In a profile in Chief Executive Magazine, Genesis10 CEO Harley Lippman says that executives can leverage characteristics of attention-deficit disorders to make themselves exemplary leaders—and maybe provide lessons to other CEOS not so afflicted.
He proves that a determined business leader can overcome ADD.
About 5 to 10 percent of the U.S. population have some form of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or Attention Deficit Disorder, according to the literature, meaning that a good number of CEOs are likely afflicted by these conditions.
“I do think a lot of CEOs have ADD, because if you have it, you have to be focused on the bottom line and results, on the big picture – which is a hallmark of a successful CEO,” Lippman told Chief Executive in the article published on December 18.
Lippman was recently recognized in USA Today as one of the Best CEOs in the U.S. for the second consecutive year, and by Staffing Industry Analysts as one of the most influential leaders in the industry. Genesis10 has earned national recognition as a top IT staffing firm from SIA, Gartner and Everest Group, and as one of 25 major U.S. companies with Best Work-Life Balance by Comparably.
