Teddy Bobo Film Club: Series 11 (OPV: Other People’s Viewpoint)

Teddy Bobo Film Club: Think Outside the Screen ™

The Teddy Bobo Film Club will hold its eleventh series of short films + constructive thinking skills, this Friday evening (March 02 2012) in Richmond (Melbourne, Australia).

The Edward de Bono method we’ll be working with this session will “OPV” (Other People’s Viewpoint).

Edward de Bono: Many thinking situations involve other people. What these other people think is just as much part of the situation as the factors, the consequences, the objectives, etc. which one should consider, explore and include in one’s own thinking.

These other people may have a very different viewpoint! Although they are in the same situation, they may look at things quite differently. It is a very important part of thinking to be able to tell how other people are thinking; trying to see things from another person’s viewpoint is what doing an OPV is about.

Teddy Bobo Film Club, Series 7: Friday November 18

Teddy Bobo Film Club: THINK OUTSIDE THE SCREEN ™

The Teddy Bobo Film Club will hold its seventh series of short films + constructive thinking skills, this Friday evening in Richmond (Melbourne, Australia).

The Format

  1. Entertainment: A number of very short (under 3 minutes) films, videos, and film excerpts from vastly different genres are presented.
  2. Film appreciation: After each film is screened, there is a brief period of study and discussion of the film – its background, the purpose it is meant to serve, what makes it distinctive, its production values, any curious observations, appreciation of its art and technology, etc. We call this segment “think inside the screen”.
  3. Thinking skill: Then, bouncing off some aspect of the film, a tightly-focused thinking exercise, led by Coach Prodos, and using the formal lateral thinking and constructive thinking methods developed by Edward de Bono is conducted! This is the think outside the screen™ segment. These exercises are not puzzles. They are not IQ games. They are not “positive thinking”. They’re simple tried and true methods which, as you practice, will improve your constructive & creative thinking skills.
