The session with Frederico has been extremely insightful and motivating! He is genuinely passionate and listened to me carefully, helped me to dispel my doubts once and for all, and gave me new valuable points of view.

I'm so glad to have had the opportunity to converse with him. Again, many thanks!

4.May 2023

Frederico is a great mentor and really great person. He wants you to succeed and helps you in anyway he can. Personally I got a few insights about the recruitment industry I didn't know about and more importantly some great ideas.

Thanks for offering your time like this, it was a pleasure to meet you.

2.March 2023

Fred has been a guiding light within the gaming field for me, always friendly and helpful.

He listens with extreme care to my questions and helps me understand his answers!

If you need guidance I wouldn't suggest anyone else other than Frederico! :)

23.December 2022

Sim, minha sessão com o Fred foi muito boa, inclusive essa não é a primeira, já fizemos 3 encontros para que eu consiga chegar no meu objetivo.

20.September 2022

Fred me ajudou a conseguir um novo emprego. A minha entrevista foi muito boa, estava confiante com tudo que desenvolvi durante as sessões.

10.August 2022

Poder falar com o Fred foi super positivo, tivemos uma troca super legal relacionada a carreira com o foco em games e esports. Disposto a ajudar me contou sobre sua tragetória profissional no cenário e trouxe diversos insights valiosos para me ajudar a se aprimorar e a atingir objetivos profissionais e pessoais.

7.July 2022

Minha 2ª sessão com o Fred. Novamente ele foi capaz de tirar o melhor de mim. Me ajudou muito com o currículo e como me preparar para as entrevistas. Profissional que recomendo muito.

4.July 2022

Fred é muito bom, sempre muito conciso, objetivo e entende suas necessidades para conseguir ajudar da melhor forma. Profissional excelente.

2.July 2022

Fred was a really nice and patient listener during our session. He made sure to understand my background and key points of concern, as well as to share his relevant experience and unique perspective. His suggestions were really precious and on point for the guidance I needed.

22.June 2022

My session was amazing. I had heard about Frederico before, so my expectations for the session were already high... But he managed to exceed all my expectations and managed to lead the conversation very well!!!

He helped me organize ideas and helped me with insights into what I want for my future, and covered my knowledge of the games market and its opportunities. With his realistic view on the current gaming scene, "Fred" managed to reassure me and made me excited about the challenges I will face in my new professional life.

I have no critic for this session!!

17.May 2022

Frederico was amazing in our session! He walked me through different frameworks to update my resume, he gave me tips on how to present myself in interviews and how to prepare myself. He shared great links that I could navigate and give me a confidence boost for my next steps.

I left the session feeling I could go for what I wanted without holding back or self-doubting myself. What a great mentor to have around. I'm already preparing for my next session with him.

24.March 2022

Our session was extremely helpful! Fred gave me a great context of the problem I was going through and was very open to any issues I was having. A great guy, couldn't recommend more!

5.March 2022

I had an interview a few days after my session with Fred and...I got the job on the spot! Our conversation was incredibly helpful and allowed me to prepare properly so I would feel less anxious and more confident. He went over my resume and cover letter and shared constructive feedback on how I could improve them. We talked about cognitive biases in the interviewing process, and I used his tips on how to use them in my favor. He also shared a framework for telling my story; ways to prepare for answering & asking questions; recommendations on how to set up the room and dress for my video call.

Overall I was impressed by how he understood which areas I needed help with and tailored the session to match it. Fred's an attentive listener and a thoughtful speaker who is genuinely interested in helping people succeed. I appreciate him taking the time to help me during a difficult and stressful time, and would highly recommend it to other people who are currently job hunting.

17.January 2022

Fred helped me to evaluate my current position from a different point of view, organize my priorities and understand what I should do next. Also, all the advice that he gave me were things that I never heard before, but I could put into practice in a short period of time and had great results. I'm really looking forward to our next session because I believe that I have still so much to learn with him.

9.September 2021

The session was better than I expected, as this is my first time going through mentoring I was afraid of not being able to ask the right questions and get value out of the session. I'm really surprised how comfortable you made me feel during the process and how your advise was not a "ready recipe" but an approach that inspired me and made me change my thinking towards my career and job hunting experience. Keep up the great work, I wish I had this conversions earlier in my career.

