Chloe Greenwood and myself welcomed in 18 people to a taster session in Elgin Library.
There was a great mix of backgrounds and interests which we had the joy of hearing about during the introductions. We tried to capture a bit of the rich mix in here:-
We did a mini U process during the day with highlights being the listening exercise and a super standing meditation led by Chloe.
It’s always impossible to capture the energy in a room in a blog post but some of the things which stuck with me are:-
- “I knew idea was just up there waiting to be taken down”
- “lots of like-minded people sharing visions”
- “making small change”
- “what difference am I making”
- “transformational change always involves pain”
- “why do we put things in boxes”
- “it all comes back to wellbeing and if Ulab isn’t about that I don’t know what is”
- “it’s all the same thing, there is only one resource which is ourselves”
- “You cannot solve a problem from the same consciousness that created it” – Einstein.
we enjoyed watching the 3 minute U lab video and had a great discussion about pressure and the fall of the Berlin wall.
It was also awesome to see connections being made around the room – with offers of rooms being freed up for hubs. The true power of these sort of events!
Lots of people seemed keen to sign up for U lab and even better this time around there is a short introductory course aimed at framing your intention for U lab.
Sign up here – NOW!
In this 90-minute introductory course discover how awareness based systems change and a method of learning from the emerging future allow individuals, organizations, and communities to turn ideas into real world change.
By completing this business and management course, you will learn the basics of Theory U, an approach to leading profound change that has been developed by action researchers at MIT, and practiced by leaders around the world, for over 20 years.
You will also join a global community of awareness based change makers that collaborate in manifold change processes across cultures.
This course is a great introduction to Theory U. For a deeper understanding of how to apply the Theory U methodology to issues that matter to you, enroll in u.lab: Leading From the Emerging Future.
