This Week’s Episode:

The man, the myth, the legend, David Giwerc joins me on this episode of the podcast.  David is the president of the ADD Coach Academy.  He is a global leader in coach training and education.  ADD Coach Academy is the only comprehensive ADHD coach training program accredited by ICF and PAAC.  His internationally recognized coaching practice is dedicated to empowering ADHD entrepreneurs and executives.  David was recently inducted into the International CHADD Hall of Fame, and he received the coveted ADHD Coaches Organization Founders Award.

In this conversation, you will hear David share some of his expertise in coaching.  He starts by explaining what coaching brings us as people with ADHD.  He also describes what the purpose of ADHD coaching is, and maybe more importantly, what coaching is NOT.  You’re also going to hear David describe one of his models, the “I Model.”
