The Colors of Your Parachute with ADHD | Career Discovery Workshop

Are You Looking for a Job or Stuck in a Dead-End Job?

Join us for a Creative and Empowering Career Discovery Process

Wednesday Afternoons, 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm CDT, August 19th -  September 23rd, 2020

"How can I find the right career for me with ADHD?"
"I have tried and failed many times and am so discouraged!"
"I am stuck in a dead-end job and need to do something else, but what?"
"I have lots of ideas but struggle to pick which one?"

Sound familiar? If so, you are not alone.  You will finally identify your preferences and what skills and contributions you bring to the world of work.  It's time to discover your very best fit - one that takes your ADHD into consideration. From there you are better served to evaluate your options and pursue the best possible career direction. 

Perfect for those now looking for work
as well as those stuck in a dead-end job! 

The six-week virtual group workshop is loosely based on Richard Bolles’ What Color Is Your Parachute, with whom Shell studied.  It allows you to think creatively and expansively about what is the most promising of all directions leading you to happiness in your career. Through this process, Shell has developed a system that incorporates a number of strategies and unconditional support. This workshop is designed to take you through the foundational roadmap required (your Flower). We will use the What Color Is Your Parachute Workbook in this workshop.

Frequently Asked Questions:  

Will this group help select the best career for me? Although you will be led to do the inner work through a system, career coaching is not about providing you with the answers to questions like, “Is this the best career for me.” Through our work, your goal is to discover the answers that are already within you. Through your own work, you will begin to see patterns that will lead you in the right direction and you will always be supported and encouraged to seek more information on those areas that reflect your prioritized areas of interest or your passions. I will always encourage you to listen to what this information is telling you, but again, I will not tell you if I think it is the “best” route to take as that would be a disservice to you and could prevent you from following your own path.

Will there be assignments? There will be weekly assignments that will require 1-3 hours per week outside of our sessions unless otherwise assigned. Of course, you will want to put the most time into this work as possible to derive the most benefit. Part of the gift of career coaching is to help you stay accountable to your own process. The good news is that it is FUN because it is all about you, and you will see progress and results along the way if you stay

What about career coaching? Career coaching following this program is an option.  I am happy to explore this with you after the program. 

Are you an ADHD Coach?  No. I am a career coach and counseling professional who was diagnosed with ADHD in 2010. My expertise is in guiding you through the process designed to help you develop clarity and excitement regarding your next career direction.  If you are diagnosed or suspect that you have ADHD, it is virtually impossible to work over the long haul in a job that you are not happy with.  I have an intimate understanding of how ADD/ADHD works in our lives and can help you navigate your career goals with this understanding. I might recommend to some of you that you seek assistance from a certified ADHD Coach or from a mental health professional who specializes in ADD/ADHD in addition to our work together and can provide a few solid resources to help you find the right person at the point where you are on your way toward your new direction.  ADHD Coaching can also help you maintain your new position from this new perspective.
