To nurture intellectual humility, we need to create the conditions for respect, trust and mutual regard: in short, a safe and secure environment for vulnerability, mistakes and learning.
Case Western Reserve University, partnering with Reflection Point, creates this space for deepened connection and inclusion. Using facilitated discussions of books and stories, cross-campus colleagues practice relationship skills: listening with humility, asking good questions, challenging assumptions, disagreeing with respect, and widening the circle of empathy.
Tough conversations in today’s world are important, explained one Reflection Point participant. “We respected and worked to understand each other. It practices humility, you know".
In this breakout, CWRU’s Medical Director, the Founder of Reflection Point and a seasoned Reflection Point facilitator will share the outcomes of this unique approach, demonstrating how social-emotional learning and collective exploration builds the foundations of intellectual humility, extending its reach to the farthest corners of the workplace.