15.August 2021

Fred, our session was indeed really helpful. It was insightful listening to your perspective about the gaming industry, especially the differences between companies (I tended to view them more homogeneous), and now I'm taking that into account for my development plan.

The tips you shared on the presentation also were useful, and I'm working on a PDP for myself. The intrinsic motivation you mentioned is something that I think I'll take a little longer to figure out, but I'll make sure to keep in mind!

Leaving feedback from my POV, we did spend the second half of the session on the presentation, and that makes the conversation a little one-sided. Since you share the document with the mentee afterwards, spending less time on it could be a good call, especially since the conversation about the gaming industry was so interesting!

Again, thank you so much for your time! Rest assured you were able to help one more fellow out here.

13.August 2021

I had a session with Fred to discuss his perspective about hiring product managers, diversity and inclusion at work. The entire session was an energetic exchange of ideas where Fred helped me get a perspective on my challenges and gave me ample examples from his experiences. It was a great sparring session. Thanks Fred!

5.August 2021

The session was insightful.He is a resourceful person being an honest and trustworthy person who doesn’t believe in misleading other people and tries to be fair in everything. Even when things change at the last minute, he was able to adjust accordingly and assisted me as per my convenience ,Please keep inspiring us and What like about session that each experience and events we discussed has a unique approach towards the outcome

Thank you, wishing you good luck!

3.August 2021

A sessão foi muito melhor do que eu imaginava! O Fred de fato consegue materializar seu propósito e motivação de ajudar as pessoas em elementos práticos do dia a dia. Foi sensacional! Recomendo para qualquer um que esteja enfrentando/passando por desafios envolvendo desenvolvimento pessoal e profissional!

23.July 2021

Yes. Frederico performed an excellent mentoring.

All my questions were addressed and cleared. New subjects were raised and Fred was kind enough to provide valuable advice on them. He is very experienced and very relatable, which makes it easier to connect with.

I really do appreciate him taking the time to listen and provide feedback as now I feel more confident towards my personal goals. Can't wait to talk to him again.

21.June 2021

Absolutely! Fred is the most trustworthy and professional person that I know. He not only has the skills and craft, but also an incomparable capability to create rapport with everyone he interacts.

There is not a thing that I think that Fred need to change on his approach. Just keep on doing what you do best and connect with everyone.

2.June 2021

My session was definetely helpful. Although I knew a lot of the things Fred talked about, the conversation helped me organize and complement my knowledge about the gaming market and its opportunities. Frederico is very realistic, and made me feel comfortable and excited for the next challenges I want to face in my professional life.

Unfortunately, all difficulties and questions I had couldn't be resolved in just one session, but it was definetely worth it, because first steps were taken and this was what I expected.

I don't think I have have any critics for this session. =)

21.May 2021

The mentoring session surpassed my expectations. Fred’s extensive knowledge combined with practical experience in people disciplines provided me with several insights to solve issues for both my career and my current position.

21.May 2021

It was such a pleasure to meet Frederico and learn more about his past experience as a Rioter and all the tips he managed to include in our session. I'm positive that his advices and insights will be helpful to my growth as a professional and I'm looking forward to have another meeting sooner than later! Thank you so much for everything =)

17.May 2021

Yes, very!

You were really clear on your statements, always trying to make me think through others' perspectives - which is great. Your objective wasn't telling what I wanted to hear, but to say things to make me think about. It was also a great conversation (having one currently is rare).

30.April 2021

This was definitely the most inspiring hour I had in a very long time! I really enjoyed the atmosphere you created and felt super comfortable talking about positive and negative experiences. The way you challenged my thoughts was super encouraging and not from top to bottom at all.

I just saw now, that your super nice presentation had more slides, but I guess we both forgot a little about them because our conversation was flowing- I feel like you should definitely show them, as they also represent your passion of gaming and give a really nice structure! :-)

Thank you so much for sharing the PDP- File- I will definitely create my own plan.

Could not be any happier with 1. getting to know the mentoring club 2. meeting you and being able to call you a mentor!

28.April 2021

My session was extremely helpful!

