 Edward (Ned) Hallowell Biography

Edward (Ned) Hallowell is a child and adult psychiatrist as well as the founder of the Hallowell Centers with offices in Sudbury, MA, New York City, San Francisco, and Seattle. These centers specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of learning differences, especially ADHD and dyslexia, using a strength-based approach. A graduate of Harvard College, Tulane Medical School, and a Harvard residency and fellowship in adult and child psychiatry, Dr. Hallowell served on the faculty of the Harvard Medical School for 20 years until he retired from academia to devote his full professional time to seeing patients, writing books, and giving lectures and seminars.

A specialist in learning differences, Dr. Hallowell's 1994 ground-breaking New York Times best-seller on ADD called Driven to Distraction brought attention deficit disorder to the general public. He went on to write 19 more books on various psychological topics including several more books on ADD; the transformative force of connection in human life; how to deal with worry; how to forgive; how to raise children so that they will become the adults we hope they will become; how to run organizations so that each employee achieves at his or her peak; and his latest book on how to achieve focus in the modern, highly charged and distracted workplace.

In aggregate, Dr. Hallowell's books have sold over 2 million copies. He has appeared on every major TV show including Oprah, Good Morning America, The Today Show, CBS Morning Show, The View, Dr. Oz, Dr. Phil, 60 Minutes and CNN.

Dr. Hallowell's major contribution to the field of learning is his strength-based approach. Having both ADHD and dyslexia himself, and having thrived with those conditions throughout his life, he sees them not as disorders but rather as traits that can confer enormous benefit. If those traits are managed well, they turbo-charge success. But if they are managed poorly or not recognized at all, they can lead to disaster. The stakes are high. For this reason, Dr. Hallowell is rather messianic in getting the message out to recognize and capitalize on these traits, which he calls "The American Edge."

Be it treating ADHD in his clinics, writing about the wide range of topics he addresses in his books, or speaking from the many stages on which he's appeared, Dr. Hallowell always comes across as genuine, humorous, transparent, and passionate about his calling.

Speaking Topics
  • ADHD: It Can Break You or Make You

    Dr. Hallowell, one of the world’s experts on ADHD, explains his strength-based approach to understanding this fascinating and widely misunderstood condition. He shows how properly managed ADHD can lead to spectacular success of a kind that cannot be planned or predicted. It is people who have ADHD who advance the world. In this talk, Dr. Hallowell takes the audience through a process by which this condition can be diagnosed and managed best.

  • The American Edge: The Mind of the Entrepreneur

    Most entrepreneurs have the trait that is so misleadingly called ADHD. Dr. Hallowell renames it “The Entrepreneur’s Trait,” and shows how phenomenally beneficial it can be. A follow-up to talk # 1, this presentation shows how many different paths people with the entrepreneurs trait have followed, and what factors predict the greatest success.

  • Cowboys, Cowhands, and Ranchers

    The third in a series begun by talks # 1 and # 2, in this talk Dr. Hallowell offers his observation that most adults fall into one of three groups: cowboys, cowhands and ranchers. Cowboys are the risk-taking, shoot-first-aim-later, innovative, action-oriented creative types. Cowhands are the dedicated people who sweat the details, connect with others, and make the operation run. Finally, ranchers are the big-picture managers, the leaders who inspire people, give credit to others, and take the group forward. Knowing which one you are, and how to take advantage of your style, can make for big successes. Organizations need all three.

  • Shine: How to Bring the Best Out of Yourself and the People You’re With

    In this talk Dr. Hallowell offers a 5-step plan for bringing out the best in people in any organization or other work setting. Rooted in his 30 years of experience in promoting peak performance, this simple, but highly researched and evidence-based plan can lead a person from mediocrity to achievement at the highest level.

  • Connecting in a Disconnected World

    We live in a world characterized by what Dr. Hallowell calls “the modern paradox”: miraculously connected electronically, we are growing disconnected interpersonally. This social isolation is as dangerous a risk factor for early death as cigarette-smoking, high blood pressure, and obesity. Touting the power of “the other Vitamin C, Vitamin Connect,” Dr. Hallowell offers a detailed prescription for a richly connected life that anyone can follow. This Vitamin C is free, infinite in supply, and feels good to take. Sadly, most people don’t take advantage of its amazing power.
