Otto Scharmer will introduce participants to the theory and practice of the U process, based on a concept he calls “presencing.” A blend of the words “presence” and “sensing,” presencing signifies a heightened state of attention that allows individuals and groups to shift the inner place from which they function. When that shift happens, people begin to operate from a future space of possibility that they feel wants to emerge. Being able to facilitate that shift is, according to Scharmer, the essence of leadership today. The presentation will prepare the audience and introduce the concepts of the following “Open Process Labs”. The two sessions of the “Open Process Labs on Saturday and Sunday will involve everybody attending the symposium with the aim, in the sense of Gandhi, “to be the change you want see in the world”.
