#27: Your ADHD can be asset by learning more about it | Guest: Dr. Ned Hallowell

#27: Your ADHD can be asset by learning more about it | Guest: Dr. Ned Hallowell

It was an absolute pleasure to talk to Dr. Ned Hallowell in this special mini-episode.  When I got my diagnosis of ADHD, the first book that I picked up on ADHD was Driven to Distraction (audiobook) by Dr. Hallowell. This book provided so much insight and clarity into my ADHD and for the first time, I didn’t feel alone in my head. Since then I have been listening to his podcast and continuing to follow his work on ADHD.

I am super excited to share this episode with you and truly grateful that he accepted my invitation to come to my show.  We talked about how to adjust to new working conditions Ie. working from home. He talked about the importance of creating meaningful connections. The value of working with a coach to manage your ADHD, to disclose or not about your ADHD in the workplace, and finally his point of view on what steps to take if you have been diagnosed late in life with ADHD.
