Learn more about ADHD Coach Training

Our mission is to help you use your own natural talents and personal resources to become a successful ADHD coach. The ADHD Coach Training program will allow you to feel confident in coaching those with ADHD, or as I prefer to call them “Innovators.” We want to get you out and into the world expertly serving this population as soon as possible.

Our ADHD Coach Training is very unique. From the beginning, you will be working with pro bono clients outside of class so you can practice what you learn as you go through the program. Carol works one-on-one with you to help you succeed at both being a top level coach and building a successful coaching practice.

In order to do this, classes are purposefully kept small. During the program, you will build your own coaching manual covering everything you learn both in and outside of class.

You’ll hone your skills in class as well as with classmates outside of class (coaching buddies), and with practice clients. By the end of the program, most of our students have experienced a great deal of coaching practice and skill-building.
