Over the years, as the word got around about the effectiveness of my coaching, demand for my coaching services became difficult to fill. Plus, not everyone can afford individual coaching. So I started looking for ways that I could help more people with ADHD effectively and at a low cost.
That’s where my online programs began. I started analysing what strategies and tools were the most in need from my own experience with personal clients and realized that certain issues were pretty universal among adults with ADHD – especially around productivity at work. Of course, strategies to improve your productivity at work, can also be used at home. I began to develop programs to address these issues.
The materials sit in a members’ portal and when you enroll, you get your own login and password. You’ll also receive weekly emails with your mission for the week. These emails provide you with valuable information such as your weekly mission, some additional information about the last week’s mission, access information and more.
These weekly emails serve not only to guide you but also as reminders to return to the portal for your next lesson.
Lessons are constructed based on some of the best training strategies for ADHDers. Each week you learn one small strategy that has a significant impact. It may have some awareness-building exercise to complete that take into account your own personal uniqueness, or specific step-by-step instructions on how to implement what you just learned into your personal and work life.
Most material is offered in several options. You can choose to read, listen to audio recordings or watch videos. You can download and print the pdf or word documents or download the audio files to your listening devices. Videos can only be streamed but don’t worry, you’ll have access to all the materials for years to come. Plus, I’m a lifelong learner and as such, I’m always improving my programs. When you purchase one of my online programs, you’ll have access to them and the updated version for decades to come. So you can take your time and return as often as you want.
Most modules require about 1 to 2 hours of study a week to digest the information. You may want to set aside 2 or 3 hours for that, though to make sure you have time to complete the missions. Awareness-building exercises and actual implementation steps are usually integrated into your life. Some exercises can require a few hours such as the first time you begin the planning process in Achieve.
I want to know more about the Achieve! program
Benjamin Franklin said “if you fail to plan, you are planning to fail”. One of my first clients came to me with a massive to-do list. She was a struggling business woman sitting on a gold mine, if only she’d get through her massive to-do list. She was reluctant to take on too much business because that to-do list made her feel guilty and incompetent to take on more.
I asked her, what she did when a client cancelled an appointment and she had an unexpected hour or two to tackle a task on her to-do list? How did she choose what to do? She answered that this was one major flaw in her to-do list system. The list was so long, it took her almost as much time as she had just to read through the list and choose the right task.
We realized that she needed a system to help her prioritize, estimate how long tasks would take to accomplish and a way to guide her through her day so that she’s spending her time on the right tasks, the ones that would have the biggest impact on what she valued most. She’s not alone. Many of my entrepreneur, professional and employees with ADHD struggle with the very same issue.
That’s what I teach you in Achieve! In this 8-week online program you start by learning a simplified plan for scheduling and doing essential tasks. I’ll teach you the ADD-friendly approach to prioritizing, and to planning your projects and manage your time. I’ll teach you how to assemble a 100% time-management solution so that you never miss or come unprepared for another meeting, you start each day on the right track and you finish feeling satisfied that you’ve achieved all you set out to do.
This program requires that you watch a few demo videos on how to plan using different tools – paper-based system, and electronic systems.
I don’t teach you software. I am not software specialist and it would be impossible for me to stay up to date with all the technology. What I teach is a process that you incorporate into whatever software you’re currently using, whether it’s Google Calendar, Outlook, Lotus Notes, etc. I do teach you to plan but you learn one step at a time each week. I believe it’s important to learn one small step at a time.
Also you’ll not only want to plan your work, but also work your plan, which means, putting your plan into action. If you’ve never been good at that, you’ll be instructed on how to improve your chances of getting it done. Many ADHDers are resistant to planning and we do address that.
At the end of the program, you’ll be able to:
- Use an ADD-friendly approach to prioritizing
- Use a calendar to keep track of everything you want to get done.
- Complete a weekly plan one
