Coaching clients who have unique brain wiring - including those with ADHD, on the Autism Spectrum, or with Learning Disabilities – are a significant size of the population and deserve unique approaches to coaching. Sadly, they are sometimes dismissed as “not coachable”. To complicate matters, our clients may not even know that they are neuro-divergent.  (It’s estimated that up to 85% of adults with ADHD don’t have a diagnosis.)

Join Sue Williams Brawn, Calgary’s first professional ADHD coach, to learn:  

  • What ADHD is – and is not. What are the indicators that a client (or employee) is neuro-divergent? What are the key strengths? 
  • What do ADHD coaches do that differs from coaching someone neuro-typical?
  • What can you do if your client tells you (or you suspect) they are neuro-divergent.  What conversations are possible? What are your ethical responsibilities? 

Bring your questions! Sue will stay online for an extra hour to speak with anyone who would like more information.

Sue Williams Brawn is a Calgary based coach and academic strategist specializing in ADHD and Executive Functioning challenges.  In addition to founding her own practice, Fresh Start Coaching, she was CanLearn Society’s first ADHD coach and helped introduce coaching to CanLearn clients. She completed her coach training through the Newfield program in 2010 and graduated in 2016 from the ADD Coach Academy (ADDCA) to become the first professional, credentialed ADHD coach in the Prairie Provinces.  She has a BA in Humanities from U of C. 

In 2015 she created ADHD Community, a meet-up support and discussion group. She presents workshops about ADHD to groups and was a presenter at the 2017 CADDAC (Centre for ADHD Awareness, Canada) conference. She also served on the board of the Calgary Chapter of the International Coach Federation (ICF).

Sue was assessed with ADHD in her mid-40’s,  and her two sons were  assessed with ADHD as teens, so ADHD is the natural state of affairs in her personal and professional life! While she acknowledges the inherent challenges, she appreciates the strengths that it brings to her personal and professional life too and reflects this positive approach in her work with clients.
