Attention Deficit Disorder (which sometimes also includes Hyperactivity) comes from the parts of the brain that control impulse and inhibition working slower than other parts. Like dyslexics, many people with AD(H)D have strong visual skills and high levels of alertness. These differences can result in the following work related difficulties:
- Lack of attention to detail.
- Difficulty concentrating.
- Taking on too much and completing too little.
- Difficult relationships and seeming rude to others.
Many of our clients find that with the right support and strategies they can slow down long enough to capture their ideas and creativity whilst still fitting into the processes of recruitment and job success. Self awareness, dealing with excess energy and channelling productivity all combine to solve the problems and allow people with AD(H)D to fulfil their potential.