I was really excited about this because my career moment is exactly about looking at the big picture to figure out my next step, what I love to do, and also what I don't love to do. So talking to Fred about so many different, and at the same time related, subjects was an experience of mind-opening. Really glad to have the opportunity to talk to a professional so competent!

22.April 2021

The session was enlightening. Although I sought him out because I had doubts about my resume, I ended up realizing that it is time to take a step back to move forward. You were a great listener, knowing where to lead the conversation, where to point out the next step I need to take, which paths to take, and that there is not only one way. In addition, the innumerable insights into how to achieve the goals were accurate and effective. the only problem, I believe, was that the time of 1h was "short" for the number of issues that were dealt with.

21.April 2021

I'd like to publicly thank Fre for the outstanding course of Career Development I've taken with him. I just loved it. It offered me indispensable guidance to pursue a self-evaluation about my human behaviour, and what attitudes I can have to improve my reality. It was also paramount to help me define what direction will I give to my career; picture where I want to be in the long run and plan my present actions to achieve it.

20.April 2021

With great ability and strong active listening, Fred brings a great and enthusiastic energy to the discussion. He also provides insightful information and help in a deeply way on matters related to human behavior interview mapping and career goals planning.

15.April 2021

I got more out of our session than I had hoped for. The combination of your openness, market experience and worldview make for an incredible conversation, and I'm happy I left with homework to do. Our one hour session helped broaden my horizons and set short and mid term targets for my self improvement - I can't thank you enough for your generosity and insights. GG!

11.April 2021

First of all I would like to thank you Fred for your time. I have no words to describe how immersive was our first session. Hear from you all your thoughts and insights about my needs were a greatful and helpful experience. We had some issues with internet connection, but it didn't affect the experience. Can't wait for our next session!

8.April 2021

Overall, our session was clearly structured and extremely useful. I shared my main worries regarding my work experience and he kindly introduced me some tools which I can organize my thoughts. Furthemore, he gave me a lot of advices to maximize my potencial and improve my current skills.

26.March 2021

This was my first session with Frederico and I got a lot more than I expected.

We talked about career choices, HR experiences and best practices, differences between employee experience and employer branding and a very good talk about next career steps that has been kind of blurry to me.

He gave me examples, practical behaviours, shared his personal experiences and helped me understand with those examples how much importance & time invested I should manage to give to try to fulfill my goals.

He even suggested a next conversation and different ways/exercises we can do to enlight a little bit more and help me with motivations, next goals (60-90 days planning) and timing for these new choices. I finished the conversation feeling satisfied, a lot lighter and open minded.

He's a very pleasant and reliable person, it's very clear that he has a lot of experience and knowledge to share, and it was a great experience having the opportunity to share this conversation with him.

The Culture Map - Breaking Through the Invisible Boundaries of Global Business
Erin Meyer

