An absolutely breathtaking when you start the journey inside yourself and discover that we all want to change the world but nobody wants to start changing self. So simple yet powerful Otto will take your hand and tenderly turn the camera towards you, a must !!

The course content was very well outlined, I was able to keep up with the journey, the instructor was clear, it was not hard to follow him. My favorite part was the journal exercise, I am pretty sure most of the people would enjoy that part, specially the concepts the instructor provides.

Dopo aver frequentato il mio primo corso con EDX sulla finanza etica (Just Bank) ho conosciuto Otto Scharmer e la U-Theory e me ne sono innamorato. Mi sono iscritto anche al corso che inizia a settembre, credo possa davvero cambiare la vita delle persone, le nostre comunità e il nostro mondo.

Awareness-Based systems Change with u.lab - How to Sense and Actualize the Future is an excellent course and an introduction to 1x. The concepts are based in mindful awareness with some very new concepts around presencing vs absencing. I'm looking forward to 1x!

This is a compact and very informative introductory course about the revolutionary Theory U. U lab will help you find out who are you and what is your work in the context of what you need to do in order to change yourself, the organizations you are related to and society itself. Nothing else! I took the previous ULab course and this one and I highly recommend it.

Participo por tercera vez en esta experiencia. Un deleite de conciencia y vínculo. En las dos experiencias anteriores hice grandes avances en hacer una versión bilingûe, procurando acercar estos conocimientos a quienes no dominan el idioma -mi dominio es mediano, pero con una pequeña ayuda de mis amigos y google translate, se logra mucho-. El detalle es que esta plataforma se renueva con un espíritu juvenil y una profunda destreza y responsabilidad pedagógica. Veremos hasta donde llego en este compartir deseado, en esta jornada.

Great opportunity to be in contact with a very useful concept. If you connect those with Antroposophy concepts than you can have a holystic view of the world and the humanity. I t will be a great experience to participate in the ULAB 1 X which starts tomorrow

Per coloro che parlano italiano: è la terza edizione che seguo ed ogni volta ho incontrato persone, sperimentato situazioni, esplorato possibilità che mi hanno fatto crescere molto e che ho traferito nel mio lavoro, rendendo più fluidi processi e risultati. Ora il corso è disponibile in italiano e un'altra barriera è caduta. Da fare!

Having taken the ULab twice already I welcome this mini-course as a taster / intro / refresher for past and new participants. It explains the essence of the theory and also outlines the course as well as connecting you to your 'why' / own intention.

Concise and to the point. An excellent preparation for Ulabx1 and a well structured introduction for those who are new to Theory U. Having participated in previous Ulabs, it was a good refresher and reminded me what to expect.

Was totally different to what I expected ( and no bad thing). Had never done a proper MOOC and found this one set a v high standard in terms of accessibility,pace and content. Some of the language and tasks took a bit of getting used too but loved the combination of methods and assessments. Also you can choose what parts to do and still gain massively. Highly recommended

Un corso di altissimo livello che mi ha preso sin dai primi passi. Seppur breve, introduce ai temi che verranno sviluppati nella versione 1x (che inizia l'8 di settembre). L'approccio è quello che ha reso la U Theory e lo U Lab unici nel panorama mondiale della cultura. Il team che lo tiene è stato in grado in uno spazio così sintetico di dare il senso corale di questo corso e di quanto i temi toccati siano cruciali per affrontare il tempo che viviamo in modo consapevole. Sul sé e sul mondo un approccio illuminante. Lo consiglio a tutti.

Commplex, yet Simple and Powerful. It introduces the U theory clearly and bridges the concept beautifully to actionables. In its simplicity lies the complexity and the underlining difficulties in adoption. Still in brings to light what is, what could be and what it could take to bring forth what we want to achieve. However clarity of what we want to achieve, is the most difficult to affirm and that will take time, patience, appreciation and the techniques we could consciously adopt from U Theory with U Lab. Thank you.

It inspires to rethink many familiar things. It is helping to create really deep & sustainable personal vision (but not immediately after the course. It takes time). If you don't have a strong confidence in what to do in life and why, than it is a must.

For some years now I have been convinced that we need to develop our awareness to produce real, sustainable innovation. As an engineer my main reference was always MIT. The U-lab course was the strongest acknowledgement, global connector and action driver I have ever come across ! This will be my third round - I hope many more will join this game changing experience !

This was my very first introduction to the subject and I was fascinated by the theory and how it was illustrated. Very moving and inspiring, I look forward to continuing the course and seeing the changes it will bring in my outlook and the way I approach small and large tasks, and choices.
