Greetings from ACO Programs

 

Give Thanks_LeavesWe hope this newsletter finds you well and with much to be thankful for.  In running a business, there is so much to think about.  One important area of consideration is our own professional development which allows us to bring our best to the ADHD Coaching profession and to developing a rewarding business.  What are your goals in professional development?  If it might be finishing off your certification process, collaborating with other coaches on how to work with certain types of ADHD Coaching challenges or figuring out how to grow your business, there are some fun opportunities here for you.  We hope you join us!

New Certification Support Group:
Hey ACO members, are you looking to finish up your coaching certification and get those credentials behind your name?  Our new Support Group is a pilot program that begins November 11th, 2016.  We will start off with five sessions and then re-evaluate on whether to continue into the new year.   Our current meetings dates are November 11th, November 18th,  December 2nd, 9th, and 16th of this year.  We will record the first session for those of you who may not have heard about our program in time and need to join in.  Email Programs@ADHDCoaches.org if you wish to join the group.
