Re: Laid Off? Fired? Check This Out!

Sazz was fired this week. Got told I just don't have enough focus, and have trouble staying on task.
How does this reasoning not surprise me?

It probably wasn't you that had the problem, it was the guy that sits next to you.
I often get mixed up for unreliable people too ??

Hope you are in too much of a pickle.

Being ADHD has made me more compassionate, which is what I think is severely missing in the corporate setting. I think this is why I am able to keep my staff long-term even though they make sh*t (I honestly can't control this, it's corporate calculated) and for the most part have one of the most successful sites in my region. I think the PERSONAL should come back to business. If we understood why our staff weren't being productive in the first place, and made systems that worked with these reasons, it would make the production more sustainable, and the company more profitable. Now, business burns people out then replaces them with someone who has something to prove, they burn out, and the cycle continues.

*going back to work now...haha*

Did anybody ASK why you couldn't focus?? Did anybody offer to shift your workload to something more aligned with your skills and interests? Ugh, leaders can be so dense.
