  • ADHD, Real Change, and Keep it Simple EP 112

    28/10/2021 Duración: 39min

    Denslow is the leader and quite possibly the pillar of coaching for organizers. Denslow realized that while she could help people get organized, if they haven’t learned the habits to maintain it, they just end up frustrated and disorganized again. Coaching filled this gap. Real change comes from the opportunity behind the thought of I need to get organized.  So many of our organizing and productivity clients have ADHD or are incredibly stressed.   Denslow and I talk about women and ADHD – how it shows up differently and how girls get lost because they don’t cause as many problems in the classroom. ADHD may be showing up as anxiety in your teen girl.  You won’t want to miss Denslow’s take on the newest research from Russell Barkley on ADHD and life expectancy.  Denslow Brown, CPO, CPO-CD, ICD Master Trainer, MCC  After 20 years as a professional organizer (working on-site in homes, home offices and businesses), Denslow went on a search for a method to support the belief and behavior changes her

  • Pausing, The Brain – Fast or Contemplative, and The Photo Gallery Temptation EP 111

    21/10/2021 Duración: 18min

    ADHD in adulthood is about figuring out how to do the right thing at the right time. We find it hard to manage the details of daily life and we are very in the moment. Add in the stress of this insta-life we live now and you can imagine what it’s like for the bright, shiny object syndrome brain. The power is in the pause. And that’s very hard for the ADHD brain. But if we can build in that brief pause to consider our next right step, our work and life would be much easier. That’s response inhibition. We need to start by stopping. Tune in for ways we can place this pause in to our day so that we can work more efficiently and harness the superpowers of our differently wired brains.

    I asked Dan Berman to share a story from his time in ad sales at Oprah Winfrey Network. He was influenced by her leadership. So we kick off our interview with the importance of authenticity in leadership. We then discuss sales and how there is no selling in sales. It’s all about the connection and the mutual win. It’s not about what you sell and it’s all about who you are. Find out why the key to coaching comes from the Eagles: “So often times it happens that we live our life in chains. And we never even know we have the key.” Bottom line whether it’s sales or leadership or coaching, it’s all about listening and caring about others.

    22/07/2021 Duración: 37min

    Leah explains how her background in teaching influences her leadership. Leah does theatre in her free time. We talk about how we can become better leaders because of our variety of experiences. The starting point of difficult conversations is about being in our story. Maybe we felt we didn’t get the validation we needed as kids either at home or in our education. We need to address the deep roots of the other person’s story so they can feel heard. That’s where the real connection happens. Leah contends that when we gently have those difficult conversations, our connections can grow even stronger. Rest is part of productivity. I agree and Leah will tell us why it works for her.
