Procrastination beats them all
Thank you to the more than 600 ADD / ADHD Adults who filled out the Thrive with ADD survey on Workplace Challenges last week!
Once again, Procrastination takes the prize as the number one problem. Here are the most troublesome issues for responders who were asked to indicate their top workplace challenges. (The percentage indicates what percent of responders checked it as one of their top 3 to 5):
- Procrastination – 53%
- Mentally Staying on Task – 46%
- Overwhelmed – 42%
- Disorganization – 37%
- Follow-Through – 37%
- Prioritizing – 36%
Most valuable were heartfelt comments by responders, who were encouraged to elaborate in their own words throughout the survey.

Why conduct a survey?
Thrive with ADD Training Program in 2012
I conducted this survey because I'm developing an in-depth, comprehensive program of training to help ADD / ADHD Adults overcome their difficulties in the workplace. Although I've a pretty strong understanding of what the problems are after coaching on ADD work and career issues for over 10 years, I wanted to hear in people's own words how they felt. Click here to read what people said.
I also wanted to find out what kind of a training program people wanted most. It seems that convenience is the major factor; people wanted to know they can listen / view online classes in their own time. They also valued live webinar training.
Most importantly, respondents cried out for the need for support throughout the training process. Since follow-through is a challenge, I will create an implementation support and accountability process into the program.
I'm so charged up about creating what will be Thrive with ADD's biggest program ever! You'll see training begin to roll out in the next few weeks, so watch your emails and SUBSCRIBE to the blog to keep informed.
