Chapter 22. ADHD > Dealing with Managers with ADHD

Dealing with Managers with ADHD

Dealing with managers with ADHD can be very frustrating, whether they are your superior, subordinate, or peer. Realizing that the problem is ADHD, and not lack of respect, can decrease your distress.

Understanding the spectrum of issues posed by ADHD and knowing what skills are not impaired can help a manager to assign tasks that play to the individual’s strengths and avoid weaknesses. In particular, you should avoid giving people with ADHD tasks that require high levels of organization, prolonged concentration on mundane tasks, and attention to details. Rather, assign tasks that enable them to often get up and move around and that depend on skills that they are strong in.
