I always advise clients about the process that’s involved with coaching for ADD, ADHD and Executive Functioning. It isn’t just a quick fix, but the beginning of a journey to better manage one’s needs. Some clients can resist at first, but sticking with coaching should improve performance if it’s a fit.
I cater my work to the individual client. To do this I need to acclimate myself to his or her needs. Creating a relationship and finding common interests are a key. If there’s no relationship, it makes it difficult to effectively work together. I’m asking a client to trust me, so creating a strong relationship is a key to this whole process.
I do not offer a cure in a can, promise better grades or make any guarantees, but if a client wants to improve performance, we can accomplish this together. But having a strong relationship is the key.
My advice to anyone seeking a coach is to be sure there’s a comfort level and that you can see working with the coach for the long-term. Any initial doubts are an obstacle that may not be overcome.
