I came to know the mentoring club a couple of days before a scheduled my first session with Elias (first ever mentoring session), I was a bit skeptical about the concept, but after going through with it, I am going to make sure that we have a session on a weekly basis. Elias is very mindful, thoughtful, and knowledgeable, with tons of real-life tangible experiences that can help any person who is trying to make it and succeeded in this world. His approach to the session was structured, and he made it a point to listen to everything I had to say.

I would certainly recommend Elias to anybody who'd want to improve their life and have an amazing conversation.

As discussed during our session, before i would have a couch with specific targets in order to get tangible results, i am not experienced with mentoring therefore i do not know how to measure success on it. in general it was a good discussion that will further help in the future. Elias give a good vibe, seems knowledgeable on the subject, doesnt portray to be a figure of authority but more like a helping hand along the path to development. for me it is a helpful session and i can recommend it.

What is this Thing Called Theory of Constraints and how Should it be Implemented?
Eliyahu M. Goldratt

The Choice
Eliyahu M. Goldratt, Efrat Goldratt-Ashlag

The Choice, revised edition, by Eliyahu M. Goldratt and Efrat Goldratt-Ashlag Goldratt presents his thought provoking approach, this time through a conversation with his daughter Efrat, as he explains to her his fundamental system of beliefs. The revised edition includes Efrat's own notes and maps (charts) she made during her conversations with her father, helping the reader determine the true essence of the book. From the original publication: TOC has been successfully applied in almost every area of human endeavor, from industry to healthcare to education. And while Eli Goldratt is indeed a scientist, an educator and a business leader, he is first and foremost a philosopher; some say a genius. He is a thinker who provokes others to do the same. Often characterized as unconventional, and always stimulating a slayer of sacred cows Dr. Goldratt exhorts his readers to examine and reassess their lives and business practices by cultivating a different perspective and a clear new vision.

The Art of War

Castoriadis and Autonomy in the Twenty-first Century
Alexandros Schismenos, Nikos Ioannou, Chris Spannos

To what degree can the philosophy of Cornelius Castoriadis help analyze and evaluate our current social reality in relation to the project of autonomy? How meaningful is his political proposition for direct democracy in the 21st century? What significance do the concepts of social time and social space have in the determination of political freedom? Castoriadis and Autonomy in the 21st Century presents basic concepts of Castoriadian philosophy, including the social-historical plane, ontological creativity, and social and individual time that provide the theoretical tools to evaluate the historical phenomena of our era. Drawing from Greece's own turbulent past and the current global crisis to reveal new significances of social freedom, global solidarity and movements of direct democracy, this book explores social autonomy and human freedom today through critical dialogue with Castoriadis' ideas.

Design Thinking - A Guide to Creative Problem Solving for Everyone
Andrew Pressman

Design thinking is a powerful process that facilitates understanding and framing of problems, enables creative solutions, and may provide fresh perspectives on our physical and social landscapes. Not just for architects or product developers, design thinking can be applied across many disciplines to solve real-world problems and reconcile dilemmas. It is a tool that may trigger inspiration and the imagination, and lead to innovative ideas that are responsive to the needs and issues of stakeholders. Design Thinking: A Guide to Creative Problem Solving for Everyone will assist in addressing a full spectrum of challenges from the most vexing to the everyday. It renders accessible the creative problem-solving abilities that we all possess by providing a dynamic framework and practical tools for thinking imaginatively and critically. Every aspect of design thinking is explained and analyzed together with insights on navigating through the process. Application of design thinking to help solve myriad problems that are not typically associated with design is illuminated through vignettes drawn from such diverse realms as politics and society, business, health and science, law, and writing. A combination of theory and application makes this volume immediately useful and personally relevant.

