We tend to live in a society where we become adults, leave home, are thrown into “the real world” and are expected to deal with life on our own. Your mother is not your coach anymore, and your spouse, although your partner and life mate, is not your coach either. You can’t always tax your friends with your issues and they in turn are not qualified to help you move forward.
The answer is to work with a coach; a teammate, a goal enabler, a support center, a skill builder, an encourager.
Some of the benefits of coaching include:
Finding and building your life on your strengths
Working toward your goals
Getting support on decision making and prioritizing
Living in the positive traits of your ADHD and managing the negative ones.
Building self-esteem, confidence and self-image
Dealing with anger and anxiety
Reducing blame, guilt and shame
Improving communication skills
Getting over procrastination
Developing good time-management and organization management skills
Improve self- management, distractibility and planning skills
