Kidpower’s founder and executive director, Irene van der Zande, and other Kidpower leaders, facilitate a 1-hour conference call, where they field individual questions about how to take charge of safety — building confidence, and using intuition to make safe choices — and how to teach others to use these skills for their own greater independence and safety.

This service is modeled from the countless times that Irene has offered organizations and people, who care deeply about children and keeping them safe, an opportunity to learn how to turn their specific concerns and problems into practices that build skills for safety.
The name, “Turning Problems into Practices” Coaching Conference Call, is inspired by the many requests Kidpower has received from parents, teachers, and organizations for coaching over phone and video-conference.
Over the years, many parents and professionals have asked for conferences with Irene and other Kidpower leaders to address specific questions or problems. The requests are so numerous, though, that it would be impossible to field so many individual calls.
That’s why Kidpower International offers “Turning Problems into Practices” coaching conference calls, where interested individuals (or organizations) can participate and ask their own questions to get help to solve a “people safety” problem.
“People who have trained with Irene have experienced first hand how her ability to ask the right questions and work through problems in the moment to show how to use Kidpower skills and strategies to practice safety skills can just “flick the switch” on something that had seemed too challenging to handle,” says Dr. Amy Tiemann, author of Mojo Mom and Center Co-Director for Kidpower North Carolina.
“Irene’s warmth and insight are truly exceptional and something I personally treasure having had access to on the conference call,” wrote a mom after a recent call.
