Key Takeaways

  • It is easy for us to share an idea and immediately jump to whether it will or won't work. It is vital when we sit in "what are the possibilities?" that we NOT do that. We need protected space to dream, to put all of the ideas on the table, and build on the ideas of others.
  • Put boundaries around your time.
  • Allow internal processors some time to work and think alone.
  • Quantity over quality!
  • One conversation at a time.
  • Lean into the divergent thinkers in this space!###

Personal ReflectionWhen someone shares an idea with me that I don't like, how do I react? Remember, we must set aside our biases and suspend negative judgment. ###

Group Discussion
  • When was the last time the team had a group ideation session? 
  • What were the outcomes of that meeting?
  • If we had that same meeting today, what would we do differently?###

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