Key Facts and Insights from "The Culture Map - Breaking Through the Invisible Boundaries of Global Business" Understanding cultural differences is crucial for successful business communication and negotiation in the global marketplace. The book presents eight dimensions to map and understand cultural differences: Communication, Evaluating, Persuading, Leading, Deciding, Trusting, Disagreeing, and Scheduling. Each culture falls on a scale within these eight dimensions, which helps in comparing and contrasting different cultures. Communication styles vary greatly between cultures, and misunderstandings can easily occur if these differences are not recognized. Concepts of leadership and decision-making differ greatly among cultures, which can impact how businesses operate and negotiate internationally. The concepts of trust and disagreement also vary significantly across cultures. Understanding these differences can help build stronger, more effective international business relationships. The book includes real-world examples and case studies to illustrate the concepts discussed, making it a practical guide for business professionals. Erin Meyer's Culture Map provides a framework for understanding and navigating cultural differences in a global business context. Cultural intelligence is a vital skill for any business professional operating in a multicultural environment. The book emphasizes the importance of flexibility, adaptability, and open-mindedness in understanding and respecting cultural differences. "The Culture Map" is not only about understanding others but also about understanding oneself’s cultural biases and preferences. Detailed Summary and Analysis "Breaking Through the Invisible Boundaries of Global Business" by Erin Meyer is a comprehensive guide for anyone navigating the complex world of international business communication. The book presents a novel approach to understanding cultural differences, introducing an eight-dimension model that provides a structured way to compare and contrast different cultures. The dimensions – Communicating, Evaluating, Persuading, Leading, Deciding, Trusting, Disagreeing, and Scheduling – act as a map to navigate cultural complexities. In the dimension of Communication, Meyer explains that cultures can be categorized as low-context (where good communication is precise, simple, and clear) or high-context (where good communication is sophisticated, nuanced, and layered). This distinction is particularly crucial as misunderstandings can easily occur if individuals from different cultures do not recognize these differences. Moving on to Evaluating, the book discusses how different cultures give feedback. Some cultures are more direct, others are indirect. Misunderstandings can arise if feedback is interpreted through one's cultural lens without considering these differences. The dimensions of Leading and Deciding are intertwined, as they both deal with hierarchies and decision-making processes. In some cultures, leadership is equated with hierarchical status, while in others, it is more linked to expertise and competence. Similarly, decision-making can either be top-down or consensus-driven, depending on the culture. Trusting and Disagreeing are two more dimensions that vary significantly across cultures. In some cultures, trust is built through business relationships, while in others, it is established through personal relationships. The way cultures handle disagreement can also be very different, with some favoring a confrontational approach and others preferring to avoid open conflict. The final dimension, Scheduling, deals with how different cultures perceive time and deadlines. Some cultures view time as linear and rigid, while others see it as flexible and fluid. The book carefully balances theory with real-world examples and case studies, making it an insightful and practical guide for business professionals. The author emphasizes the importance of flexibility, adaptability, and open-mindedness in understanding and respecting cultural differences. The book encourages readers not only to understand and appreciate others' cultural biases and preferences, but also to recognize and understand their own. In conclusion, "The Culture Map" provides valuable insights and tools to navigate the cultural complexities that characterize today's global business environment. It emphasizes the importance of cultural intelligence as a vital skill for any business professional operating in a multicultural environment. This book is a must-read for anyone seeking to communicate, negotiate, and do business effectively in the international arena.

Thinking, Fast and Slow
Daniel Kahneman

Key Insights from 'Thinking, Fast and Slow' Cognitive Ease: The human brain tends to choose the path of least resistance when processing information. System 1 and System 2: Two distinct systems govern our thought processes. System 1 is fast, intuitive, and emotional, while System 2 is slow, deliberate, and logical. Heuristics and Biases: Our brains use mental shortcuts or 'heuristics' to make quick decisions, which can often lead to biases in our thinking. Prospect Theory: People tend to make decisions based on potential losses and gains, not final outcomes. Anchoring Effect: The first piece of information we receive about a subject heavily influences our perception of subsequent information. Availability Heuristic: We tend to judge the probability of events by how easily examples come to mind. Endowment Effect: We value things more when we own them. Hindsight Bias: Our tendency to see events as more predictable than they really are after they have happened. Framing Effect: The way information is presented can drastically affect how we perceive it and make decisions. The Halo Effect: Our overall impression of a person influences how we feel and think about their character. Deeper Analysis of the Book's Concepts 'Thinking, Fast and Slow', a seminal work by Daniel Kahneman, delves into the two systems that drive the way we think—System 1, which is fast and intuitive, and System 2, slow and deliberate. This dual-process theory of cognition is not new, but Kahneman's exploration of how these systems interact, often leading to cognitive biases, is groundbreaking. System 1 operates automatically and quickly, with little or no effort and no sense of voluntary control. It's the part of our brain that responds to a surprising sound in the darkness or decides to swerve to avoid an accident. This system is heavily influenced by our past experiences and emotions, making its responses feel intuitive and automatic. In contrast, System 2 allocates attention to the effortful mental activities that demand it, including complex computations and conscious decision-making. This system is slower and more deliberate, often stepping in to verify and modify the impressions and intuitions from System 1. However, System 2 is lazy and often defaults to the easier, automatic responses of System 1. This is where cognitive biases come in. Heuristics and biases are mental shortcuts that System 1 uses to make quick decisions. While these shortcuts can often be useful, they can also lead to systematic errors in our thinking. For example, the availability heuristic might lead us to overestimate the likelihood of dramatic events (like plane crashes) because they are more memorable and thus more easily available to our minds. Prospect theory, introduced by Kahneman and his colleague Amos Tversky, challenges traditional economic theory, which assumes that humans are rational actors. Instead, prospect theory suggests that people make decisions based on potential gains and losses, not the final outcome. This can lead to seemingly irrational decisions, such as refusing to take a small loss to potentially gain more in the long run. The anchoring effect describes our tendency to rely heavily on the first piece of information we receive (the "anchor") when making decisions. Even when the anchor is arbitrary or irrelevant, it can dramatically influence our judgments and estimates. Similarly, the framing effect reveals that the way information is presented can drastically affect our decisions. For example, people are more likely to opt for a surgical procedure if it’s presented with a 90% survival rate than a 10% mortality rate, even though both statistics convey the same information. In conclusion, 'Thinking, Fast and Slow' highlights how our thought processes—though powerful—are not always as rational, objective, or logical as we might believe. By understanding these biases, we can take steps to mitigate them and make better, more informed decisions.

