Controversial title? Perhaps. But in my experience as a career coach the several clients I’ve had with ADD/ADHD really do have more extreme strengths and more extreme challenges than the norm. Each of them have benefited tremendously from the process of sorting through, reflecting and determining preferences, natural talents and areas of keen interest. And of course, there’s the vital though a bit painful process of sorting through what hasn’t worked and what skills need to be developed or inherent weaknesses need to be addressed. Especially with some extreme weaknesses, it’s crucial to know one’s least favorite tasks and least favorite type of people and situations…those that clearly spell DANGER.
