Introducing the Catalyst for Change Experience™

Over the years, many of you have commented to me that you’d love to take part in a group coaching experience, where you can connect with other adults diagnosed with ADHD or who wonder if they might have ADHD.  Those comments have not gone unnoticed and thanks to a number of you willing to connect with me about what you’d like out of an experience like this, I’m excited to announce that the first of these group coaching experiences will be available soon!

I’m even more excited to introduce this experience to you with my fellow coach and co-leader in the Catalyst for Change Experience, Lisa Crilley-Mallis:

Lisa, to get this party started, can you tell me a bit about yourself?  

Andrea, let me start by saying I’m thrilled and honored to be co-leading with you.  The Catalyst for Change Experience is certainly one of a kind!

A little about me, I’m a time strategy visionary – which means I work with clients to create a vision of their ideal life, then live this vision using time management, goal setting and accountability strategies.  I combined my experience in secondary education and coaching and my love of schedules, systems, and all things time management to create SystemSavvy Consulting.

I love helping clients cut to the heart of overwhelm to help regain control of their schedules to experience life. I’m energized by assisting overextended direct sellers, home based business owners, entrepreneurs, and busy adults implement concrete techniques that can be applied to their daily lives.   I’ve been told my “enthusiasm for finding solutions is contagious, and my commitment to empowering my clients in finding success is transformational.”

I pride myself on finding the specific techniques that work for each individual client. (One size does NOT fit all!)  

Fantastic, now that my readers know a little more about you, can you give them a feel for who Catalyst for Change is geared towards?

Catalyst for Change is for you if you’re an adult who has ADHD or wonder if you do.  Our participants see value in creating change and are open to getting curious about themselves.  You’ll appreciate this course if you’re frustrated and tired of being overwhelmed, unfocused, and disorganized and if you are excited to learn a better way to move forward.

So exactly what might folks expect to get from participating in Catalyst for Change?

Catalyst for Change will kick off in March 2014 with Meetups every other week.  This fall we will roll out our five-week group coaching experiences where you’ll focus on building awarenesses about yourself:  your challenges, your strengths and your dreams.  Each of these sessions will provide you with tools, tips and techniques to help you begin to create a life that fits.  Just as importantly, by participating with and learning alongside other ADHD adults you’ll begin to build an additional support network.  Most importantly we think you’ll have fun learning about yourself and supporting each other in our unique learning environment.

Our Meetups and our group coaching experiences are designed to help you develop an understanding of how ADHD coaching can support you in your journey.

People are busy, what kind of time commitment is expected?

The Meetup sessions which will be held every other week, will last about 60 minutes.  

Each group coaching session will run 90 minutes.   In addition to this 90 minute weekly session, participants are asked to complete a couple of online assessments and some short reading assignments that might take you an additional 45-60 minutes to get through.

Lisa, where and when do you meet? 

Both the Meetup sessions and the group coaching experiences will be held on Thursday evenings in a public meeting room in Brooklyn, Ohio convenient to I-480, I-77 and I-71.  Our Catalyst for Change Meetups will begin on March 6th.   

Sounds great!  What should my readers do if they’re interested in participating or if they know someone else who might be interested in participating?

Thanks Lisa!  I’m looking forward to coaching with you and supporting our participants in creating lives that fit.
