Help us reach millions more. Most education reforms focus on one-size-fits-all makeovers. But Dynamynd is different. Using the Kathy Kolbe Method, we focus on challenging students to self-manage diverse ways of learning. We empower students with the freedom to learn in the ways that are most natural to them, encouraging them to do what they do best and celebrating them for their unique abilities. When situations don’t cater to their capabilities, learners receive Conables® – tips and tricks to help them persist.
The Kathy Kolbe Method fosters purposeful learning in which students manage verified instinct-based strengths to achieve meaningful goals. It improves students’ mental wellness by reducing stress. The concept of learning is clarified as an action-oriented, affectively-motivated process that is more than just finding a standardized answer.
At Dynamynd, our mission is to transform learning across the globe. With the help of community sponsors, teachers, parents, coaches, principals, youth leaders and volunteers, we will revolutionize opportunities for learners of all ages together.

"Kolbe helps youth 'story their lives into existence' by giving them an accurate language to describe what is most fundamental to them. It validates who they are and fosters a sense of dignity, worthiness, and love."

“I’m so happy I can tell my mom there is something about me that is perfect. Maybe I’ll wrap my Kolbe result up and put it under the tree for her. I know it will make her cry – the good way.”
“This system needs to be an integral basis for all aspects of education. I will not continue teaching if I cannot use the Kolbe Method in my job.”
David BuckEd. D. Superintendent, Wright City R-II School District
“When I arrived, we were in the bottom 4% of schools in terms of academic performance in the state. Every administrator, board member, central office employee, and teacher took a Kolbe A™ and went through training around it. We became the most improved district in the state and in the top 1/3 in terms of performance. Kolbe was a huge part of that turnaround.”

“A parent turned to me and said, ‘This puts it all into perspective. I’m trying to make him be me instead of letting him be him.’”

“The way society and schools are constructed causes an inordinate amount of labeling of kids, and increasing insistence they medicated in their formative years just because they respond to a different learning atmosphere and approach. I hope that Kathy’s vision becomes a reality and that schools and workplaces can be reshaped to fully accommodate and appreciate us ‘troublemakers.’”
Elizabeth BerryPh. D. Professor
“I can see it in my teaching. I’m much more tolerant now. I understand. I try to diversify assignments for all the different kinds of people.”
