5 Reasons Why ADHD Coaching Doesn’t Work

Posted Feb 26 2012 10:31am

I came across a very good post on the blog at called 5 Reasons Why ADHD Coaching Doesn’t Work and thought I’d share it with you. As a person who stands behind ADD/ADHD coaching 100%, this is a great read, especially if you are considering trying out an coach. Here is a brief summary of the post:

1. You’re Not Ready for Coaching…Yet – Coaching won’t work if you rush into it. It’s probably not a good idea to get a coach right after you get your ADHD diagnosis.
2. You Don’t Actually Want a Coach – One of the most popular inquires we get here at the ADD Management Group goes something like this: “My husband needs a coach! Can Jennifer call him and convince him that he needs to work with her
3. You’re Not Willing to Do the Work – You might be surprised by the number of people who are willing to pay quite a few bucks to talk to a coach on a regular basis, but not willing to do any work in between sessions.
4. You Have the Wrong Coach – There are some great life coaches out there who are superstars in their respective fields. But a life coach, a weight loss coach, an executive coach, or any other coach who is not trained in ADHD and ADHD-specific coaching will more than likely be the wrong coach for you.
5.  Your Coach Sucks – Yeah, you read that right. One of the biggest reasons why ADHD coaching doesn’t work is that you have the unfortunate experience of working with a sucky coach. And there are plenty of them out there.
