ADHD at Work
Working life often plays a key part in our sense of well-being and achievement. But adults with ADHD may experience difficulties with focus and productivity. Self-help books list common organisational tips and recommend readers to choose “an ADHD-friendly career.” Easier said than done, of course. This workshop will discuss practical approaches to increase work performance and to reflect on career orientation. It is an interactive session based on experiences of professionals living with ADHD in Singapore, career coaching insights and ADHD clinical knowledge. Vuillermoz is an executive coach, psychotherapist and facilitator working with both companies and clinical teams. Her work at Zesty Minds focuses on coaching atypical professionals, many with ADHD or Asperger’s.
