The Story Of Dynamizer

Once Upon A Time…

A few years ago, three strengths experts (Marvin, Michelle, and Josh = MM&J) noticed something interesting: despite all the work each of them were doing to make workplaces more energizing, understanding about individual strengths never seemed to start early enough.

By the time people arrived in the workplace, they'd already been taught a bunch of bad habits, and, through no fault of their own, had often been led to believe a variety of profoundly unhelpful myths (like the one that says focusing on your weaknesses makes exceptional results—spoiler alert: it doesn't).

MM&J knew something had to be done.

So, they started telling other strengths-product-creators that they should create something for kids, to start the strengths conversation much earlier. Everyone loved the idea, but no one had the bandwidth to do it.

Finally, it occurred to MM&J that maybe they'd been looking in the wrong spot... maybe they were the ones meant to "create something for kids."

And so they did.

Just A Few Stories

Some lovely people who have experienced the power of Dynamizer...

“Our campers get so much from using Dynamizer! Living with serious illnesses and disabilities often causes these children to feel defined by their weaknesses. However, Dynamizer allows them to identify their individual strengths and talents. As they step away from being labeled by their illness, these wonderful children have the opportunity to overcome obstacles and grow in their capabilities. The focus of Dynamizer on individual strengths builds confidence and changes the way children perceive themselves for years to come.”

“I have witnessed first-hand how Dynamizer provides an opportunity for young people to understand their own unique strengths and the strengths of others, helping them accept and respect differences as being positive and wonderful.”

“As an executive coach and consultant, I find great value in identifying, understanding and leveraging one’s strengths. Dynamizer accomplishes this with young people in such a way that they can gain strategies early to live and thrive with a continuing picture of the best version of themselves. This has profound immediate and long-term implications for greater productivity, stronger relationships and effective direction. I strongly recommend Dynamizer for each and every child in your life.”
