Seeking the power of a community?

Okay, let's start there. 

The Focused Professor Coaching Group
An Online Group for Professors with ADHD

Do you sometimes feel like you are the only professor who is struggling with ADHD? Or, even if you know there are others, do you often wish you could just talk to them, see how they are managing, learn from each other, or simply just have a good laugh in recognition of shared struggles? Getting grades turned in, submitting papers or grant proposals on time, spending uninterrupted time writing and thinking, getting work done during your workday, planning for classes, or simply showing up for classes on time can all be more difficult when you have ADHD. Wouldn't it be helpful if professors with ADHD could share their experiences, worries, and difficulties, solutions, "wins," and act as accountability support with each other?

The Focused Professor Coaching Group is exactly that - a 3-month online coaching group that is a supportive space to help you live well as a professor with ADHD.

The Focused Professor Coaching Group offers support, guidance, accountability, and connection to help you develop the systems and processes you need to get work and work and life under control. Each 3-month session is held three times per year in the Spring (February-April), Summer (June-August), and Fall (October-December). 

In this group, you will expand your understanding of how having ADHD impacts your work, develop your skills and habits to optimize brain function, maximize talents, motivate yourself to succeed, and identify the specific action steps that work best for you. The Focused Professor Coaching Group will help you learn how to manage your time and energy more effectively and create systems that work for you and stick around.

Plus, in this group setting, you will get to share with and learn from other professors with ADHD, discuss your experiences with the group, and reap the benefits of having multiple minds in the virtual room.

The Focused Professor will open shortly. Please email us to join our waiting list to be notified when registration opens. 

The next session of The Focused Professor Coaching Group will meet from the first week of October through the third week of December. Coaching workshops will be held the first three weeks of each month and co-working meetings will take place daily Monday-Friday for the duration of the session.

This group is built on the 4-step performance model for ADHD. The Fall 2022 session of The Focused Professor is only a New Member cohort to teach our 4-step performance model for ADHD. We expect to hold an Alumni cohort for professors who have already completed the New Member cohort in Spring 2023. Professors who have already completed a New Member cohort are encouraged to join the Fall 2022 session of Performance Powerhouse.
