ADHD Leaders and Entrepreneurs

Seeking ADHD Leaders for coaching research


I coach executives and global team leaders to step up performance, achieve business success and lead more fulfilling lives. I’m UK based but work over Skype and/or similar platforms.

Due to my own experience of ADHD (mainly in my sons but also in myself) I want to make a difference with ADHDers and to help us all see differences as ‘diffabilities’ from which to draw strength, not disabilities.

If you run a senior and/or global team I’d like to talk to you to get more of a feel for need. I may even offer some pro-bono support.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

All the best

Hello Clare,

Your efforts, experience, and business focused on helping/coaching adult business leaders is NEEDED.

I am 53 years old, diagnosed at 51. I have ADHD, LD, and PTSD. I have been a Licensed Registered Cosmetologist for 35 years this June. I have owned my own business since the age of 24, and prior to that I had been in the position of Salon Manager for a nationwide hair salon corporation at the age of 18.

With all this said, I have life experiences which indicate that AD/HD IS a “DIS"ABILITY. I can appreciate and understand the encouragement you express with the “diff"ability” and recognize how this can help the self-esteem of a child, however, AD/HD is much more then a difference and in my opinion needs to be expressed accordingly.

It is my intention to HELP you in your efforts to help others as I too, every day, promote awareness in my salon.

I would be happy to help you in anyway. I find it necessary to focus on educating myself as the majority of adults with AD/HD do not want to talk about it. I believe this to be an injustice to all.

Thank You Clare for all you do…

Hello Bonita

Thank you for your reply - I appreciate it. Apologies if I gave the impression that I had underestimated the negative impact of ADHD. I do recognise the differences as disabilities and see first hand what this means on a daily basis. However I also believe that it is easy to forget the value that a different way of thinking can add.

Reference helping me with my research I will contact you over the next few weeks with the details. It will be good to know with more clarity how ADHD is impacting one’s ability to lead others.

All the best
