Kicking Off 2023 Well: Finances and Career — How You Can Succeed Professionally with ADHD

Here’s something that might surprise some: Many people actually excel at work because of their ADHD.

But people who have ADHD — and who don’t have it — often need to be reminded of that. Because excelling at work with ADHD seldom happens easily. In fact, succeeding at work with ADHD can be a challenge.

We see it in a whole bunch of workplace stats. Adults with ADHD are:

  • 18 times more likely to have their employer discipline them than employees without ADHD.
  • About five times more likely to be fired than someone without ADHD
  • More than three times as likely to suffer workplace or career “burnout” than employees without ADHD.

But there are conditions and situations where people with ADHD thrive in the workplace. That happens when employees understand their strengths and weaknesses. It happens when employers understand that helping employees to do their best work ultimately helps the employer. And it happens when people choose careers that fit them well.

ADHD Online has taken a deeper look at what it takes to excel professionally with ADHD. We talked with three professionals who’ve become very successful in their careers. They offered insights on how they found that success, and tips on how others with ADHD can find it as well.
