ADHD in the Workplace

More than 5% of adults have Attention Deficit Disorder, and most don’t know it. Unmanaged, ADHD’s most common symptoms, such as inattention, disorganization, and poor time management, create problems at work for both employers and employees.  On the upside, under the right conditions, these employees are typically energetic and highly creative.

Identifying ADHD is the first step to managing it.  Whether your objective is to sensitize employers, managers or HR professionals about ADHD, or to offer tools for adults with ADHD or the professionals who interact with adults with ADHD, Linda can help get your message across.

Clients and employees with ADHD tend to be very loyal to organizations that help them manage their ADHD.  Recognize the signs and learn the best ways to work with people who have ADHD and you’ll help unleash the full potential of the people who live with it.

Typical Audience:  Employers, managers, HR professionals, business owners, insurance companies, adults with ADHD, professionals who serve adults with ADHD.

Audience: Entrepreneur, employer, employees who provide customer service.

Beyond Diagnosis and Medication: Improving the Lives of Adults with ADHD

ADHD has a huge impact on the quality of life of the adults living with it.  While medications offer relief from symptoms, they do not solve most of the problems.  A common expression used in the industry is, “pills don’t give skills.”  A whole-person approach to learning how to manage ADHD allows those adults challenged by ADHD to work toward a better life and to overcome the negative impact of ADHD.  This presentation reveals the key elements of a holistic approach to managing ADHD.

Typical Audience: Adults with ADHD and their loved ones, professionals who encounter adults with ADHD.

Audience: Adults and teens with ADHD, their family members, ADHD organizations.

ADHD and Finances: Finally, Dollars and Sense

A recent study revealed that 64% of adults with ADHD suffer serious financial problems.  This compares to only 15% in the general population, and in these tough economic times, these numbers may be even higher.  Inattention, impulsivity and frequent job changes create the perfect storm in ADHDers’ financial health.  If adults with ADHD hope to achieve financial stability, they need to learn a money management approach that does not rely on boring budgets and counting pennies.  This conference provides adults with ADHD with strategies to better manage their finances thus stabilizing their financial lives and improving their financial security.

Typical Audience: Adults with ADHD and their loved ones, professionals who serve ADHDers

 

ADHD and Your Life as a Couple

ADHD plays a major role in determining many aspect of a person’s life.  Adults with ADHD feel the impact of ADHD in their careers, their finances, their overall health and especially in their relationships.  Inattention, forgetfulness, disorganization, procrastination, impulsivity, difficulty managing frustration and emotions and financial problems are but a few ADHD-related symptoms that contribute to often volatile relationships.  Married before he was diagnosed, surviving financial hardships and career instability, as the spouse of a man with ADHD, Coach Linda reveals how, working together, she and her ADHD husband were able to create a strong and rich marriage.

This subject is offered as a half- or full-day workshop.  Linda usually delivers this workshop accompanied by her husband of 28 years.

Typical Audience: Couples where one or both partners have ADHD, adults with ADHD, who want to improve their odds of having a great relationship.
