Brief Coaching offers a new approach to coaching by considering how the client will know when they have reached their goal, and what they are already doing to get there.

TimeSavor Coaching was developed for those with time management and ADHD issues. It uses a unique blend of Applied Positive Psychology and Co-Active Coaching. It is a combined strengths-based approach to clients' struggles with time. Among many areas for improvement, clients frequently seek coaching support for prioritizing, timeliness, focus, goal setting and completion, motivation, and improved relationships. Using narrative, exercises in gratitude, and the time management principles of savoring, this approach changes client focus from what goes wrong to what can be "even better if. From the outset, TimeSavor Coaching asks: "What are you good at?" It uses researched based methods from Positive Psychology, especially Appreciative Narrative, Gratitude, and Savoring. These strengths applications are combined with principles from Change Theory. The result is, those with ADHD and time management issues develop reachable goals and de-cluttered agendas.
