Q: I am looking for a career coach who can help me find a job I will be good at. I am dyslexic and had ADHD. It’s hard finding a job that I would excel in.
Liz’s Answer: Finding work we love is tough, but it’s also particularly important when you are living with ADHD.
When it comes to work, our brains are either saying, H-ll YES”, or, “Ugh NO.”
If you are able, I highly recommend working with an ADHD coach who specializes in a strengths-based approach.
A good coach can help you determine what really lights you up and gets you excited. Also, a good coach will help you to increase your emotional intelligence – making it easier for you to express yourself and ask for what you need at home and at work.
If coaching is out of reach at this time, try the VIA Character Assessment to get you started on thinking about your inherent strengths.
Whatever path you take, remember not to compare yourself with others. As Michael Phelps says, “stay in your lane.”
We all have gifts, we just need a little support to uncover them.
