Most professionals in the ADHD community recommend that you not disclose your condition at work. Instead, ask your supervisors and/or colleagues for accommodations that will help you be more productive - a door to your office, organizational software, flex time, and so on. To smooth your way in the workplace:
- Frame the request in a positive way. Say, "[This accommodation] would really help improve my productivity."
- Ask for a daily check-in with your boss. This accommodation provides accountability by having you commit to goals and will help you learn how to prioritize.
- Trade responsibilities with a co-worker. Man the phones for an hour while the co-worker who usually does this enters data in a spreadsheet for you.
