Two weeks to go until u.lab1x!

The countdown to u.lab1x has begun with only two weeks to go until the course begins.

Whether you’re a returning participant or totally new to u.lab, you can enroll for the online course here. Lasting 13 weeks, the course starts on 13th September and ends mid-December.  It is free to participate in too – you just need access to the internet.

‘Leading from the Emerging Future’ is an introduction to a method called Theory U, developed at the Massachusetts Institute for Technology, for leading profound social, environmental and personal transformation change in business, government, and civil society worldwide. Watch the video below to learn more:

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?

If you’re interested in joining this debate, enroll now and receive a reminder when the course is about to start.

What you’ll learn:

  • The leadership knowledge that matters most: self-knowledge
  • Capacities of deep listening, precise observation, and dialogue
  • Practices for creating institutional innovations that generate wellbeing in society

u.lab will hold a number of ‘real time’ sessions with the course tutors and participants called Live Sessions at the dates and times below.  Mark your calendar for the Sessions (don’t worry, if you can’t make these times, sessions are recorded so you can watch later):

  • Co-initiating – 20 Sept – 15:00 to 16:00
  • Presencing – 18 Oct – 15:00 to 16:15
  • Prototyping – 15 Nov – 15:00 to 16:00
  • Movement Building – 13 Dec – 15:00 to 16:00

There is an introductory module which you need to complete before particpating in the full u.lab course. You can do this any time and takes around 90 minutes to complete.
