wnmAs the world of work continues to change, you are naturally concerned about the future that your student is preparing to enter after college. The questions frequently on minds of parents and families focus on many themes related to “What can my student do to be prepared for his/her future career?”‘A Whole New Mind’, by Daniel Pink offers an insightful analysis of the times we live in, and he hones in on key skills that are increasingly in demand regardless of one’s professional choice. As Pink discusses the importance of developing right-brain skills rather than relying on a heavy focus on quantitative/hard skills, he offers practical and manageable advice that will, I believe, be helpful to parents. The concepts covered by Mr. Pink in this engaging publication, will help you as a parent advise your student, as well as instilling reassurance about the future that awaits your future UConn graduate.
