Theory U 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.

In this unique video, Stephen Gilligan draws upon the theory of U (Senge & Sharmer 2004) to describe how we experience change in our lives.
