    🤔 Reflection question

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

    Jermy Mariya's Answer

    Honestly, speaking our team struggled a bit with ideation stage as it was hard for everyone to listen to each others ideas and thought process and act accordingly but listening to those ideas was the one thing that helped me and my team in getting through the stage with ease as each of us put more of ur efforts into it to get a better outcome.

    🤔 Reflection question

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

    Jermy Mariya's Answer

    A person can look just by thinking. Systems thinking is a problem-solving strategy. Normally, when an issue develops, we strive to fix it, but with system thinking, we can tackle everything that surrounds that problem. This mentality also shows you a difficult problem from a variety of views, which can provide critical information and ideas such as approaches.

    🤔 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?

    Jermy Mariya's Answer

    To me, Empathy means to put yourself in one's shoes and understand what someone is going through. By doing the empathy map, I got to know and understand what the disabled and elderly are going through and what were the problems they were facing with accessing transportation and I could also identify and put to use the solutions found.
