Andres Nunez is a very successful guy who I have interviewed for my podcast and who also participated in the Kindness Matters Conference. He suffers from ADHD. His bosses didn’t understand some of his behavior, since he was a quiet person he didn’t speak up and he couldn’t understand why this boss would be breathing down his neck. His solution is really about communicating with each person on your team. One on one you can learn so much more of what makes a person tick. Getting to know all people in your organization you’ll have more flexibility in how everyone can work together. https://podcasts.heartatworkonline.org/andres-nunez-episode-48/
If you need some personal help, please reach out to the professionals that I have interviewed or someone else.
Just as each individual is different, each presentation of ADHD is also different in both symptoms and severity. One employee may struggle with perfectionism and time insensitivity while another may find planning and being prone to distraction as their biggest challenges.
Over time as a manager observes patterns as to how the employee’s ADHD symptoms affect day to day performance, they can begin to implement systems to counteract those symptoms. Sometimes just assigning certain tasks to be completed at a specific time of day, when a symptom is at its lowest, can be enough to overcome the symptom completely.
An ADHD Employee Can Succeed
As with most employees it takes time to understand how best a person works by identifying their unique skills, talents and insights that will strengthen the organization. With an ADHD employee a bit more attention may yield drastically better results. Read more in this article.
People with ADHD of all ages are more likely to have problems with social skills, such as social interaction and forming and maintaining friendships. This is true for all subtypes. About half of children and adolescents with ADHD experience social rejection by their peers compared to 10–15% of non-ADHD children and adolescents. People with attention deficits are prone to having difficulty processing verbal and nonverbal language which can negatively affect social interaction. They also may drift off during conversations, miss social cues, and have trouble learning social skills. According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Attention_deficit_hyperactivity_disorder
I hope to bring more awareness about other mental health issues that we all deal with at some point in our lives. If you are suffering from depression, PTSD or just want to feel better please book a session with me for hypnosis. https://booking.appointy.com/heartatwork
