Targeting Life Skills Wheel
The TLS Model is intended to be inclusive for all possible life skills. The terminology in the TLS Model is not the same as that used in any one other current list of life skills. By being generic, the model allows those developing curriculum to incorporate any specific life skill that youth programmers may wish to address using whichever terminology is descriptive of that skill.

The purpose of the TLS Model is to provide a way to simplify coordination of life skill development with ages and stages tasks so programs will be developmentally appropriate and more effective in achieving identified outcomes.

5 Minds for the Future by Howard Gardner

 

Five Minds for the Future outlines the specific cognitive abilities that will be sought and cultivated by leaders in the years ahead.

These include:

  • The Disciplinary Mind: the mastery of major schools of thought, including science, mathematics, and history, and of at least one professional craft.

  • The Synthesizing Mind: the ability to integrate ideas from different disciplines or spheres into a coherent whole and to communicate that integration to others.

  • The Creating Mind: the capacity to uncover and clarify new problems, questions, and phenomena.

  • The Respectful Mind: awareness of and appreciation for differences among human beings and human groups.

  • The Ethical Mind: fulfillment of one’s responsibilities as a worker and as a citizen.

Gardner draws from a wealth of diverse examples to illuminate these ideas, designed to inspire lifelong learning and also to provide valuable insights for those charged with training and developing organizational leaders.

Drawing on decades of cognitive research and rich examples from history, politics, business, sc

ience, and the arts, Gardner writes for professionals, teachers, parents, political and business leaders, trainers, and all who prize the cognitive skills at a premium for tomorrow.
