Coaching for Adults with ADD/ADHD

ADD / ADHD Coaching is a minimum six-month commitment toward living life with more purpose, direction and balance. It is designed for adults who are motivated to change but are overwhelmed, stuck or immobilized by symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder/Attention Deficit Disorder. (Formal diagnosis is not necessary to benefit from the program). The ADHD/ADD Coaching process helps individuals identify goals and move deliberately toward them. Clients who commit to the framework and steps outlined below are typically more organized, have better follow-through and are able to plan more purposefully for themselves as a result of the program.

The Process

Phase 1:  Clearing
The objective of this phase is to clear the immediate tasks off your to-do list and establish a routine for success. In essence, you will work with your coach to clear your mind in preparation for Phase 2. (Average length of phase: 1-3 months).
Steps of Phase 1:

  • You will begin by identifying your Top Five needs and values using an assessment tool that your coach will provide. These needs and values will be respected and upheld throughout the coaching process.
  • You will implement a triage system provided by your coach for prioritizing tasks.
  • You will create work lists including scheduled completion times, and you will report your progress at those times to your coach.
  • You will complete weekly journal assignments provided by your coach and will email them to your coach at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled session.

 

Phase 2:  Defining
The objective of this phase is to intentionally focus on one project and define the tasks involved with completing that project. (Average length of phase: 1-3 months).
Steps of Phase 2:

  • You will identify the specific project or life area for focus.
  • You will work with your coach to create a vision and mission statement for the selected project.
  • You will complete weekly journal assignments provided by your coach and will email them to your coach at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled session.

 

Phase 3:  Moving Forward
The objective of this phase is to implement the plans you created in Phase 2. (Average length of phase: 1-3+ months).
Steps of Phase 3:

  • You will prioritize tasks, implementing the triage system you learned in Phase 1, as it relates to your project.
  • You will create work lists including scheduled completion times, and you will report your progress at those times to your coach.
  • You will identify successes and victories related to your project.
  • You will complete weekly journal assignments provided by your coach and will email them to your coach at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled session.
