Kat is one of the most astute, effective consultants I’ve met in some time. She is extremely gifted at bringing out the best in individuals and her own unique path has bred a philosophy that is innovative, exciting and maybe even groundbreaking. I cannot recommend her highly enough. I want to express my full support and endorsement of Katrina Salazar’s weThink Adaptive Engine and Assessments.
Richard Wyckoff CEO, Reverge Studios
Working with Kat on software projects in the educational space has proven to be one of the highlights of my career. Kat continues to impress me with her ability to quickly absorb and master new information and skills quickly, and her organizational and problem-solving abilities are superb. Those talents and her powerful insight and experience have led to real breakthroughs in everything I’ve seen her do. Take any opportunity to work with her.
Zelagh Kaplan Founder of Shen Ai Hardware
I have had the distinct pleasure to work with Kat Salazar for a couple years now. Her unparalleled depth of wisdom and practical techniques left me inspired by her rich, translatable tools for cultivating new practices, patterns, and educing a dormant passion and curiosity for growth, which we had not seen in a rather long time. Quite frankly, her expertise in communication and innate ability to create a solution for any issue rendered me mute. I would highly recommend We Think Inc to any company or individual.
“Most students fall behind because they don’t know how to learn and are not provided the resources to develop the skills to be good learners.”
5 years ago we had a vision that we could change this, that our working hypothesis was right. So we tested it out. We combined these learning skills with academic programs and showed incredibly positive results. Not only were we able to show an increase in academic success, but we also showed a positive increase in behavior, mood, and confidence.
Further research validated these practical tests and proved we could go a step further. We can accurately measure and reliably teach these skills to students the world over.
By building research backed interactive content for students we can both test and train them to use these skills along side their academics.
We can bring these skills into the classroom by providing educators personalized resources for their students and classrooms that they can use simply from a mobile phone, tablet, or computer.
Teaching these skills produced measurable results for students in inner-city Los Angeles (Hawthorne school district) – increased SAT scores by 300-600 points in 6 weeks.
Teaching these skills produced measurable results for institutions – statewide standard test ranking increased by 20.5% in a year.
Teaching these skills produced satisfaction and positive feedback – 98% satisfaction rate with students and endorsed by the district of Lennox, based in Los Angeles country.