Entangled Life - How Fungi Make Our Worlds, Change Our Minds and Shape Our Futures
Merlin Sheldrake

Key Facts and Insights Fungi are responsible for the majority of decomposition on Earth, breaking down organic matter and recycling nutrients back into the ecosystem. Mycorrhizal fungi act as intermediaries between plants and the soil, facilitating nutrient exchange and promoting biodiversity. Fungi can alter their environment to suit their needs, exhibiting a form of intelligence that challenges our traditional understanding of cognition. Fungi are capable of producing a wide range of complex chemicals, including antibiotics and psychoactive compounds. Fungi play a crucial role in human health and disease, as part of our microbiome and as pathogens. Fungi have evolved sophisticated forms of communication and cooperation, including the formation of vast underground networks known as "mycelium". Fungi are an integral part of the Earth's climate system, influencing soil carbon storage and atmospheric chemistry. Fungi can degrade pollutants and waste materials, offering potential solutions for environmental remediation. The study of fungi can offer insights into the fundamental principles of life and the nature of consciousness. Fungi have influenced human culture and consciousness in profound ways, from the use of psychoactive mushrooms in shamanic rituals to the role of yeast in bread and beer production. An In-Depth Summary and Analysis "Entangled Life - How Fungi Make Our Worlds, Change Our Minds and Shape Our Futures" by Merlin Sheldrake is a fascinating exploration of the world of fungi, their ecological roles, and their impact on human society and consciousness. The author, a biologist with a deep understanding of mycology, presents a compelling case for the importance of fungi in shaping our world and our future. The book begins with an overview of the basic biology of fungi, their evolutionary history, and the various roles they play in the Earth's ecosystems. Fungi are responsible for most of the decomposition on Earth, breaking down organic matter and recycling nutrients back into the ecosystem. This process, known as saprophytism, is essential for the maintenance of soil fertility and the overall health of ecosystems. Sheldrake also discusses the role of mycorrhizal fungi, which form symbiotic relationships with plants, facilitating nutrient exchange and promoting biodiversity. Sheldrake then goes on to explore the intelligence of fungi, arguing that they are capable of altering their environment to suit their needs, exhibiting a form of cognition that challenges our traditional understanding of intelligence. He illustrates this with examples of fungal behaviour, such as the ability of slime molds to solve mazes and the formation of vast underground networks known as "mycelium" which facilitate communication and cooperation among fungi. The author also delves into the chemical abilities of fungi, which can produce a wide range of complex molecules, including antibiotics and psychoactive compounds. These compounds have had a profound impact on human health and consciousness, from the use of penicillin to treat bacterial infections to the use of psilocybin mushrooms in shamanic rituals and psychotherapy. Sheldrake suggests that the study of these compounds could lead to new treatments for mental health disorders and novel insights into the nature of consciousness. Sheldrake also considers the role of fungi in human health and disease, both as part of our microbiome and as pathogens. He discusses the complex interactions between fungi and our immune system, and the potential for fungal infections to become a major public health issue in the future. The book also explores the role of fungi in the Earth's climate system, influencing soil carbon storage and atmospheric chemistry. Sheldrake argues that fungi could play a crucial role in combating climate change, either by sequestering carbon in the soil or by degrading pollutants and waste materials. In the final chapters of the book, Sheldrake reflects on the philosophical implications of his research, suggesting that the study of fungi can offer insights into the fundamental principles of life and the nature of consciousness. He also discusses the influence of fungi on human culture, from the use of yeast in bread and beer production to the role of mushrooms in art and mythology. In conclusion, "Entangled Life" is a thought-provoking and comprehensive exploration of the world of fungi. Through his engaging narrative and deep scientific understanding, Sheldrake invites readers to reconsider their perception of fungi, highlighting their importance in shaping our world and our future. As we face the challenges of the 21st century, from climate change to mental health crises, it is clear that we have much to learn from these remarkable organisms.

