Job coaching provides professionals with executive function skills, 1:1 coaching, and accommodation support so you can thrive at work and at home.
Our modern workplaces aren't always designed to support people who think, learn, and work differently, including those with ADHD, anxiety, depression, autism and more. It may feel like it takes more time, energy, and stress to keep up with your work then it should. You may feel like your daily work productivity doesn’t match your ‘output’ of effort and energy.
Common challenges include:
Overwhelmed by to-do lists or forgetting small things
Prioritizing easy tasks over difficult ones
Inconsistent or “all or nothing” productivity
Getting anxious before meetings or finding it hard to focus
Feeling like you never accomplished ‘enough’ at the end of the day or completed what you set out to do
Agonizing over dreaded tasks
Overthinking emails or managing large volume of emails/chats
Updating your work systems to keep up with a faster pace
Job coaching can help.
VocaWell’s job coaching is a neuro-inclusive tool to help professionals become more effective and productive at work, all while prioritizing your well-being. We teach executive-function skills, provide one-on-one coaching, and help you advocate for the right support.
Outcomes of job coaching:
Execute tasks in a way that’s deliberate and organized
Build consistent productivity instead of “all or nothing”
Start tasks when you want instead of procrastinating
Drive progress on long-term projects as well as the small stuff
Know what to do when you feel stuck or overwhelmed by work
Clearly communicate your thoughts in meetings and in writing
Learn about effective accommodation and self-advocacy strategies
We help professionals with disabilities, mental health conditions, and neurodivergence as well as those dealing with demanding workloads or who just want to explore ways to improve their worklives (sometimes all of the above!)
To meet the unique needs of those we serve, we bring experience in social work, job coaching, vocational rehabilitation and corporate HR & DEI strategy, coupled with extensive experience with assistive technology and workplace accommodations.
We specialize in working in the tech industry and with software engineers of all levels.
Executive Function Training
Time management, organization, decision making, memory, and focus are some of the complex activities that make up executive functioning.
Our abilities in these areas have huge impact on work performance and daily life. Yet most of the time we use them completely unconsciously, based on models we learned in childhood.
Executive function training gives you tailored higher level thinking tools and strategies to manage the challenges work and life throws your way.
Job, vocation, career—whatever you call it, the modern work environment is becoming more complicated—leading to epidemic levels or burnout and workplace stress.
Each industry and individual faces different barriers and challenges. Whether you need support with email management, writing whitepapers, or managing an overwhelming workload, we help you identify new tools and strategies to bring a sense of ease and flow back into your daily work life.
Accommodation & Advocacy
Did you know that employers are obligated to provide accommodations for things like ADHD, Depression, Autism, Anxiety, and more? Most people don't.
VocaWell coaches are experts in all aspects of workplace accommodations. We will deep dive your situation and help you understand the options to advocate for yourself inside AND outside of formal processes.
