NOTE: You are now visiting the School of Thinking, the first school on the internet. This site is the school and is not our commercial website.
The School of Thinking (SOT) is for mastery in lateral thinking. SOT provides students with knowledge, with tools and with coaching and nudging, every day. It is 100% online.
SOT was co-founded in New York in 1979 by Michael Hewitt-Gleeson and Edward de Bono.
It was established in Australia in 1988 by Michael Hewitt-Gleeson.
SOT teaches lateral thinking as a skill because lateral thinking is not natural. It's very powerful and has to be mastered. It is for thought-leaders. It's opt-in. It's elite. It's not for everyone.
SOT's lateral thinking training is science-based. It's provenance combines military science and cognitive science.
SOT has sustained its independence for 38 years since its original founding in New York in 1979 by Michael Hewitt-Gleeson and Edward de Bono. During that time SOT has accepted no sponsorship, no shareholders, no accreditation, no censorship and no bias or direction from any government, non-government or corporate entity.
SOT has an independent advisory symposium and a portfolio of independent clients it has been recommended by eminent thought leaders and open to media scrutiny while disseminating over a half billion lessons globally since 1979. It is 100% online.
Dr Michael Hewitt-Gleeson, co-founder and Principal of the School of Thinking
