According to the dictionary, the definition of the phrase group is: “a sense of fellowship with others, because of sharing frequent attitudes, pursuits, and objectives”. Without a doubt we are able to say the Spotify Stars Program shares an actual sense of group. After all, we have now frequent attitudes, we partake in frequent pursuits and we comply with frequent objectives. But there’s one factor we share that is extra vital than something: our values.

 

With the spirit of a real group, since 2021, we yearly take a second to recollect and reinforce the core of the Spotify Stars Program and the Spotify Community as an entire in a sequence of occasions we name VALUES WEEK!

 

The values are:

 

  • RESPECT
  • INCLUSION
  • SUPPORT
  • TEAMWORK
  • FUN
  • RESPONSIBILITY

We reached the ultimate of Values Week 2024 (VW 2024), which had the slogan “A toast to our values”, and I needed to share with you all the small print of what we did throughout this final week.

 

If you are already a follower of our program, you might know every day represents a worth and we had totally different actions that dropped at our minds what it means to be a Spotify Star. 

 

On Monday, we introduced RESPECT to the middle of our celebrations and we kicked it off with a quote from the scientist and physicist Albert Einstein which says: “Everyone ought to be revered as a person, however nobody idolized”. It was a second to replicate on how we are able to share concepts and a sense of group, with out breaking into our mates’s area. We shared totally different songs that represented this essential worth, bringing the chance to replicate upon it.

 

Going additional, on Tuesday, it was time to debate INCLUSION. There is not any actual inclusivity if we do not have respect to grasp the opposite one’s actuality and there’s no higher method, right here in our group, to signify inclusion than opening area to share music. Some Stars and Moderators created collectively a playlist with totally different significant songs from all over the world and @Joan composed a incredible weblog sharing these songs and diving into the worth of the day. We bought the chance to additionally replicate on that, particularly with the quote from the designer, Prabal Gurung that claims “Beauty is inclusion – each dimension, each coloration – that is the world I dwell in”. 

 

On Wednesday, one other splendid day to have fun another worth: SUPPORT. Bear Grylls, a British trooper, says “Our delight will be our downfall, and we have to study when to show to others for assist and steering”. And this worth represents quite a lot of what we do right here each day after we assist to everybody who involves us, searching for assist. With this in thoughts, why not have fun SUPPORT with a problem the place the principle level is to assist? The Stars had the prospect to collaborate on totally different boards of the group and collect some further factors as a prize.

 

One step ahead, on Thursday, TEAMWORK was on the desk, bringing one other huge problem, however this time, to be solved collectively along with your fellows. Some Stars fashioned totally different groups to resolve actual circumstances from customers who got here right here to the group with points or doubts. It was a terrific alternative to reinforce our teamwork expertise by doing what we like to do: assist 😊

 

But this wasn’t the one exercise of the day – we additionally had a particular name with a greater than particular visitor: Dan, from the Spotify for Desktop workforce. We had the prospect to speak to him in regards to the new desktop interface and to get a sneak peek of what is coming subsequent on the platform (however do not ask us about it, as a result of we all know tips on how to hold a secret 😉). It was, as all the time, a pleasant dialog and we won’t waste the chance to say that Dan is all the time greater than welcome to talk with us!

 

On Friday it was lastly time to have some FUN. We take into account it equally essential as the opposite values. And we like to have enjoyable by doing what – that is proper, listening to music! 🎶

 

Do you do not forget that playlist I informed you about a couple of paragraphs in the past? It was time to get collectively on a Party Call to expertise these songs collectively. And undoubtedly, it was a incredible time hosted by my mate @Jose_M. He is aware of tips on how to be an superior grasp of ceremonies!

To end the week with a gold key – on Saturday it was time for RESPONSIBILITY. Bob Dylan stated as soon as: “A hero is somebody who understands the accountability that comes together with his freedom”. We had the prospect to replicate on another worth and likewise to get pleasure from further factors for our contribution right here in this system.

 

I could not end this with out thanking the group moderators and managers, who made this nice occasion doable!
