U.Lab: Transforming Business, Society and Self

U.Lab: Transforming Business, Society and Self

Impact Hub Islington is hosting a U.Lab meet-up group around the new MOOC based on Theory U – a model for transformational change at societal, institutional and personal level – every Wednesday from 6-8pm starting 14 September. The online course has been developed and practised over 20 years by action researchers at MIT and has a strong peer-learning element.

Connecting inner transformation with outer change, the U.Lab takes you through a process of discovering your role in creating a different future. It’s about opening your mind, heart and will to understanding someone else’s point of view, listening deeply, embracing discomfort, understanding systems and creating the conditions for profound change.

It’s a process that matters more today than ever before. In the face of disruptive change such as Brexit, how do we activate our deeper sources of curiosity, compassion and courage rather than reacting out of prejudice, anger or fear? The U.Lab allows us to discover more of ourselves and ensure we act with the right intentions to create the future we dream of.

Profound innovation needs a high quality container and space for learning to take place. The U.Lab is completely free and an experiment in disrupting traditional education systems.

Watch the 90 minute taster session on edX to get an idea of what it’s like. More information and how to sign up to the MOOC is here and please drop Sam Cooper a line (samanthacooper1066@gmail.com) if you’d like to be part of the Impact Hub Islington U.Lab group. The group is open to members from any London Hubs. If you’re not a Hub member but would like to participate, you can join as a connection member for £12 per month (excl. VAT).

We can’t wait to dive into this process with you and have no idea what might happen from there!!
