As it says on our home page:

The ACO is the worldwide professional membership organization for ADHD Coaches. We are committed to being the outstanding resource for our profession. Whether you’re a coach, looking for help, or just plain curious about ADHD coaching, we can help you.

As president, I am privileged to help guide the ADHD Coaches Organization so that we live up to being this resource. And part of being this resource is communicating effectively.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned in being president of the ACO, it is that leadership requires excellent communication skills at all times. I recently had an experience where poor communication led to a lot of unnecessary misunderstandings and resultant problems, which just emphasized for me how important good communication is.

As coaches, we’ve all seen how our client’s poor communication skills cause problems: problems with family, problems with friends, problems at work. It’s our job as coaches to communicate clearly, to ask clarifying questions to help client (and coach!) understand what’s going on, not just at the surface, but the underlying assumptions and beliefs that might be getting in the way of moving forward.

The ACO recently made significant changes in its membership structure and its criteria for being in the ACO’s directory of Professional ADHD Coaches. These changes will help us live up to being the outstanding global resource for ADHD coaches that we are—and continue to aspire—to be. However, I know these changes have caused some confusion. So I encourage each and every on of you to ask those clarifying questions that will help you understand what we have done and how it effects you (and, if you take the long view, the profession). I invite each one of you to call me at my direct number (440-933-8309) or email me at president@adhdcoaches.org. I promise I will pick up the phone or respond to your email and that I’ll be happy to answer all your questions.

Until next time…
