Theory U - "leading from the future as it emerges"
29 November 2010
Presencing," a blend of the words "presence" and "sensing," refers to the ability to sense and bring into the present one's highest future potential—as an individual and as a group. This approach is promoted by the Presencing Institute (PI) - a global awareness based action research community for profound societal innovation and change.
The Presencing Institute (PI) Capacity Programmes offer regular online training courses on the U-Process and Theory U, a social technology for helping to bring about profound innovation and change. The training covers a set of principles and practices for collectively creating the future that wants to emerge (following the movements of co-initiating, co-sensing, co-inspiring, co-creating, and co-evolving).
Theory U is being applied around the world by individuals, organizations and in multi-sector initiatives generating breakthrough possibilities around pressing organizational and social issues. The focus of this method is on sensing and actualising emerging future opportunities, both individually and collectively
