Communicating Complex HR Topics to Employees With Short Attention Spans

December 10

Be equipped to help your teams thrive by understanding how different brains work.

To say we are all distracted is an understatement at this time in our history. Social media, politics as well as social issues all fight for our attention. However, for many, including adults with ADHD and those that struggle with executive functions, distractions and challenges with paying attention can be a real effort and a lifelong struggle. The more we understand how different brains work, the more equipped we will be to help our teams thrive. Distracted employees can pay attention and stay focused under the right conditions and circumstances. And they can go from good employees to great team members if their strengths are fostered. This topic will introduce you to adult ADHD, how the brain works and how to create an environment where those who have challenges paying attention can do their best work and thrive. You cannot force someone to pay attention. However, you can help. The content in this program, while focusing much on adult ADHD, can be used to help any employee that finds themselves distracted and challenged to pay attention.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to discuss executive functions and challenges in working memory.
  • You will be able to review different ways to improve communication with distracted employees.
  • You will be able to identify basic accommodations you can provide distracted employees.
  • You will be able to recognize other helpful resources for your distracted team members.
