Facilitating our ADHD Primer For Leadership
What we’ve learned so far…
“Rarely, if ever, are any of us healed in isolation. Healing is an act of communion” – bell hooks
Here are a few things we’ve learned from facilitating our course: The ADHD Primer For Leadership
- The importance of safety – people were able to take their preverbal masks off and be themselves. So many with ADHD have to put on their masks to work within a neurotypical world. It’s amazing thing to watch those masks get set aside.
- The value of being understood – To be in a space where people “get” you is foreign for many ADHD leaders and an experience everyone should have. We heard “I feel seen” a lot. Knowing you’re not alone opens the door to empathy, understanding, and shared resilience, transforming isolation into a shared journey of strength and growth.
- The power of connection – When people “get” you, you’re able to connect on a unique and powerful level. This was such a moving piece of the experience we’re now providing a space where leaders who took our course can meet and keep the connection and discussion going.
- Breaks at the right time are necessary for holding focus – Our breaks were timed perfectly and no one wanted to leave when time was up! We’ve since extended the class time a little so we can get through all the material and not feel rushed. It is a long block of time but attendees felt like it went by fast.
