30 Mar ADHD IN THE WORKPLACE
Excellent focus, time boundless, attention to details, productivity, and enthusiasm- they are all things employers are looking for in their employees. But when a person has ADHD, it is tough for him/her to excel at work and sometimes even keep a job. ADHDers can easily feel frustrated and left out, and disheartened when someone criticizes them. Lack of self-confidence, mood instability, procrastination, past failures, uninterested job profile, poor attitude, and low-enthusiasm are the major causes of ADHD. But it is a treatable disorder. There are various medication and non-medication treatments out there that can help individuals with work-related obligations if you want to go down the traditional route. However there are others ways as to support you with which you can discuss with me at anytime.
How does ADHD Affect Employment?
The symptoms of ADHD can adversely impact the employment rate. As estimated, 8 million to 9 million Americans have ADHD. Individuals with ADHD have difficulty focusing at work and are easily distracted. Due to these irresponsible attitudes towards professionalism, they either lose their job or wind up bouncing from job to job. One study has stated that people with ADHD often had more trouble keeping track of multiple projects, and deadlines are enormously challenging.
If you have ADHD, it may be hard to:
● Handle multiple projects.
● Follow directions.
● Attention to details.
● Sit still.
● Emotion issues.
Tips for working with ADHD
● You can use headphones to block distractions.
● Sit with a timer. Work 25 minutes and take rest for 5 minutes, do this until your day job gets finished.
● Listen more and speak less.
● Do what is important, and never leave things for tomorrow.
● Join ADHD sessions.
● Listen to motivational podcasts.
