The word accountability can sometimes come off as a negative word or concept. But leveraged properly, accountability can be a powerful way to achieve more in life and in business. However, accountability techniques need to be implemented in the proper way to ensure success.

 

Many of us have heard about accountability groups or accountability partners/buddies and on this ADHD podcast, we talk with Eric Tivers who runs many accountability groups for those with ADHD.

 

Eric is a LCSW, an ADHD coach and hosts the very popular podcast ADHD rewired.

 

Eric and I have a great discussion about many facets of accountability.

 

Some of the topics we discuss are:

 

What is accountability?

Why does accountability work?

Is accountability a difficult concept for some? And what is the resistance?

For those in business, why is this important?

Are there different kinds of accountability?

How do you get a business professional comfortable with being accountable. To others and themselves?

If someone is new to coaching or having an accountability partner, what is the best way to get started, get used to having someone there?

Where do people fall down?

How to set goals when you have ADHD.

It’s that time of the year when many of us try to set goals for ourselves. Whether we are goalsetting for our business or for our personal lives, this seems to be the time of year when we try to usher in many improvements for ourselves.

If you are easily distracted, have ADHD or just have a difficult time setting realistic goals that you can meet, this is the podcast episode for you. In this episode, I talk with Abigail Wurf, an ADHD Coach based in Washington DC.

Abigail works with adults, those in business, executives and entrepreneurs to help them achieve more success and enjoyment in life. And she also holds a number of workshops and trainings for those with ADHD.

This podcast may have come out in December but the content is relevant all year long if you are serious about setting goals and making forward progress.

Some of the topics we discuss on this podcast include:

What are typical goals that people try to set in business as well as personal?

Do you find there are ADHD -specific goals? 

How should adults with ADHD start the process of setting goals for the New Year?

What frustrates people the most about this process? 

What is realistic when it comes to goalsetting?

We all want and need to love what we do for a career but when you have ADHD, it’s almost a requirement that you absolutely love what you do for work. Jobs or careers that don’t offer us the opportunity to dig into our passions usually end up being short-lived.

In this episode of Overcoming Distractions the Podcast, I talk with Shell Mendelson, a career coach that specializes in working with adults who have ADHD and need or want to find or change their career. She talks about why it’s important to find a career that you can fall in love with, what makes a good career for those adults with ADHD, why some with ADHD jump from one job to the next and much more about how to manage your career with ADHD.

Other questions I asked her include;

What are some of the reasons those with ADHD begin to dislike their work or profession?

What are the signs those with ADHD need to look out for if their career is turning out to not be a good fit?

What is the worst adults with ADHD can do when they decide they don’t want to do that line of work anymore?

How do you start the process of finding a new career?

How do you really find out your passion?

Where does ADHD and career intersect?

How do you know if you made the right or wrong choice?

You can find out more about Shell Mendelson on her website.