Think Again - The Power of Knowing What You Don't Know
Adam Grant

Key Facts and Insights from "Think Again - The Power of Knowing What You Don't Know" Power of Unlearning: The book emphasizes the need to unlearn outdated beliefs, opinions, and knowledge to make room for new, relevant insights. Intellectual Humility: Grant underlines the importance of intellectual humility, which involves recognizing the limits of one's knowledge and being open to others' perspectives. Re-thinking Vs. Persistence: The book challenges the traditional view of persistence and determination as the keys to success, suggesting instead that success can often be found through re-thinking and changing course. Scientist Mindset: Grant proposes that we should adopt a 'scientist mindset', where we constantly test our beliefs and assumptions, and adapt them based on new evidence. Feedback and Criticism: The book encourages embracing criticism and feedback as tools for growth and improvement rather than perceiving them as personal attacks. Role of Emotions in Decision Making: Grant highlights how our emotions can impact our decision-making abilities and hence, the need to manage them effectively. Groupthink and Collective Overconfidence: The book warns against the dangers of groupthink and collective overconfidence, which can lead to poor decision making and inhibit innovation. An In-Depth Analysis In "Think Again - The Power of Knowing What You Don't Know", Adam Grant introduces readers to the concept of rethinking – the ability to question your old beliefs and update them based on new information. The central premise of the book is that in a rapidly changing world, it's essential to reconsider and revise our beliefs, strategies, and plans, rather than stubbornly sticking to them. The book starts by exploring the power of unlearning. This refers to the process of letting go of outdated or inaccurate beliefs and knowledge to make room for new and more relevant insights. This aligns with Thomas Kuhn's theory of paradigm shifts in scientific revolutions, where new scientific discoveries often require us to discard old theories. Grant stresses the importance of intellectual humility, a trait that involves acknowledging the limits of our knowledge and being open to others' perspectives. This is in line with psychological research showing that intellectual humility is associated with better decision-making and more effective learning. He also challenges the commonly held belief that success comes from persistence and determination. While these traits can certainly be useful, Grant argues that they can also lead to rigid thinking and resistance to change. Instead, he suggests that we should be willing to re-think our strategies and plans in the face of new evidence. This resonates with Carol Dweck's work on "growth mindset", which emphasizes the value of flexibility and adaptability. In addition, Grant promotes the adoption of a 'scientist mindset', where we constantly test our beliefs and assumptions and adapt them based on new evidence. This is reminiscent of Karl Popper's philosophy of science, which posits that scientific knowledge progresses through the falsification of existing theories. The book also highlights the importance of feedback and criticism in promoting growth and improvement. This is consistent with research in the field of positive psychology, which shows that constructive feedback can enhance performance and job satisfaction. Another key theme in the book is the role of emotions in decision making. Grant underscores how our emotions can cloud our judgment and impair our decision-making abilities. This aligns with Daniel Kahneman's work on cognitive biases, which demonstrates how our emotions can lead us to make irrational choices. Finally, Grant warns about the dangers of groupthink and collective overconfidence. He argues that these phenomena can stifle innovation and lead to poor decision making. This echoes Irving Janis's seminal work on groupthink, which shows how group pressures can lead to flawed decision-making processes. In conclusion, "Think Again" is a thought-provoking book that encourages us to challenge our beliefs, embrace uncertainty, and stay open to new ideas. It aligns with several well-established theories and findings in psychology and offers valuable insights for anyone looking to improve their thinking and decision-making skills.
