Do you, a loved one, or any of your employees struggle with time management, organization, or decision-making? Doesimpatience triggers disproportionate anger responses? These could all be signs and symptoms of ADHD. George Sachs, a clinical psychologist specializing in ADHD, discusses how this neuro-developmental disorder may present in the workplace and how it is strongly linked to FOMO.
When you are hypersensitive to rejection and constantly seeking acceptance, you will inevitably lack the confidence in the decisions you make. Like FOMO, ADHD can make you feel like whatever it is that you are doing at the moment, isn’t enough and it could always be better, preventing you from being able to focus on your present life.
George discusses the implications of this disorder that often impairs executive function, negatively impacting both personal and professional relationships. However, George also provides a path for diagnosis and to develop the strategies through behavioral interventions to manage ADHD and help overcome FOMO.
