A Dinner Conversation: Otto And Nipun!

Two weeks ago, Otto Scharmer and I were visiting California, and met up with Nipun for a casual dinner. It just so happened we had been filming all day, so two of our filmmaker friends were also with us (lugging their equipment along as well). Half way through dinner, Otto had a spontaneous idea: "Let's just turn on the camera." "Now?"  "Yeah, why not?"  "It's too loud in here."  "We can ask them to turn down the music." So we did. And it was still a bit problematic, but we did some improv with boom mics and such. "Are you sure?" we kept pressing Otto. "Yeah, people don't care for all the formalities. They care for heart." (Incidentally, that's how our last conversation was taped, over breakfast in Berlin, en route to the airport.)

And out came three videos, which are now also part of our u.lab curriculum! First one is on the shift from Leadership to Laddership ...

Second one is around distributed and decentralized networks ...

And the last one has a sweet pay-forward story while illustrating the notion of multiple forms of capital ...

Hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed the emergent process!
