Dr. Otto Scharmer is a Senior Lecturer at MIT, and founding chair of the Presencing Institute. He chairs the MIT IDEAS program and co-founded the Global Wellbeing Lab. He also is Vice Chair of the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on Leadership. In his books Theory U and Presence(the latter co-authored with Senge, Jaworski, and Flowers) he introduced the concept of "presencing” — learning from the emerging future. His new book Leading From the Emerging Future: From Ego-system to Eco-system Economies (2013) applies mindfulness onto the transformation of business, society, and self.
