Professor with ADHD?

Okay, let's start there. 

Professors with ADHD can be brilliant in lectures and interested in students, but struggle to implement systems to get the more mundane, but necessary, tasks done – like uploading syllabi to the university server on time, clearing out that email inbox, and keeping grade logs up-to-date.

 

If you are a professor with ADHD, you might imagine the day when you can devote time reading and writing about your next research interest, collaborating with colleagues in your academic field, and getting glowing reviews from student evaluations. But, you might spend too much time on interruptions, less meaningful tasks, or distractions to get there.

 

I have worked with professors at all stages of their academic careers – from tenured department chairs, all-but-dissertation visiting professors, and first-time adjuncts – in universities, liberal arts colleges, and community colleges.

Typical coaching topics for professors with ADHD

 

  • Understanding and managing your ADHD.

  • Identifying what is really getting in your way at work.

  • Developing target performance goals.

  • Relying on your strengths.

  • Getting organized.

  • Creating an accountability network.

  • Limiting and controlling distractions.

  • Managing your to-do list and time, and meeting deadlines.

  • Balancing teaching requirements and research goals.

  • Balancing work and the rest of life.

 

We can work together to set clear, measurable goals to solve these issues, develop steps you can take and strategies to rely on, and support you as you gain control.
