because we all will become smart because of technology. Check this link by SKILLS FOR TOMORROW www.youtube.com/watch?v=H6kitc85PPg.

So for all of these above reasons and based on what we shared in past blogs on what the Center of Curriculum Redesign is advocating, we now know that these changes sooner or later will also affect us in Curaçao. So that is why we firmly belief that we need to make Emotional Intelligence a priority in our Educational System and in our organizations. Some habits are more important than others — these habits have the power to transform your life. Vital behaviors are the smallest set of actions, the few high-leverage actions that if you keep doing, produce the outcomes you're after.

Or to put it in another way, keystone habits lead to the development of multiple good habits. They start a chain effect in your life that produces a number of positive outcomes. Like enough sleep is foundational for your fitness during the whole day.

We sincerely belief that Emotional Intelligence also is a keystone habit or vital behavior for Curacao that can have a major impact on how we deal with one another. This is why we focus on it in our approach towards clients either individual clients or groups. We belief that it is the best way for them to “prepare to adapt” to the inevitable “combinatorial changes” that are under way within short.

Accepting 100 % responsibility, Master Your Mind-platform session in May; Mastermind Book club and this week tips

Posted on May 1, 2018 at 12:00 AM Comments comments (0)

In this week’s blog (30th of April – 6th of May) we will expand on what it means to accept 100 % responsibility and ask you to an assessment; we will invite you to our next upcoming Master Your Mind-platform session on the 17th of May; we will invite you to our Mastermind – bookclub on the book 'The Tools' that will start on the 29th of May and we will end with some personal coaching tips regarding accepting responsibility over one’s life by choosing not to blame. Every day in the week we will upload one video on our Share2Uplift Facebook page.


Accepting 100 % responsibility
Do you accept 100 % responsibility of all the decisions you have taken in the past either consciously or unconsciously? If the answer is yes you do, you can use that to gain mastery over your future decisions and you would be able to pro actively take charge of your destiny. We consider this habit to be one of the vital behaviors (or Keystone habit), that we need to work on in Curaçao. Why? Most people when asked if they agree with this statement, whole heartedly say yes they do.

But then, from our own experiences we have found that people are sometimes unaware of how they think and behave. Ask yourself the following questions:
1. Do you don’t blame anyone or anything and just do whatever it takes to reach your goals? Or do you blame circumstances, conditions and your conditioning for not reaching your goals?
2. Does your behavior reflect your conscious choices based on your values (study; hard work, fit body, relationships)? Or does your behavior reflect your conditions based on feelings, where by not mastering these emotions you become your feelings slave?
3. Are you pro-actively managing your response based on your values even if it was influenced by external stimuli? Or do you build your live around other people’s emotions and are dependent of them?
4. Do you often think:
I can or do you often think I can’t;
I am able or I wish I were able to;
I will do it or I will try;
I will tell the truth or tell lies;
I focus on my successes instead or my failures;
Do your surround your self with people that are:
being non-Judge-mental and encouraging instead of people being judge-mental, dis-empowering and dis-encouraging?

As an assignment this week check how you answer these abovementioned questions. No blaming; taking conscious decisions based on your values; pro-actively managing your responses based on your values even if it was influenced by external stimuli; answering I can, I am, I will focus on successes and I surround myself with non-judge-mental people means, that you accept 100 % responsibility of your choices. Any other answer means that there is work to be done. Imagine what a different place we would live in Curaçao, if most of us accepted 100 % responsibility.

Some habits are more important than others — they have the power to transform your life. Vital behaviors are the smallest set of actions, the few high-leverage actions that if you keep doing, produce the outcomes you're after. We sincerely belief that accepting 100 % responsibility is a keystone habit or vital behavior for Curacao. This is what we focus on it, in our approach towards clients either individual clients or groups.



The goal of the core group of Share2Uplift for 2018
As the Share2Uplift movement our goal for 2018 is to identify 250 ethical leaders to be empowered by 21st century mindsets and are connected and collaborate with one another to create value for the whole of the society. As Share2Uplift we are fully trying to align with this thinking of Center for Curriculum Redesign to promote this agenda in our educational systems and workplace. So in that sense we fully support any initiative to make our educational system 21st century proof.
Share2Uplift aligners are those that:
– Create an inspiring vision of the future;
– Motivate and inspire people to engage with that vision;
– Manage delivery of the vision;
– Coach and built a team, so that it is more effective at achieving the vision.

These criteria are now being polished.
We also consider these 5 values of the most important ones for Share2Uplift aligners. They are:
• Peace from within;
• Compassion;
• Respectfulness;
• Integrity;
• Responsibility.

