This is what we talked about on The Invisible Mentor Blog this week: Divergent by Veronica Roth, John Stuart Mill, Philosopher and Economist, and Miranda Vande Kuyt, career development professional.
Adventures in Learning
Have you ever been at a cocktail party and didn’t have much to contribute to the conversation? If you read broadly, and not only just books, you will always have something to talk about and contribute to the conversation.
Booked for Mentoring
Divergent by Veronica Roth is set in Dystopian Chicago where the residents are from five factions – Abnegation, Candor, Erudite, Amity and Dauntless – which are the traits that best describe and embody them. Residents have to conform to the norms of their factions.
Wisdom of Life Profile
Take John Stuart Mill, he was the most influential British philosopher of the nineteenth century, his books, A System of Logic: Ratiocinative and Inductive and Principles of Political Economy became textbooks in their fields. Mill made significant contributions to philosophy, economics, political theory and women’s liberation. While Mill was a Member of Parliament, he was the first representative in Parliament to request the right for women to vote.
Interviews for Mentoring
This week we featured career development professional Miranda Vande Kuyt. Miranda got to where she is now because she capitalized on the opportunities that came her way. Here are Part I and Part II of Miranda Vande Kuyt’s interview.
