Theory U: Leading from the Future as It Emerges
– by C. Otto Scharmer
What if inside of us is the real sense for how things should progress in order to move a system forward or get it unstuck? What if that “little voice” is more than an intuition but a worth-while conversation partner to be listened to in leading a system? What if our sensing of something as the direction it should move is actually great leadership for getting un-stuck? Theory U allows and welcomes this!
The book is lengthy, but worth-while. You can also find very accessible executive summaries that are instructive.
This is a central part of my personal leadership style in helping to move a system.
