Robleh Kirce, managing partner at NextArrow, will lead a new course at UCOP.

The UCOP Learning and Development team is excited to launch a new online workshop, Critical and Creative Thinking, taking place virtually on June 27, from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. PT.

In this workshop, you’ll explore individual and collective strategies and techniques for improving critical and creative thinking. We’ll cover common biases that stymie creative and critical thinking, articulating disagreement without being disagreeable, overcoming psychological fixedness and harnessing productive brainstorming. You’ll learn how to:

  • Ask assumption-busting questions
  • Redefine your goals to promote creative thinking
  • Think from opposite perspectives
  • Look for disconfirming evidence

This class will be led by Robleh Kirce, managing partner at NextArrow. Robleh has more than a decade of experience working directly with executive and leadership teams to develop people practices that promote retention, performance and engagement. His background in industrial-organizational psychology and insights from working with some of the world’s most rapid-growth tech companies give him a training style focused on effective tools and practical wisdom. Robleh has worked extensively with international management teams across Europe focusing on management tools that translate across cultures.
