    answered "What was your biggest ah-ha moment /mindset shift throughout this process that will support your future of work?" 2021-08-13 06:18:01 -0700
    The realization that I have finally developed self-confidence was my AH-HA moment. Initially, I would have a lot of ideas but would not share due to fear of humiliation. I would suggest one or two ideas in a low tone that were eventually appreciated by my team when they understood what I wanted to communicate. I would always meet my deadlines with the team, go through all instructions thoroughly, and participate in discussions to my full potential. I realized my team found me an active member and would look forward to my ideas and cheer me. I am happy that my innovative solution was introduced as a solution to the social problem we focused on. I got an insight about myself that appreciation motivates me. Throughout the CTN journey, I learned how to cooperate in a team. Once we understand each other, diverse perspectives and unity will be our stepping stone. Down the road, this understanding and patience I developed to cooperate well in a team will help me be part of a healthy work environment and always be a productive employee. Another important mindset shift I had is that I should not directly jump to conclusions. Empathizing is really important to find a useful solution. This will help me be accurate and save time and energy in the future and would make me trustworthy.

    answered "What did you learn about publicly sharing your ideas that you will carry with you in your future of work?" 2021-08-09 13:27:00 -0700
    Idea that I will carry in future is to share a convincing story. People will pay attention to a systematically designed story that binds them and evoke their interest. Then share a tested idea to get the credit you deserve.

    answered "What is the purpose of the prototyping and testing stages in the Design Thinking process?" 2021-08-06 19:46:06 -0700
    The prototyping and and testing stages help to test each and every stage. It helps to test how each stage is making an impact. If these stages are providing desired results, then the solution will be successful too.

    answered "How might ideation, or the skills to brainstorm effectively, show up in your future career?" 2021-08-06 19:25:36 -0700
    I will have a lot of new ideas that I might otherwise never consider thinking them not to be realistic. But these ideas might actually work wonders and help me stay competitive.

    I as a manager will need to understand the employees on personal as well as business level. To build a good relationship and help them achieve work life balance I will need to empathize down the road.
