Meet the coach interview
My name is Rob Pellegriti and I am ready to support emerging leaders and adults with ADHD navigate the corporate world.
I have over 25 years of experience in leading and managing teams of all shapes and sizes in a variety of industries. My leadership career started with managing teams in large and well-established organizations, however, in recent years, I have had to set up teams, establish new ways of working, and manage start-up organizations through significant change.
During my corporate career, I have had the privilege of working with many young and aspiring leaders. I have seen many of these leaders not progress in organizations because they did not always have a coach in their corner to support their journey. Often, the leaders of these emerging leaders were preoccupied with their own challenges in surviving the politics of a corporate environment.
How will I coach you?
I am here to listen, support, and guide young and emerging leaders to navigate the corporate landscape so they can realize their full potential. I have been in the trenches, had the hard conversations, and have learned many lessons from the achievements and mistakes made along the way.
I use the following four principles when I coach:
- Listening – I will ask powerful questions to trigger thought so you will be doing most of the talking to identify the goals you want to achieve.
- Support – I will be in your corner to help you gain confidence and stop listening to the ‘little voice’ that all of us have and is our biggest obstacle in progressing to the next level in our careers.
- Guide – Effective leaders are not just born – they can be created, and my objective is to inspire you to believe in yourself and work to build a leadership toolkit that you can use on your journey which will empower you to be a high-performing leader
- Authenticity – Our discussions will be sincere and practical, designed to encourage different thinking without the corporate buzzwords.
Adults with ADHD
The corporate world can be a tough and unforgiving place – even tougher when you are neurodiverse and have ADHD.
For an ADHD brain, activities such as preparing an important presentation, planning and sequencing tasks, and leading workshops with large audiences can be overwhelming and exhausting.
Through lived experience in the corporate world, I have developed a toolkit of techniques and strategies that allowed me to positively translate ADHD into a superpower in my own career. Today, I smile when colleagues say “Rob, you are so organised!” or “Your notes are amazing – you must be a good listener”
How will I coach you?
I will work closely with you, using the following approach to guide and support your ADHD:
- Create awareness – ADHD is often misunderstood and stigmatised– I will help you understand the condition and how it plays out in the corporate world.
- Encourage acceptance – There is a tendency to focus on the past, especially for those diagnosed late in life. My objective is to empower you to focus on the future and help develop a path forward in your career.
- Support the translation of the condition into everyday – I will support you in implementing techniques and strategies that will help improve your effectiveness in the workplace and turn ADHD into a superpower.
- Reinforce strategies and techniques – We will discuss real-life scenarios and refine your approach, to ensure your career goals remain on track.
