Theory U - Learning from the future as it emerges

Building upon two decades of action research at MIT, the process shows how individuals, teams, organizations and large systems can build the essential leadership capacities needed to address the root causes of today’s social, environmental, and spiritual challenges. In essence, we show how to update the operating code in our societal systems through a shift in consciousness from ego-system to eco-system awareness.

Otto Scharmer talks about how we, as individuals and collectively as a society, create results no one wants - ecological, social and spiritual divide. He talks about what causes such divides and how we can overcome them. He points out that we need to shift to a mindset where we care about the wellbeing of others instead of just looking out for ourselves. He then introduces us to the U.Lab an online course that aims to change, through introspection, how we interact with ourselves, others and nature so as to create a future of harmony.
