ADHD Primer For Leadership

We live in an ADHD influenced society too often defined by neurotypical expectations. Understanding how ADHD symptoms manifest in the working world is advantageous for everyone.

We've combined ADHD research with our expertise in coaching, startups, and relationships to develop a course that dispels myths, raises awareness, foster's acceptance and understanding. Our goal for this course is to help you bring ADHD awareness to your leadership: self-leadership and your teams.

Who is this course for?

The curious/interested leader who wants to be more ADHD aware.

The leader who suspects they may have ADHD.

The leader who knows they have ADHD.

This course is beneficial even if you don't have ADHD or an official diagnosis. It's not necessary to suspect that you have ADHD, as statistically it’s likely you have worked with more than one ADHD person already.

What will I get out of this course?

We distill the abundance of ADHD information to fundamental concepts that you can recognize and use in your day to day. Our approach includes:

  1. ADHD diagnosis and prevalence: Cover the diagnostic criteria, prevalence rates, and the common misconceptions about ADHD to help leaders better identify and understand the condition.

  2. Understanding the foundation: We will explain the role of emotional regulation, inhibition, and executive functions as they relate to our self-control. We will look at these important skills through the lens of brain development.

  3. Building on strengths: Emphasize the unique strengths and talents that individuals with ADHD can bring to the workplace, such as creativity, resilience, and adaptability.

  4. Confronting challenges: We will explore the neurodevelopmental aspects of ADHD to help us pinpoint challenges in our behavior and within our teams through written and group inquiry.

  5. Applying Strategies: We will touch on the common strategies that help professionals overcome relationship and performance barriers associated with ADHD.

  6. ADHD in Leadership: We will discuss how ADHD shows up in the 6 common challenges of leadership.

What is the course format?

The course is a mix of learning and discussion. If the thought of open discussion makes you nervous or apprehensive, we get it. Just know everyone else will be feeling the same way. Part of what we’re bringing to this course is setting up a safe and confidential container where everyone can share and learn from each other. This is also where you’ll get the most benefit from this course. Fear is sometimes an indicator of the thing you should be moving towards, and you may surprise yourself in the process.
