DESCRIPTION

Session led by Valerie Jackman, Edinburgh College and Allison Johnstone, Equate Scotland & Edinburgh Napier University.

ULAB is an online course like no other. Each year it brings together tens of thousands of people from around the world to explore how we can tackle some of the world's complex issues. It works on many levels, with a focus on sensing into the future and would be of interest to anybody interested in systems approaches, leadership and management, creating change in themselves or society, consciousness, personal development and culture. If you've ever wondered how you can make a difference then this could well be for you. ULAB creates impact - on individual, organisational, community and societal levels.

ULAB was developed by Otto Scharmer, Senior Lecturer at MIT and a team from The Presencing Institute. In Scotland it is being supported by Scottish Government and there is a special arrangement with the Global U.Lab team with Scottish specific content being included in the teaching materials each week.

One participant said: "On a personal level, it was one of the best learning experiences of my life. The resources were excellent, the opportunity to meet other managers from across a range of sectors was invaluable, the ideas that were generated were fantastic. Tthe shift I have made in terms of how I see and manage myself and my work environment has been remarkable."

The next ULAB session begins in September and is free to access. This short taster event will give you the chance to

  • find out more about the course and what you can hope to get out of it,
  • experience aspects of Theory U (which underpins the course)
  • ask questions about what's involved.

There is no commitment to sign up for the full course, so if you are curious why not come along.

Spaces are limited to a maximum of 20
