Otto’s hope for the future is that we get our act together!
And do a consciousness based systems intervention.

Otto Scharmer Show

Dr. C. Otto Scharmer is a Senior Lecturer at MIT and co-founder of the Presencing Institute. In 2015 he co-founded the MITx u.lab, a massive open online course for leading profound change that has since activated a global eco-system of societal and personal renewal involving more than 100,000 users from 185 countries.

I am exited about using technology more intentionally for developing social technologies that allow us to create and activate generative social fields .

It has to do a shift in consciousness that can support a new way of doing systems thinking.

We are global moment not yet aware of ourselves.

Connecting to the current moment.
The knowing – doing gap!
Action learning.

You can not understand a system unless you change it. The litmus test.

To work with a a political in a new way.

If people in Silicon Valley give away their money they usually there criteria for doing so:
1 Tech has to be the solution.
2 It must be solvable with 10 years.
3 They have to call the shot.

We need to get our act together and improve the topsoil.

We are in critical moment where so much positive things are happening and yet we are not catalyzing as a movement yet. What are the infrastructure for catalyzing and amplifying the movement. So that the moment becomes aware of it self.



We live in an age of disruption.
Where something is ending and dying.
And where something else is waiting to be born.

What is ending and dying is a civilisation that’s built on a mindset of maximum me, of bigger is better and of special interest group driven decision making that have lead us to a world of organised irresponsibility.

What’s being born is less clear.
It’s a future that requires us to connect with a deeper level of our humanity.
To discover who we really are and who we want to be as a society.

How can we build the capacity to sense and actualise a future we feel is possible, we know is possible, but that isn’t quite there yet?
To really profoundly change the world requires us to connect to our emerging self.
And in order to discover who you really are, you need to go out into the world.
And yet I believe that the most significant disruptive change of our generation is yet to come.

It has to do with the transformation of capitalism itself. The transformation of capitalism depends on our ability to reshape how we connect to each other, to the system and to ourself.

To really discover who you are you have to go out into the world.