As we will progress towards this goal we will update you on the progress.

Trends unfolding on Curašao, attend this week workshop on on Habit creation and Willpower and this week tips

Posted on April 23, 2018 at 2:20 AM Comments comments (0)

In this week’s blog (23rd till 29th of April) we will discuss our experiences in the past year and the two trends we see unfolding on Curaçao and how this relates to the approach of the Center of Curriculum Redesign (CCR) is advocating. CCR answers the question what should students learn for the 21st century in the age of Artificial Intelligence, Robotics; we will invite you to our upcoming next Soulgarden, Uplifting and Mensing’s Caminada workshop on the 26th of April at Chit Chat on “Habit creation and Willpower” and we will end this blog with this week’s personal coaching tips as video links. Every day we will upload one on these video’s on our Facebook.com/share2uplift page.


Two trends we are seeing
As we “connect dots and align efforts” and as we gain more experiences in working with individual clients and/or groups and organizations in Curaçao, we are identifying their needs and enabling our clients how to best deal with their everyday challenges. We have noticed two trends:
First of all, our clients have issues with people not really accepting 100 % responsibility of their choices; people having challenges that could easily be solved if they were more skilled in applying Emotional Intelligence skills and more skilled in handling Crucial Conversations. (When there are high stakes, difference of opinions and emotions can run high). These vital behaviors are:

1. Accepting 100 % responsibility over one’s choices;
2. Higher Emotional Intelligence and
3. Greater mastery on handling Crucial Conversations in different walks of life, organizations, families and in our educational systems on Curaçao.

As mentioned before in this blog we firmly belief that if we would address these three vital behaviors and most of us would gain mastery over them on Curaçao, we would have a much improved society able to constructively solved our day-to-day challenges in life.



The second trend we are taking notice off is, new forms of fluid collaborations among networks creating value. By anticipating how disruptive changes will disrupt some of our existing structures, we can be better prepared to build new structures. Look at what Jan Rotmans has to say about this. “We are in a change of eras comparable to the Industrial Revolution in the 19th century”. Rotmans believes that: “We are moving towards a Society 3.0: decentralised, bottom-up, flexible and with small networks instead of a society dominated by bureaucracy and large companies”. Having said that, we are seeing new forms of network collaborations, creating value for the society increasing rapidly also on Curaçao. We ourselves are actively creating these forms of collaborations creating value. For more on Rotmans: go to our blog on the 9th of April 2018.


How does this relate to the approach of the Center of Curriculum Redesign? CCR answers the question what should students learn for the 21st century in the age of Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, etc.. They are advocates of 4 dimensional education, but where the first pillar Knowledge in a certain way needs to be slimmed and some new knowledge added in an educational system already overloaded with curriculum. They are at the same time big advocates of the other 3 pillars that need to added. Like the 4 C’s skills training (2nd pillar), Character training (3rd pillar) and Meta Cognition (4th pillar). This could be achieved by freeing up time by offering less Knowledge curriculum. For more go to curriculumredesign.org/.

Regarding Skills: “How to use what we know?” They mention these 4 C’s: Creativity, Critical Thinking, Communication and Collaboration. By deepening our knowledge in effective and crucial communication (one of the three vital behaviors) and by applying techniques to enable more creativity and the ability to express ourselves, 3 of the 4 these elements can be covered.

Regarding Character: “How we behave and engage in the world” They mention: Mindfulness, Resilience, Courage, Curiosity, Ethics and Leadership. By applying techniques this can strengthen resilience, courage and curiosity.

Meta learning: How we reflect and adapt. Meta cognition and Growth mindset.

We will closely increase our understanding of the needs of our clients and as core group Share2Uplift offer them localized, customized services that stick related to the Skills, Character and Meta-learning.

Programs of Bos di Hubentut, this week Master Your mind Book Session, upcoming workshop and this week tips

Posted on April 15, 2018 at 4:10 PM Comments comments (0)

In this week’s blog (16th – 22nd of April) we will expand a little more on 2 other programs of Bos di Hubentut that is celebrating their 25th anniversary this year; we will invite you to our next Master Your Mind-platform session this coming Thursday the 19th of April; we will invite you to our upcoming workshop Top Habits for Lasting change on the 26th of April, presented by Soulgarden, Uplifting in collaboration with Mensing’s Caminada, on Habits creation and Willpower, we will commend the talented young singers that participated at the E-concert on the 14th of April organized by E-Awards Foundation and we will end in with some new video links with personal coaching tips on accepting 100 % responsibility over one’s life by choosing not to blame, complain and having excuses. Every day we will upload one of these video links on our Share2Uplift Facebook-page.

