Jeanette/Michelle E Dickinson

Michelle E Dickinson is a key note speaker, author, and mental health advocate.  Michelle and I talk about how and when to approach a supervisor about your ADHD or other mental health issues.  Some key points are 1.) having a trusting relationship with your supervisor, 2.) not playing the victim and taking ownership, 3.) come to the meeting with specifics as to what you need and how it can improve your work productivity.  

It’s hard at work when you don’t know what to do you have a review coming up and you are already anxious because you know it won’t be good.  How do you tell your boss what’s really going on or do you even tell them at all?  When is the best time to tell them?  Well Michelle and I talked all about this and more.

Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are voluntary, employee-led groups that foster a diverse, inclusive workplace aligned with organizational mission, values, goals, business practices, and objectives. Other benefits include the development of future leaders, increased employee engagement, and expanded marketplace reach.