The Philosophy of Metacognition - Mental Agency and Self-Awareness
Joรซlle Proust

Does metacognition, i.e. the capacity to form epistemic self-evaluations about one's current cognitive performance, derive from a mindreading capacity, or does it rely, at least in part, on sui generis informational processes? In The Philosophy of Metacognition Joรซlle Proust provides a powerful defense of the second position. Drawing on discussions of empirical evidence from comparative, developmental, and experimental psychology, as well as from neuroscience, and on conceptual analyses, she purports to show that, in contrast with analytic metacognition, procedural metacognition does not need to involve metarepresentations. Procedural metacognition seems to be available to some non-humans (some primates and rodents). Proust further claims that metacognition is essentially related to mental agency, i.e. cognitive control and monitoring. 'Self-probing' is equivalent to a self-addressed question about the feasibility of a mental action ('Am I able to remember this word?'). 'Post-evaluating' is a way of asking oneself whether a given mental action has been successfully completed ('Is this word the one I was looking for?'). Neither question need be articulated conceptually for a feeling of knowing or of being right to be generated, or to drive epistemic control. Various issues raised by the contrast of a procedural, experience-based metacognition, with an analytic, concept-based metacognition are explored, such as whether each is expressed in a different representational format, their sensitivity to different epistemic norms, and the existence of a variety of types of epistemic acceptance.

Leadership and Change Management - A Cross-Cultural Perspective
Daphne Halkias, Joseph C. Santora, Nicholas Harkiolakis, Paul W. Thurman

A leaderโ€™s role in the management of change is a critical issue for successful outcomes of strategic initiatives. Globalization and economic instability have prompted an increase in organizational changes related to downsizing and restructuring in order to improve financial performance and organizational competitiveness. Researchers agree that a leaderโ€™s inability to fully understand what is needed in order to guide their organization through successful change can be a reason for failure. Proper planning and management of change can reduce the likelihood of failure, promote change effectiveness, and increase employee engagement. Yet, change in organizations must be viewed as a continuous activity that affects both organizational and individual outcomes. If change management can be considered as an event induced by socio-cultural factors, the cultural variable gains greater significance when applied to the quality of the relationship between a leader and their team. Many organizations today are on the verge of internationalization. It is here that the cultural context can affect behaviors and, in the same way, leadership style. The research presented in this book by an eminent group of scholars explores the influence of culture โ€“ ethnic, regional, religious โ€“ on how leaders manage change within organizations.

The Magic of Mentoring - Developing Others and Yourself
Carol Thompson

The Magic of Mentoring offers an introduction to the theory and practice of successful mentoring together with a unique focus on how mentors can reflect on the skills they bring to the role, and those they still need to develop. Through the use of scenarios, reflections and stories, the reader is encouraged to apply the content to a real context, demonstrating the importance of reflection for both parties and the benefits derived from this, especially those related to understanding ourselves and others. Written by Carol Thompson, who has worked with a range of trainee teachers and mentors, this book draws from the authorโ€™s own experience to explore the importance of self-development, and the ways in which this can be enhanced through practice. Reviewing key themes in relation to mentoring, including models and current practice, it considers the creation of a nurturing environment through effective communication as well as acknowledging the need to generate the right challenge for mentees. All aspects of mentoring are outlined, emphasising how personal development can improve the experience of your mentees, build your own confidence, enhance your transferable skills, and advance your own professional practice and relationships. Engaging activities are provided for mentors to undertake to support their own professional development. The Magic of Mentoring is an ideal guide for all those studying coaching or mentoring on a formal programme or for anyone who mentors others in formal or informal settings. The structure of 15 concise chapters lends itself to referencing back and targeted reading for specific guidance.

Language and Problems of Knowledge - The Managua Lectures
Noam Chomsky

Language and Problems of Knowledge is Noam Chomsky's most accessible statement on the nature, origins, and current concerns of the field of linguistics. He frames the lectures with four fundamental questions: What do we know when we are able to speak and understand a language? How is this knowledge acquired? How do we use this knowledge? What are the physical mechanisms involved in the representation, acquisition, and use of this knowledge? Starting from basic concepts, Chomsky sketches the present state of our answers to these questions and offers prospects for future research. Much of the discussion revolves around our understanding of basic human nature (that we are unique in being able to produce a rich, highly articulated, and complex language on the basis of quite rudimentary data), and it is here that Chomsky's ideas on language relate to his ideas on politics.The initial versions of these lectures were given at the Universidad Centroamericana in Managua, Nicaragua, in March 1986. A parallel set of lectures on contemporary political issues given at the same time has been published by South End Press under the title On Power and Ideology: The Managua Lectures. Language and Problems of Knowledge is sixteenth in the series Current Studies in Linguistics, edited by Jay Keyser.
