Biography

Focus Action SuccessProfessional Certified Coach (ICF)
Trained and specialized in ADHD Coaching
Social + Emotional Intelligence Certified Coach
Bachelor of Administration

Linda Walker is a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) and a graduate of the ADD Coach Academy (http://www.addca.com.)  Since 2005, she has been providing specialized ADHD coaching and training to English- and French-speaking entrepreneurs, professionals, adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) and other creative geniuses who struggle with productivity, organization and focus.

Finding that traditional organizational and productivity approaches fall short when used by adults with ADHD, she has created several programs designed especially for adults with ADHD.  These include Thrive! The Natural Approach to Optimal Focus and Effectiveness for Creative Geniuses  (http://www.focustothrive.com), an eight-week program that solves the problems unaddressed by traditional productivity training and coaching and Achieve! The Natural System to Take Control of Your Life and Unlock Your Full Potential for Creative Geniuses (http://www.plantoachieve.com), an eight-week program on ADHD-friendly time and project management.  Ms. Walker’s programs empower participants to dramatically improve their productivity at work, while simultaneously enabling them to create a healthy work-life balance and to engage in activities that make their hearts sing, activities they could previously only dream of pursuing, or that they had set aside because their daily struggles with ADHD left them exhausted and drained.

Ms. Walker is a Social + Emotional Intelligence Certified Coach.  Social and Emotional Intelligence encompasses many skill sets, including stress management, resilience, managing conflict productively, powerful influencing skills, catalyzing change, teamwork and collaboration, building trust and more.

She is a recognized leader in the field of adult ADHD, and is a strong advocate for ADHD awareness.

She has been campaigning to sensitize businesses of the value of investing in helping their employees with ADHD and provides training workshops targeting HR professionals, managers and is often hired to provide workshops to employment case workers who support adults struggling with finding work, many of whom have Attention Deficit Disorder.  She serves on the Board of Directors of ADDA, (Attention Deficit Disorder Association), an international non-profit organization that provides information, resources and networking opportunities to help adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder lead better lives; she is currently the Chair of ADDA’s Workplace Issues Committee.  She also serves as a consultant to the U.S. Partnership on Employment and Accessible Technology, an initiative to facilitate and promote the use of accessible technology in hiring, employment, retention and career advancement of individuals with disabilities.
