Success with ADHD- New Book
Permission to Proceed by Master Certified Coach David Giwerc provides adults with ADHD the keys to leading a more fulfilling life
Opening the door to success: The founder of the renowned ADD Coach Academy reveals his roadmap to discovering passion, purpose and possibility
ALBANY, N.Y. — Permission to Proceed: The Keys to Creating a Life of Passion, Purpose and Possibility for Adults with ADHD by David Giwerc provides adults with ADHD an inspiring guide to creating personal and professional success. “Inside each of us are natural strengths,” says Giwerc, Master Certified Coach and founder of the ADD Coach Academy. “But for those of us with ADHD, those strengths are often buried or forgotten. By uncovering our hidden talents, we can overcome our challenges and build a path to our dreams.”
This pioneering new book by a leader in the field of ADHD coaching opens the door to a world of possibility for adults with ADHD – too many of whom have given up on themselves and their dreams due to the challenges of ADHD. David, who was diagnosed with ADHD at age 38, shows readers how to
• Recognize their unique brain wiring
• Define their own “brand” of ADHD
• Maximize strengths and minimize weaknesses
• Rediscover inspiration and motivation to pursue their passions
• Cultivate “habits of the heart” to achieve their life purpose
The practical tools contained in this book were forged through years of research, education and David’s own personal struggle with the challenges of ADHD. This essential guide draws on a combination of inspiring personal tales, hands-on exercises and dynamic visual models, making it is a must-read for people with ADHD and those who support them—including friends, family, partners, co-workers and coaches.
“David Giwerc, is a true master practioner who’s been working in the trenches for decades, gives us the precious gift in this book of his hard-earned experience, wisdom, and knowledge. This is the best kind of book: practical, honest, written from life, and filled with truth as well as grace,” says Edward Hallowell, M.D., psychiatrist, nationally recognized ADHD expert, and best-selling author of CrazyBusy and co-author of Driven to Distraction.
“Reading this book is like having a master teacher right in the palm of your hand,” says Sari Solden, MS, LMFT, author of Women with Attention Deficit Disorder and Journeys through ADDulthood. “Adults with ADHD will be inspired to dream once again as David expertly guides them toward creating the meaningful and fulfilling lives they deeply desire.”
