The ADHD Life Coaching Approach uses the International ADHD Coach Training Center (iACTcenter) proprietary T.O.M.S. © Method and C.O.R.E. © process.

Coaching sessions will generally follow the format below. With coaching it’s important to note the client sets the agenda for the session, not the coach. 

What is T.O.M.S? T.O.M.S stands for:

  • Topic  – What would you like to be coached on?
  • Outcome – For today’s session to be successful, what would you like to take away?
  • Measurement – How will you specifically know the session was successful and our time spent together valuable?
    • Outcome measurement should be SMART:
      • Specific-clearly identify what you want to work on
      • Measurable-how are you going to measure what you will work on?
      • Attainable-is this realistic and manageable?
      • Relevant-why is this important to you?
      • Time bound-define your time frame to achieve the goal.
  • Significance – Why is this important to you now?

What does C.O.R.E. stand for?

  • Collaborative Partnership
  • Option Brainstorming
  • Remove Obstacles
  • Energy Through Action

C.O.R.E. is a unique holistic coaching process. The awareness and attention is to the whole person, not just their ADHD. Focusing on supporting the client creates sustainable change through increased awareness and a sense of inspiration to take action. Change not only occurs on the surface of one’s life but also deep within a person. 

The C.O.R.E. process acknowledges the importance of the collaborative partnership between the coach and the client. This is a relationship like no other where the client is understood to be the expert in their own life. During option brainstorming, the coach will use powerful questioning to help the client discover new ideas and perspectives to reach their desired outcome.

Following the C.O.R.E. coaching process, we work with clients to identify and remove obstacles that prevent them from reaching their desired outcomes. For example, having a safe space to discuss obstacles can help clients consider alternate ways of handling the obstacle. Finally, the energy and momentum that is created through this process inspires clients to maintain long-lasting change.
