u.lab: Leading From the Emerging Future (edX)

Created by:Delivered by:

An introduction to leading profound social, environmental and personal transformation.

We live in a time of disruptive change. How to activate our capacity to lean into the emerging future may well be the most important leadership challenge of our time. How do you cultivate curiosity, compassion and courage in the face of prejudice, anger and fear?

This course is an introduction to a method called Theory U, developed at MIT, for leading such change in business, government, and civil society contexts worldwide.

The only pre-requisite for this course is u.lab 15.671.0x, an introductory overview--which you can complete in just 90 minutes. Building on the intention you set in u.lab 15.671.0x, 15.671.1x will help you to apply the Theory U method to an issue that matters to you, with fellow change makers locally and around the world. Join us as we co-pioneer new approaches to today’s most important social and environmental challenges using a method of awareness based systems change.

What you'll learn:

- The leadership knowledge that matters most: self-knowledge (Who am I? What is my Journey and Work?)

- Capacities of deep listening, precise observation, and dialogue

- Practices for creating institutional innovations that generate well-being in society
