Thursday, June 21st at 9am US PDT (16:00 UTC) with Gaia U Associate James Edwards.
Want to learn tools to lead and communicate more effectively? Want to build a network of local changemakers? The world’s most pressing environmental and social challenge is the inability to break habits of thought and belief that make implementing the most visionary solutions impossible. In this 90-minute session, participants will be introduced to Theory U, a pathway to transforming business, society, and self by learning to deepen the quality of awareness, attention, or consciousness from which the participants operate. Theory U emerged from MIT’s renowned Presencing Institute and has been piloted by over 90,000 people in 180 Countries. It presently forms a core decision making process for the governments of Scotland and the Netherlands.
