“How a young girl managed friendship changes upon return to in-person school”

How she learned “Power Shifting” and self-confidence skills from a certified WISDOM Coach® 



In this episode, WISDOM Coach™, Delia Rusu, shares how she helped a 7-year-old girl manage a friendship change and make new friends, by developing the skills of “Power Shifting” and Self-confidence stretches.

…We are all – in WISDOM coaching – about empowerment regardless of the challenges. And friendship changes are a huge challenge that even adults try to wrap their heads around, but we need to empower our children to go through this. What I did working with this young girl was to help her look at the situation from an empowering perspective.”

Delia Rusu, Senior WISDOM Coach

The mindset skills Delia discusses in this video:

WISDOM Coaches use stories, discussion and activities to help kids learn, understand and practice essential mindset skills kids will use throughout their school years and for life.

  • Power Shifting – is taught the through the story, “Power Goggles”. Kids learn that they can put on their “Power Goggles” to look at something differently or find a new solution. 

  • Self-confidence – is taught the through the story, ““Canville and Cantville, a Tale of Two Towns”. Kids learn how to stretch outside their comfort zone  to build confidence to try something new.

“…so valuable because kids aren’t learning this [mindset skills] in school!”

“I don’t say this very often, but I highly recommend what you’re doing. It is so valuable, and it’s so complete. That’s what I love about it and, obviously, really effective.”
