Programs Overview

Otto co-creates innovative approaches to learning and leadership that he and his colleagues deliver through classes and programs at MIT, through Presencing Institute programs, and through his Global Classroom online program.

MITx U.Lab: Transforming Business, Society, and Self
This highly experiential course is based on Theory U, a framework, method, and way of connecting to the more authentic aspects of our self. It introduces the variable of consciousness into management and the social sciences, and proposes that the quality of the results that we create in any kind of social system is a function of the quality of awareness, attention or consciousness that the participants in the system operate from.


Presencing Foundations Program
A 3-4 day intense introduction into the concepts and practices of Theory U and Presencing. In this program you will learn how to sense and seize future opportunities and how to connect to the deeper journey of your professional and personal life in order to become a more effective leader and change-maker in your work environment.
