The studies show adults with ADHD do much better… at everything… when they add accountability to their tools. If you want to get things done but you don’t have the structure you’d like, this is the group for you. Do you struggle with:
- forgetting things?
- keeping track of what you’re doing (and what you’re supposed to be doing)?
- starting tasks, and staying focused until they are complete?
Accountability can help you get more of anything done. We will meet every weekly to discuss progress and set new priorities for the week ahead. We all help each other with support, routine check-ins, and mutual effort.
What do you do?
- Choose at least 3 items you’ll report on each meeting.
- Stay on point – you can talk about other things, AFTER you’ve shared your results.
- Commit to the weekly meeting (in an emergency, you may have to miss it – but don’t make it a habit.)
- What’s said in the group stays in the group.
What we’ll do.
- If you’re stuck, we’ll lead the group to help you.
- Start and End on time. It’s an important part of being accountable to each other!
- Track commitments and progress together. We will maintain a shared Google document noting participants SMART goals for each week.
Keep Goals Smart
- Specific – Rather than “get more exercise,” say “ I will workout 3 times this week.”
- Measurable – Can you tell when you have achieved the goal? For example “Read chapters 1 & 2.”
- Attainable – The goal should be achievable, even if it’s a stretch.
- Relevant – Each small goal should relate to whatever your bigger goals are.
- Time-bound – Be clear when you will complete each goal.
Join us Tuesdays as we support each other and get more done.
Group Leader Information
Doug Snyder – bio
Doug’s life history is filled with wide-ranging experiences that include designing business software, custom car fabrication, serving on a submarine nuclear engineering team, and learning to pilot airplanes to name just a few. He has been unknowingly exploiting the gift of life with ADHD.
After being diagnosed as an adult with ADHD, Doug has focused his energies on learning how to make the most of it. For several years he participated in small group coaching and peer-mentoring with intelligent, like-minded adults. This experience of learning with and from other ADHDers has given Doug great insight into the possibilities of excelling with ADHD.
Stephanie Antoine – BIO
My name is Stephanie Antoine and I am a relentless advocate for Self- Care and Stress Reduction. I love being present for peers in the ADDA Accountability Group, where we cultivate an atmosphere of kindness and vulnerability, which reduces shame and increases self efficacy and self esteem.
I am a Self- Care and ADHD Coach Specialized in Supporting People in Caring Roles.
I am certified to teach Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. I trained to be an Iyengar Yoga and Restorative Yoga Teacher, earned ACSM Personal Trainer and ICF Coaching Certificates while working as a Violinist, having two kids with Special Needs and Emigrating from the UK to the US.
I experienced the adversity and multiple challenges of undiagnosed ADHD and was diagnosed at age 40 (after my son was at age 3). I endured what felt like a lifetime of stress due to chronic pain, life- threatening Asthma, PMDD, compulsive eating, complicated Grief and Burnout from striving to succeed despite my relative position in the Social Hierarchy. Over time I gained rich insights from a decades- long practice of meditation and silent retreats, and figured out ways to thrive despite the challenges in my life and to access Deep Rest in Chaos.
I bring my lived experience to the work with my clients, who need to make space for themselves and can’t walk away from their responsibilities. They build resilience and stress tolerance by using self-care strategies with inclusive resources to promote long- term behavioral change. My clients become more empowered to self-advocate and understand their intersections. They enact lasting change to increase their efficacy and resiliency for the long term. www.stephanieantoine.com
