Skills you will learn via Dooley Coaching
to help manage your ADHD
The skills and techniques you'll learn via our coaching partnership are crucial for your progress, and you'll use them in combination to manage your ADHD
- Time Management- Using a to-do list in tandem with a planner/calendar, time estimation (see below), scheduling events and tasks, being on time for appointments, and other crucial skills
- Organization- Lessen clutter, know where things go, using methods
that work with the way you learn and process info
- Prioritizing- Learn strategies for identifying the most important tasks, and doing them first (sometimes the things we want to do the most are not the highest priority!)
- Time Estimation- Learn how long things take you to do- most of us with ADHD are not so great at this, and it's a key element in time management
- Task Management- Breaking down larger more complex tasks into to smaller, more manageable pieces or subtasks. When we see a large task with a number of steps, we often "freeze", and maybe everything looks like the same priority. That's your ADHD showing up.
- Getting what you want- Creating defining your vision and goals for your life in a way that's clear and achievable, and using the skills you learn through coaching to fulfill them
- Paying attention to your ADHD- When does it show up and stand in the way of your progress?
- Paying attention to your strengths- When am I at my best? How can I increase the time and the opportunities when I am working from my strengths?
- Identifying how to most effectively learn and process information- Auditory, Visual, Tactile, Verbal learning modalities are used in combination- learn which are your strongest,
and how to use them to build skills to their maximum benefit
