You can manage your ADHDby getting clear on your goals and turning intention into action.
- Are you having trouble moving ahead toward a goal in your life?
- Do you want a better balance between your work and personal lives?
- Are your decisions out of line with your core values and needs?
Through ADHD coaching, you develop a greater awareness of how your ADHD may be impacting your home and work life.
With the help of a coaching collaboration, you learn to define your goals, recognize areas of opportunity, call on your strengths, and harness your own skills to ensure your desired outcome becomes a reality.
As an ICF and PAAC certified coach, I have the skills to help my clients identify their goals, turn intentions into action, and raise their awareness of what they’re learning through this collaborative process.
Through a focus on their goals combined with structured follow-through, my clients are set up to achieve the success they are looking for.
How would you like to...
… create and maintain a better self-care routine?
Self-care is very important, and it means different things to different people. Getting enough sleep, exercise, and fueling our bodies with good nutrition is paramount to a healthy lifestyle.
Incorporating new routines into our schedules can be complicated and daunting, but once we connect to why a healthy lifestyle is important to us, creating and maintaining these routines becomes much less daunting.
Many of my clients have found success in creating a self-care routine, blocking time in their calendars, and enlisting an accountability partner for regular check-ins.
… stop being late for important events?
Being available and reliable to our family and friends is a promise most of my clients want to keep, but frequently they struggle with their relationship to time.
Understanding why we are late is key to breaking the cycle. Making the critical mental connections to important events and activities, identifying key transition points between those activities, and creating support structures to remind us of those transitions will go a long way to being more available and reliable.
My clients find success in utilizing a detailed calendar and creating transition cues (timers, electronic notifications, etc.) to ensure they get where they need to go on time.
… make commitments and actually follow through?
Not being dependable is a frequent concern for my clients, not just about being on time for commitments, but in not fulfilling commitments at all.
Reasons vary by client, but frequently I hear concerns about not knowing how to start a project, unclear scope or stakeholder expectations, being stuck in a perfectionist loop, and underestimating how long a task will take.
In these situations, I ask my clients to partner with the appropriate stakeholders and support team. Whether it’s a family or work project, being clear about expectations and knowledge limits goes a long way toward building trust and ensuring follow-through.
I can help
As a Professional Association of ADHD Coaches Professional Certified ADHD Coach, and an ICF-Associate Certified Coach, I understand that ADHD can make life a bit more complicated, requiring customized solutions to everyday challenges. We know where we want to go and what we want to accomplish, we just don't know how to get there. That's where my genuine curiousity and thoughtful coaching process generate awareness, understanding and learning within my clients.
Here's how it works
Coaching is like a three-legged stool: You, Me, and the Coaching Process itself.
You: Before coming to coaching, you more than likely identified a gap between where you are today and where you want to be. Because you are the expert in you, you will bring that deep-seated awareness, intuition, and resourcefulness to each of our coaching sessions and, in partnership with your coach, you will identify the actions to be taken between appointments.
Me: Through deep curiosity, defining questions, and the ability to guide you to your own realizations, I become a full partner in the journey with you. I will help you come to new awareness, assist you in developing your strategy for advancement, and help you be accountable to the commitments you make to yourself.
Coaching Process: Connecting via phone or video, we will meet on a regular, mutually agreed-upon schedule. During these sessions, we will work through a defined agenda that includes (but is not limited to):
- Identification of your topic.
- Determining what outcome you want from our time together.
- Identify why this topic is important to you at this point in time and if there are any limiting beliefs that need to be addressed.
- At the end of our appointment, you may identify actions that you want to take before our next meeting.
The coaching process doesn't stop with our meetings, but extends into an Awareness-Action-Learning Loop that will be part of our sessions and the fieldwork you will do between sessions.
Awareness: What do you know about you? What do you know about the situation? Is there another perspective we can look at?
Action: Based on your new awareness, what action are you open to exploring to change the situation?
Learning: What did you learn from either achieving, or not achieving, your goal? Learning will manifest itself as new awareness, strengthening the Awareness–Action–Learning loop.
Are you ready to make a lasting, positive change?
Frequently Asked Questions
Do you meet in person, on the phone, or via video?
Each client interaction is different. I meet the majority of my clients via Zoom twice per month; however, some clients prefer to have our appointments over the phone. Either way is equally effective.
How long will it take?
I ask all new clients to commit to a three-month program where we meet at least every other week. Once we have completed our second coaching appointment, the coaching frequency can be adjusted based on client needs. I meet with some clients on a weekly basis, some every couple of weeks, and some I meet with once a month. Frequently clients come back for "tune-up" appointments on an as-needed basis as their life situations change. Whatever the coaching cadence, the length of the partnership is client-driven.
Why do you ask for a three-month commitment?
Many of my clients are looking for support in changing behaviors that have been around for years. Unfortunately, there are few quick fixes when it comes to significant shifts in perspective, structure, or behavior, so committing to a process for at least three months has proven to be the most effective way to get long-lasting results.
How many times will we need to meet?
This, too, depends on the client. Some clients feel their goals are met after the three-month commitment. Some clients feel their goals are met after the three-month commitment. On the other hand, some clients prefer a slightly longer relationship supporting their newfound structure and processes.
Will you tell me what to do?
I use a therapist/counselor now. Does coaching replace that?
I suspect I may have ADHD or have some ADHD characteristics. Can you help?
Yes. Although I work with clients who aren’t formally diagnosed with ADHD, my expertise is in helping clients struggling with the executive functioning issues largely associated with ADHD. If you think you may be challenged with ADHD, I would encourage you to seek assistance from a licensed mental health professional.
You can also fill out the ADHD self evaluation to learn whether you might benefit from the expertise of a trained coach and productivity professional.
How much does coaching cost?
The session cost is $165 per 50-minute coaching session. But the coaching value extends far beyond the 50-minute session time. Ongoing clients will also receive reasonable text and e-mail support between appointments.
I am much less hard on myself, and better understand how to improve organization while also valuing self-care.
I highly recommend Cindy Jobs. I was doing fairly well at my job but kept burning out frequently. Cindy Jobs gave me tools and advice for time and task management. She also made me aware of other areas of stress, like clutter and boundary issues within myself and family. I'm facing life with more of a relaxed can-do attitude now.
I wanted to thank you for all your help and guidance this year! I've gotten closer to my goals than I ever could've imagined, and none of this would have been possible without you. I can't tell you how grateful I am!
- I wasn't sure specifically what I needed help with. I was just generally lost. We talked through my issues, got to the bottom of them and started moving forward in manageable chunks. You absolutely must have your own motivation. But Cindy is incredibly helpful if you're motivated but lost or overwhelmed.
- Through the years, Cindy has been my coach, accountability partner, and cheerleader. Being a solopreneur can sometimes leave me feeling scattered and overwhelmed. Cindy has helped me establish tools to offset that.
- If you have any challenges with ADHD (ADD) Cindy is your "go-to" person. She combines the empathy and skill of a great coach with her incredible knowledge of the brain and the ADHD brain. This combination offers a safe, shame-free and extremely productive environment for healing and moving beyond the old stories that can immobilize you! Cindy’s the real deal!
