    πŸ€” Reflection question

    How might the prototype & test stage help you with overcoming a fear of failure or challenging your assumptions about what is β€˜right’?

    Jeen's Answer

    Prototyping is critical because it is necessary to test an idea before implementing it. As a result of the testing, we know how they succeeded, and we know what problems and challenges they face, as well as how we solve those issues and become successful during the implementation of a specific idea. This challenge was really important because we are aware of the current situation and different points of view.

    πŸ€” Reflection question

    How might ideation help you develop your active listening skills to brainstorm and reflect on ideas effectively with your team?

    Jeen's Answer

    Our team struggled with the Ideation stage, which included intense brainstorming to find different ideas and how each idea might fit in the ideate canvas. However, it helped us in thinking from a different perspective and come up with new ideas to solve the problem. We listened to and discussed each other's ideas as we completed the ideate template, and it was a great way to improve our team's active listening skills.

    πŸ€” Reflection question

    How might you explain the value of you having a systems-thinking mindset when attempting to define and understand a complex problem?

    Jeen's Answer

    The systems thinking mindset assists us in grasping the various components of a given problem. It assists us in resolving the problem as well as any other issues that may arise as a result of the problem or its resolution. The iceberg model assisted us in understanding the underlying causes of the problem and the related issues. However, understanding the main concept of system thinking will be very helpful in solving the problem; additionally, we will be able to understand the main point more easily. And the How Might We Worksheet supported us in gaining a new perspective on our root cause.

    πŸ€” Reflection question

    After learning about how to empathize with the people affected by your SDG’s social issue, how you might apply empathy to working with the members on your CTN Innovation Team?

    Jeen's Answer

    The empathize module enabled me to see and feel the emotions and struggles of others and their strengths, especially my teammate.Β  Empath mapping was an excellent exercise for challenging what we hear, see, and feel. We went through several empathy mapping exercises to identify common denominators among our stakeholders. It has shown me that empathy can and should be a way through which we look no matter who we are dealing with. This helped us gain a deeper understanding of the stakeholder's situation, wants needs, and expectations, and helped us connect with them.Β

    πŸ€” Reflection question

    What did you personally learn about the process of creating your team canvass?

    Jeen's Answer

    It was actually an icebreaker for our group. We were more comfortable with our group after this activity. Everybody reflected on their own limitation and strengths. we assigned each member a role based on their strengths. And we are determined to work on our limitations.

    After completing the Mobius Strip exercise, what do you feel are next steps towards contributing to the community you care about?

    Jeen's Answer

    This Mobius strip activity is fantastic! It supports me in identifying my skills and areas for improvement, as well as identifying community needs. The entire planet is interconnected. We have the ability to solve issues within ourselves if we try together.
