Key Takeaway:Listening without judgment is a critical piece of humility.###

Disagreement Activity: Take a moment now and pause the video. Go onto YouTube and find a video of someone arguing for a position you completely disagree with. After watching the video for at least 5 minutes, answer the following questions: 

  1. What was your initial reaction? 
  2. Could you understand why the person believes what he or she does?
  3. Were you able to suspend your personal views in order to listen for understanding, or did your disagreement cause you to struggle to listen?###

Personal Reflection: Now that you’ve completed Humility, let’s take a few minutes to reflect on our learnings. Take a moment to ask yourself three questions:

  1. Do I listen for agreement, or do I listen for understanding? Remember, listening for understanding means that our minds are not formulating responses or objections or corrections to what we hear. Rather, we are simply listening to gain deep insights so we can better understand the values and beliefs of the person speaking. So, how about you, do you listen to determine agreement, or do you listen to simply understand?
  2. Do others see me as a teachable person who listens first? This can be difficult and sometimes requires a few conversations. Perhaps you will find it helpful to ask a few colleagues or family members. Teachability is often associated with meekness. So, the question comes down to: Am I meek, (teachable) or do I speak? 
  3. If it is true that I am the greatest barrier to innovation, what can I do to become the greatest catalyst of innovation? Remember, we believe that, due to the human condition, the person in the mirror is the greatest barrier to innovation. This course is designed to address that condition and give us the tools and mindfulness to become a catalyst to innovation. So, as you continue through the other five modules, keep coming back to this question. ###
Group Discussion: 
  1. How does understanding the perspective of others help your team grow and innovate?
  2. Does your team characteristically operate out of competitive vs. additive, humility vs. assumptions, or judgement, cynicism, and fear? 
  3. How might we begin to build trust, listen with an open mind, heart, and will, and support one another toward a culture of humble innovation?###

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.
