ADDCoach JumpStart™  identifies and tracks 100 key factors that combine to promote rapid practice building in a manner that is consistent with developing and maintaining a full, rewarding and profitable ADD Coaching practice.

It  gives you a way to quantify your efforts.

JumpStart™ is the initial program of the two practice building programs I developed to support the OFI Associates, the ADD coaches trained through The Optimal Functioning Institute™ during the course of the flagship ADD-specific coach training.

The ADD MasterCoach Profile was designed to take those coaches to the next level.

I also make both Programs available to my private mentor clients and currently use them to help  structure and motivate my Mentor Groups.

Modeled after the brilliant programs developed by one of my first coaching mentors, coaching field founder Thomas J. Leonard for CoachU (now a division ofCoach Inc.), the two programs together are designed to take you from your current coaching level, whatever that is, to ADD Coaching mastery.

Everyone begins with Jumpstart™, moving up to The ADD MasterCoach Profile only when your Jumpstart™ score lets us both know you are ready for it.

JumpStarting your Coaching Practice

The ADDCoach JumpStart™ Program is organized into ten categories, each with ten areas of focus — every point quantifying an important area for you to develop in your ADD Coaching Practice.


100 Key Practice Building Factors

10 CONCEPTS to Embrace
10 SHIFTS to Make
10 PROMISES to Make
10 PRACTICE STANDARDS to honor
10 PROCEDURES to Set
10 TOOLS to Gather
10 HABITS to Develop
10 STATISTICS to Track
10 Key Parts of MATERIALS Development
10 Things to STOP FOREVER

How it Works

As soon as you are in action on an item, you earn a point.  When that item is integrated into your life and your  practice, you earn another, for a perfect score of 200.

As your score increases, you will feel the impact in your practice.

When your score is above 100,  you will be in action on every item in each area you will need to put into place to be able to work at the top of the field.  When your score is above 150, you will be well on your way to a sustainably full practice.

Only once your score is above 160, may you begin work on
The ADD MasterCoach Profile™, working on the two programs concurrently.
