BENEFITS OF SOCIAL EXCELLENCE
Social Excellence: We Dare You by Matthew G. Mattson, Jessica Gendron Williams & Josh Orendi
"An inspiring guide to finding a richer life full of meaning -- and changing the world. Relationships create revolutions, and these authors are starting a bold movement."
Social Excellence is a philosophy, a way to approach your days, a lifestyle. Characterized by handshakes, deep, meaningful conversations, and heart-to-heart connections, people who choose Social Excellence as their lifestyle understand that human connection is the key to changing the world.
This book, overflowing with real-life examples of Social Excellence in action, is not a book to be read in quiet solitude. It is a book that dares the reader to engage with the people and society around them. The authors describe how to build masterful social skills, tell stories of how people have changed the world through interpersonal connection, and challenge readers to push their social comfort zones to the max through edgy Social Dares.
As technological connections increase, personal, human, face-to-face connections can suffer. But those human connections are vital to organizational success and personal fulfillment. Social Excellence is the key to standing out from the crowd, to lifting your eyes from the screen and seeing the faces of potential relationships around you, and to creating the world you imagine.
Social Excellence: We Dare You is written to inspire community leaders, organizational members, non-profit volunteers, religious congregations, business leaders, political advocates, high-performing students, and anyone who is seeking a way to truly matter in the world.

How Does Phired Up Teach Social Excellence?
The advanced learning kicks in with the introduction of the concept of powerful conversations, and what it takes to consistently have these life-changing, transformative, intense engagements. They learn about the “fun zone” and the “deep zone.” They learn to “Be the Person” they want to be. All of this is taught through highly interactive activities that have the participants not just talking about the concepts, but doing them and actually networking with the people in the room. At the end of the classroom sessions, participants are often seen thanking each other for being authentic and vulnerable, they often hug one another (seriously) and find ways to stay connected with many of the participants they interacted with. And that is when Phired Up pushes the learning even further with social dares that actually send the participants “into the streets” to let the real-world learning begin. Social Excellence is best learned through personally challenging oneself to experiment with new behaviors and levels of courage, and that is exactly what Phired Up delivers.
