Check out the article below written by On Purpose Adventures' own, Ben-Jamin Toy.

I was recently diagnosed with ADHD. Today, I want to share this part of my personal journey that has had a profound impact on my life. It's a topic close to my heart, and I believe it's essential to discuss mental health openly in our professional lives.

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder affects approximately 2.5% of adults and 8.4% of children. The National Institute of Mental Health explains that ADHD presents in adults with the following symptoms:

  • Inattention: Having difficulty paying attention
  • Hyperactivity: Having too much energy or moving and talking too much
  • Impulsivity: Acting without thinking or having difficulty with self-control

Can an individual be a good leader if they have ADHD?

My experience has shown me that leadership knows no bounds, and having ADHD does not define our potential.

He spoke at a few events in Greenville, South Carolina and didn't meet Jen when he was in town. A few weeks later Jimmy introduced them and Ben-Jamin asked Jen if she had more bandwidth. If she could take on more and she said yes. Jen felt like being a team building facilitator was a calling for her and we set to determining how to best utilize and promote Jen's skills.
