I would like to reply @simone-dalledonne (even if a few days later). About some interesting books to read I’d have a little suggestion although many of you probably already know it. The book I’m talking about now is “Nudge: la spinta gentile” written by Cass Sunstein and Richard Thaler. I read it a short time ago and I loved it so there are a lot of reason why I recommend it very much. First of all, it’s very “soft” and not too complicated to understand (perfect to end a long and intense day of study or work.) Another reason are the main themes covered: the human person at the center and their relationship approach with other people. Resources and capabilities that can be very useful for all of us, especially after hearing about @pistillostefano few days ago. Work in a team could be much easier if we could improve our approach with people or if we learn to make the best decisions. This book is made for this reason, to help people make the right decisions every day in all areas.
In time like these I think it could be very current given the many decisions that we hear on television or news that must be made every single day. I found it really interesting!
Good evening everybody!April 9, 2020 at 11:06 #12067
I would like to say about the meeting with @pistillostefano. First of all, I want to say thank you for the time that you had spent for all of us with your incredible story.
The first thing that I’ve thought after this meeting is the awareness that limits can be only in our mind. A working career successful is not only for for people who graduates with full marks. This it can be possible for everyone that doesn’ stop to believe on that and work on it. I was really impressed by the the perseverance that you had and your personality to not to let yourself be overcome at the first difficulties. I was also impressed by the awareness that the right opportunity would come sooner or later.
Honestly, in my life I’ve never dedicate too much time for extracurricular attivities because I’ve always preferred to concentrate my time to improve my votes and to pass the exams especially. In reality playing football since I was 8 years old the free time was very short and my mind suggested to spend this time with some entertaining attivities, see my friends or workout on my other passions. In the summer when I wasn’t playing football I alterned between work and animator for children in summer camp. I loved to work with other guys with the purpose to entertain a lot of children.
Only in these recent months I’m trying to get activated for other project or activities extracurricular and the things I’m learning are really many. I learned to find pleasure in the path you have chosen to do regardless the final results. It’s for this reason that I’m really happy and grateful to have this opportunity and other two meeting which I’m sure they’ll be equally interesting.
I would also reply to @cbrugo ’s post. I think that this example is really interesting. I’ve never heard about this Jack Ma. A few months ago I think I would not have understood the meaning and purpose of such a declaration. Now I think it’s not all about randomness. In these extracurricular attivities we can traine some skills such as speakinf in front of a lot of people for example. Skills that are impossibile to train in some different ways and that are fundamental for building excellent relationships. (especially after what stefando told where in places like Silicon Valley it’s really frequent to work with new people almost every day)
I never think that it’s too late in life, for this reason I want to get more and more involved.
See you soon!April 4, 2020 at 11:22 #11949
My name is Thomas Gazzera and I have recently obtained a bachelor degree in Management Engineering at the Polytechnic University of Turin. This degree has developed my interest in the disciplinary contents of my course of study and has made me realize that I have made the right choice for my ambitions and goals. For this reason, I have decided to continue my studies by enrolling in a Master’s degree in Management, with a specialisation in logistics.
One of the many reasons that have led me to choose to continue my studies was the desire to acquire more skills and knowledge that, I am sure, will have long term benefits, preparing me for the world of work as well as for a more fulfilling personal life.
During my three years at the Polytechnic University of Turin, I did not have the chance to undergo an internship experience and this leaves me with a bit of bitterness. For this reason, among many others, as soon as I discovered the opportunity of the Silicon Valley Tour about a year ago, I never stopped dreaming of being able to live it in the future. I think there is no better opportunity than to be able to experience face-to-face the excellent environment of companies that are leaders worldwide.
I am excited that I will be able to experience people of different ages, experiences and courses of study, that will help improve myself further. I believe it is important to learn from successful and motivated people, with great ambitions and with different experiences to share and tell.
In these difficult times, I see how technology can be a vital element in resolving many issues. And I cannot think of a better place to improve this technology other than the Silicon Valley.
I hope there will be an opportunity to meet you soon!
