Why Do People Do What They Do?

The Enneagram of Personality assists us in the following areas:

  • Stop self defeating behavior
  • Effectively tapping into and utilizing your strengths
  • Compassion and acceptance of self and others
  • Effective communications


You experience your own flavor of ADHD.
You also have a personality, history and life situation.

We offer a Personality Assessment during your coaching experience, including assistance with self-typing and practical application to life experiences designed to assist you with personal growth and development.

The tool we use is not a typical personality assessment. It is a tool that is helpful as it looks at underlying motivation, not just behavior. As you understand more about yourself and your inner workings, you are able to not be so stuck in the challenging aspects of your personality type. It offers an understanding of how you function in the world, which in turn assists your coach in being much more effective.

For those just interested in understanding their personality and how it impacts their successes/challenges with ADHD, we also offer the personality assessment along with 1-2 sessions to discover type and determine a plan of action for personal growth.
