In recent episodes, we’ve talked about building a more ideal working life — one that’s suited to you and your particular strengths — as well as learning to avoid ADHD landmines. Both of those involve offloading tasks and surrounding yourself with people who can help you in areas that you’re naturally weak.
But being effective at working with people involves successfully delegating. And while delegating is often a struggle for anyone, it can be even harder for people with ADHD.
The good news is that delegating effectively is a skill that you can acquire. And it’s worth the effort, because without it, we’ll be limited. We’ll bottleneck processes, we’ll procrastinate, and we won’t be freed up to do our best work.
In this episode, we talk about the pitfalls around delegating that end to trip up those of us with ADHD, and Dana provides 5 ways for people with ADHD to be more effective delegators!

Just found your podcast last week (March 2021) and am catching up on the episodes. Really wished I had found it when you launched.. My story is similar to David’s. My ADHD was identified by my manager, who also has ADHD, two years ago due to repeated land mine encounters. COVID really brought some land mines back in play. I am a field auditor for a state tax agency. It fits my strengths very well, but the administrative things are what gets me. My question on delegation is how do I delegate when I have no one “below” me, and I deal with sensitive information, such as personal information.
Hey Aaron, Thanks for the feedback. We’re thrilled you like the pod! Those administrative tasks can be nightmares. Especially when you don’t have anyone to delegate to or can’t as in your case.
You’ll need at least a three-front approach. 1. Use technology as much as possible to make the admin tasks easier to complete. 2. Structure your day and work to pull you into finishing the admin tasks as close as possible to your last action. 3. Guard against any perfectionism which can occur with tasks like these.
Good luck, and again, thank you for checking in. Warmly, Dana
