#56: How to leverage your ADHD and step into your power | David Giwerc
My guest David Giwerc, Master Certified ADHD Coach, Entrepreneur, Founder/President of the ADD Coach Academy, shared a very powerful statement during this episode, “when you identify your strengths, you're identifying a natural, innate talent and a way of creating excellence consistently in your life. But that's not enough because, without the sustaining mechanism, Or the source that activates that strength, those strengths will die. And this is especially true in ADHD because ADHD is a deficit of interest. It's, it's the challenge of boredom, but interest isn't even enough.”
You are in for a treat, consider this episode as a training session, during this episode, David shared extremely helpful insights on:
* Identifying the importance of focusing on strengths, especially character strengths
* Why we look at the different categories of strengths
* What does executive function in the brain have to do with strengths?
During the last 20 minutes of the episode he goes deeper into the following:
* An effective way to start your day to get the most out of it
* Understanding the importance of how you process information and how it impacts learning
* Definition of Executive Function and it works with ADHD
* How to manage big emotions
I was trained and coached by David himself for a big portion of my ADD Coach training program at ADDCA, so it was my absolute honor to have my mentor/coach be on my show. I am forever grateful for the impact that he has made in my life and the lives of many who have taken his courses and teachings at the ADD Coach Academy.
