The following were the Required Books for the original ADD Coach Training I delivered through my first company, The Optimal Functional Institute™ [OFI]
I chose these books initially because they contained information that I intended to refer to throughout the Coach Training modules that made up the certification-compliant, ADD-specific coach training that I began in beta way back in 1994 — the training that started a field.
To keep my student’s initial investment low, I chose the following books as ones I would refer to often because they were (and are) approachable, written in simple language, with great lists and descriptions of what these new ADD coaches would encounter with attentionally challenged clients.
Specific sections of these books were required as background information for class discussions, in addition to the module content that I developed.
I required the following books specifically because they had already languaged beautifully many of the elements that I felt it important to point out in specific areas of their training.
Two of the original choices, Susan Setley’s Taming the Dragons and
Thom Hartman’s Focus Your Energy, subsequently went out of print,
but if you can find them used, nab them!
As time marched on, other excellent books became part of the bibliography that those enrolled received with their course materials.
