Do you get quizzical looks when you tell people that you are an ADHD coach? Are they confused about the ADHD part, the coaching part or both? Here is a business building tip for you. When you are asked what you do for a living, answer with a brief tidbit about what ADHD coaches DO rather than providing a title. In our JST ADHD Coach Training programs, we have each participant write a short elevator speech to grab the interest of the listener, who inevitably will want to learn more about this service called ADHD Coaching!
Here are a few examples:
- I help people overcome obstacles and reach their goals.
- I partner with young people (or adults) with ADHD, offering support and strategies for success.
- I work with clients with ADHD to help them stay focused, organized and on track in their lives.
- As an ADHD coach, I help people follow their dreams.
The choice is yours. What words come from your heart and speak to the good work you do in ADHD coaching?
When I am approached with the question, I often say: “Thanks for asking! I have the opportunity to help young people become confident, happy and successful adults.”
