Deep Systems


We host leadership and innovation labs and customized programs for organizations

and businesses to support deep system innovation and collaboration in the

context of rapidly changing and challenging environments.

Theory U is a framework at the intersection of science, profound social and organizational change, and consciousness. It has been used by thousands of teams, organizations and communities worldwide to address more effectively our most pressing global challenges: climate change, food systems, inequality and exclusion, finance, healthcare and education.

Growing out of the MIT Center for Organizational Learning, the Presencing Institute (PI) was founded to develop the theory and practice of systems transformation and to support individuals, organizations and multi-sector groups to bring about change in their own contexts.

PI supports organizations, businesses and governments to make the transformations that will allow them to achieve their highest future potential.

PI works with each organization to co-design processes that shift the behaviours and practices within teams and with key stakeholders in order to generate better results for everyone, and allowing them to lead from the future as it emerges.



PI supports institutions, companies, governments, multi-lateral organizations and cross-sector groups to strengthen their capacities for leading system transformation, and achieving greater impact in their work. For example, PI is supporting the United Nations’ leadership teams in 26 countries to help realize the Sustainable Development Goals.
