Over the past two decades Theory U has been developed as a change framework, led cross-sector leadership, change and innovation initiatives worldwide, and created the innovation platform called u.lab. The Presencing Institute activates u.lab as an action research platform at the intersection of science, consciousness, and social and organizational change.
Theory U in short:
U.lab is a platform that blends new tech tools, social change processes, and multi-local community building efforts. It aims to catalyze and scale societal renewal.
Building upon two decades of action research at MIT, the process shows how individuals, teams, organizations and large systems can build leadership capacities needed to address the root causes of today’s social, environmental, and spiritual challenges.
