This is a tool by the Presencing Institute and part of the Theory U methodology. You can also find other Theory U tools in our toolbox (just search for ‘Theory U’) and on the website of Presencing Institute.

To do the Stuck exercise, you first need to identify a place in your life where you feel stuck. That means something you are trying to create is not moving forward. The videos in this tool explain how to use Social Presencing Theater (SPT) to move from that current reality to a more sustainable emerging future. The Stuck exercise can generate insights that are applicable to your real situation.

This tool provides three videos which explain how the stuck exercise is a journey through the U process, how to do the exercise yourself.
