Who is Sarah? She is interested in understanding and designing environments and instructional approaches that help people learn how to think.

We are in a big Change of history so She started to study the Systems Theory ..16 years of Ervin Laszlo,s work, this FieldTheory, the new Collec…tive Mind started to show here the insights and the emergence.

Her research focuses on the development of thinking and understanding, learning in and through the arts, and learning in learning communities.
Recent projects include: The Qualities of Dialogue the Syntony Conversations : Excellence in Arts Education and How to Do this, and investing in platform actions to see how arts educators and arts programs in diverse contexts and communities across the United States define the characteristics of excellence—the “qualities of quality”—in arts teaching and learning; Learning in and from Study Centers, an investigation into how visitors learn in the ( Harvard) Art study centers; Artful Thinking, a program that helps classroom teachers use works of art in subjects across the curriculum in ways that strengthen student thinking and learning; and Visible Thinking, an approach to the teaching of thinking that emphasizes the development of thinking dispositions, the use of “thinking routines,” and the documentation of student thinking and learning.
In my short time with Ms Verwei:’ I found her to be warm, open, gracious and introspective – in short, qualities more traditionally associated with women. I felt relaxed, comfortable and unhurried talking with her, in part because she seemed more focused on having a conversation than on announcing or positioning herself.” this is a message receiving from men in business……
By making this observation, I’m reinforcing a stereotype about women — and by implication a parallel stereotype about men, and especially male leaders, as dominant, aggressive and certain. So be it. For all the exceptions, these stereotypes feel true more often than they do not.
If all founders are their first employees, suggests Sarah, it’s essential they treat themselves well—and allow themselves the chance to feel human, to visit the family during the holidays. “As captain of the ship, I’m setting the culture,” she says. “I have to set the example. When we’re ready to hire more people, I want Syntony International to be personnel-friendly, a place where people are happy to come to work.”
Once those last orders went out, Sarah made sure to make the office a saner place to work. She is in a Play and practicing of Pilates and walking long adventures at the beach, no competitions.
Sometimes this sets her a little back. But as she turns the lights off each evening, it only requires a bit of imagination to think of the days when new employees will appreciate this insistence on a sane office culture. “It’s for the greater good,” she says
