ADHD: When a Professional Can’t Help

By Jeff Copper, MBA, PCC, PCAC, CPCC, ACG – May 30, 2022

Those with ADHD often seek help for their symptoms, but there are limitations to a professional’s ability to help. It comes down to how much the person is willing to be helped and what they are willing to do on their part to make use of that help.

In many cases, the person says to their family that they want help, but in reality, when the family reaches out to a professional on the person’s behalf, it seems to be a different story.

ADHD: When Passion Is Lost

By Jeff Copper, MBA, PCC, PCAC, CPCC, ACG – April 25, 2022

Athletes, dancers, pilots, coders, artists, and others with ADHD can be passionate, dedicated, all-in, and focused. But what if their passion evaporates?

It’s interesting that for those with ADHD the passion is almost like a drug. The issue is not that they can’t pay attention; it’s actually that they can’t stop paying attention to it.
