consider some variables in his thinking and decision making. For example, the other day he asked me whether or not I thought that he should do something as a part of his project. My question back to him was: What do you think that I would need to know in order to answer that question? We talked through the variables related to the decision, but this will be a critical skill for him to develop for any job going forward.
the quantitative aspect of this (critical thinking and problem solving) is where Danilo can improve -- really thinking about how to take different tasks that are typically not quantified an turning them into quantifiable entities.
communication - Danilo can work to ensure he is giving full context to his manager and colleagues when presenting them with a situation where he needs guidance or asking a question. Don't assume that that person knows what is inside your head, or even why you are asking.
