Adults who have ADHD usually know a lot about the negative consequences of the condition. Many underestimate their strengths while others perform brilliantly at work but are frustrated when they stumble over daily activities.
Life coaches help clients challenge their perceptions, beliefs, and assumptions. Coaching conversations require courage and the resilience to create new mindsets. Coaches ask lots of questions to shake up the status quo:
- What’s the first step you’re willing to take?
- What resources do you have to support your efforts?
- Where can you find more information for a bigger picture?
- What’s possible now?
Coaches encourage experimentation so clients can identify the skills that they need to learn or the strategies that work best for them.
