  4. Rules Dials Questions

  5. Keep it Alive! to generate energy

  6. “Keep it ALIVE” DIAL Human Metrics: Watch for Body Language,

  7. ✦ How can I increase aliveness here?

  8. Do it for Real to expand fluent capacity

  9. Learning to Build Fluency Fluency, a.k.a: Fluently Proficient Habitual performance

    Routine, smooth, skillful, ease
  10. “Do it for Real” DIAL Skill-building Metrics: Watch for Doing,