Bos di Hubentut celebrating their 25th anniversary
Bos di Hubentut is celebrating their 25th anniversary under the dynamic leadership of Sheila Albertoe. In our blog on the 2nd of March we paid attention on the inauguration of 21 members of the youth parliament as part of the Hoben Goberna project under the Bos di Hubentut umbrella. This week we will expand on two other projects, namely Brigada di Seguridat i Formashon and Kibrando e Gritonan Silensioso.

Brigada di Seguridat i Formashon
According to Rachel Hawker spokes-person of Bos di Hubentut, Brigada di Seguridat started in October 2004. This after the tragic death of a youngster on the 12th of April of that year. The goal of Brigada di Seguridat is to improve the safety of children and youngsters during big activities like Carnaval, Sehu or any other celebrations. Over the last 14 years of their existence Brigada di Seguridat over 2800 youngsters between 12 till 25 years old has participated in the programs Brigada offers. These youngsters are recruited from all walks of life and they usually approach Brigada di Seguridat themselves. After they have been through a screening process they are usually allowed to participate. This year they are planning a triathlon, camps and there will be a special event soon where some participants will be celebrating a promotion to a higher rank, there will the formal acceptance of some new members and some leaders will get their certificate of the leadership course they followed.

According to Rachel the interest for participating in Brigada di Seguridat is growing
They attract youth from all walks of life, especially because they are interested in the non-conventional physical training methods that “Brigada” offers to the participants. Because of the type of physical and skills training they go through, their attitudes changes; their self confidence increases; they become more willing to accept responsibilities; they learn to serve without expecting anything back; basically they become better in their personal leadership skills and they are enabled to become responsible citizens in our society.

For more information on Brigada di Seguridat i Formashon go to:

Kribando e Gritonan di Silensioso
Another project of Bos di Hubentut is Kribando e Gritonan di Silensioso. This project focuses on addressing domestic and relational violence, especially among children and our youth, be it physical violence or sexual abuse. This week as part of another project of “Kribando e Gritonan di Silensioso” founder and director Debbie Stevens from Action Breaks Silence - Creating Safer Communities visited Curaçao. Having herself survived a rape at 11 years of age, and driven by her belief that all women and teenage girls should be empowered and know how to defend themselves, Debi Steven has built her twenty-five year career on empowering women and girls by teaching personal safety workshops to individuals, schools, universities and many blue chip companies and organizations. In July 2013, she founded Action Breaks Silence to offer her training FREE of charge to women and girls at risk of sexual or gender-based violence in South Asia and Africa. Action Breaks Silence is an educational charity established to create a world where women and girls can live their lives free from fear of gender-based violence. To try and break the cycle of violence, Action Breaks Silence offers two educational programs: the Empowerment through Self-Defence Program for women and girls; and the Hero Empathy Program for boys, which challenges gender stereotyping and builds feelings of empathy and respect towards women and girls. During her stay she trained girls about 2000 girls on self defense techniques as part of their belief that girls need to become more empowered. Look at what she has to say about the philosophy behind their approach.

Boys will not be excluded
According to Rachel they just contacted Action Breaks Silence via internet and they immediately reacted and were willing to offer this training for free on Curaçao. In November they will come back and offer the training meant for boys, the Hero Empathy Program for boys, which challenges gender stereotyping and builds feelings of empathy and respect towards women and girls by Action Breaks Silence.
We commend Bos di Hubentut on their relentless efforts during these 25 years to enable our youth through the different programs that they offer, that is un-doubtfully having an ever increasing positive impact in our society.

E-concert organized by E-Awards Foundation enabling some young talents

On the 14th of April E-Awards organized the so called Curaçao E-concert with lots some young talents for different schools. 

These talents,according to Jessica Colastica of E-Awards Foundation, were all very much into singing since they were a child according to their mothers. By offering them a podium and a training of 2 weeks, these 18 talented singers were able to sing and perform in front of a big audience and this most have been a unforgettable experience for these youth. Some were very shy when they came to their first training, but very little of that was visible when they performed in the parking lot of Sambil from 7 till 11 pm.

This E-Concert was also part of a fundraising effort to collect enough funds to finance the upgrade of music classrooms on schools, to enable even more students to learn and practice music. We commend E-Awards for their efforts to enable youngsters to discover and develop their talents and by doing that improve their self-confidence. We will continue to support E-Awards where ever and whenever possible with the great work they are doing for our youth.
