About This Event

Join us on Wednesday, October 17th for New Tech’s ADHD OASIS Virtual Community Meetup
on Tips and Tricks to Improve Your Motivation 

It’s important to understand how ADHD affects motivation, but it is often overlooked. We tend to focus on the side effects, such as sluggishness and forgetfulness. Once you understand the root cause, it’s easier to address and find strategies that can help you overcome what makes you feel ‘unmotivated.’

Join us for New Tech Northwest’s ADHD OASIS community meetup. This virtual event will combine community and coaching to support you in building supportive systems for managing your neurodiverse brain. Discover how to decrease your neurodiverse challenges while building relationships with fellow ADHDers and neurodiverse peers who are on similar journeys.

You can attend these virtual Meetups on the third Wednesday of every month. The more Meetups you attend, the more peer connections you’ll make with other professionals who have neurodiverse brains like you. Instead of being lonely in your experience, come laugh, learn, and connect with your community.

During the Meetups, we share personal and professional struggles as well as systems and strategies to overcome your executive functioning and working memory challenges like anxiety, overwhelm, miscommunication, interrupting, inattentiveness, stress, distractibility, procrastination, paperwork fails, imposter syndrome, having to mask your neurodivergence at work, and weak organization skills. Welcome!

One in five adults is neurodiverse and one in twenty have ADHD. In the tech industry, these numbers are even higher.

Unfortunately, most business cultures are not very neurodiverse-friendly because neurotypical folks have not been educated on what it’s like to live with our faster-than-normal brains, rejection-sensitive dysphoria, low executive function, low working memory, low dopamine, and low serotonin.

In these Meetups we explore how you can better explain neurodiversity to your loved ones and coworkers to bridge this education gap. The better you are at sharing what it’s like from your brain’s perspective, the less time you’ll spend being frustrated, disappointed, and defensive at work and home.

Maybe you’re undiagnosed but experience ADHD symptoms. While there is no replacement for a professional diagnosis from a licensed expert, if any of this feels familiar, you can take this test to assess whether you might have ADHD.

Pre-Meetup Reading

ADHD and Motivation Problems

What Group Coaching and Community Has Been Like for Some Members:

“Coaching with Brett Greene has been an important part of my journey towards accepting and managing my ADHD diagnosis. Being a part of a group of other professionals who are also affected by ADHD has been not only cathartic but has also made me more comfortable with sharing my diagnosis and my experiences with others. Brett has done a wonderful job of managing the group, striking the right balance between providing structure and topics to the coaching sessions, while allowing the group to share their experiences and strategies and ultimately dictate the flow of the sessions.”

– Niki Yoshiuchi, Lead MTS, Salesforce


“Coaching with Brett Greene has been eye-opening and invaluable. It has helped me to think about my neurodiversity as an asset rather than a weakness. I’ve enjoyed being in a group of other professionals with ADHD to learn from other people’s experiences. In our sessions I’ve gotten help for everything from planning to public speaking and career direction. I’ve also developed healthy new daily habits, such as leaving my phone in another room while working for at least a couple hours every day. I always have positive warm feelings following our sessions. Our coaching conversations consistently end with a sense of energy and optimism that’s missing during my day-to-day work week. It’s been incredible to go over career planning, Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria, ADHD, leadership development, relationship building, and public speaking in ways that connect all of these dots together. I’ve never come close to doing anything this personally and professionally powerful before.

“I didn’t find out that I had ADHD until I was 51. Getting that diagnosis put a lot of things in perspective for me as someone who has been starting SAAS companies for 20 years. There’s a reason why I’m attracted to entrepreneurship. First, it taps into a lot of the things I’m good at around problem solving and getting a healthy dose of new challenges. Second, I probably wasn’t a terrific employee. My undiagnosed ADHD made it hard for me to be good at taking on complex projects, staying organized, and meeting deadlines. Unfortunately, working for myself didn’t make me good at that stuff, it just meant that I couldn’t get fired. Brett has really helped me to level up as an entrepreneur. Together, we’ve been ramping up my executive function skills so that I can delegate better, get big projects done more efficiently, and spend more time leveraging my ADHD superpowers. I’m having more fun than I’ve ever had and becoming the entrepreneur I’ve always wanted to be.”
