People respond to stress in many different ways. Additionally,responses may alter depending on life influences. Some people are capable of dealing with tremendous pressure and can even thrive on it. Others, however, can find themselves overwhelmed by apparently minor developments or changes at work. Perhaps the most crucial indicator of how we deal with stress is the quality of our coping strategies. The more effectively we are able to respond to stress, the more we can minimise the anxiety associated with it, and the more resilient we will become in the long term.

Anyone finding work challenging will tell you that their stress levels start to rise just by thinking of the day ahead. The thought of planning their day’s work, taking notes at meetings, responding to emails, structuring reports, prioritising and organising information, can be a daily nightmare. Added to this, anxiety associated with perceived poor performance at work, can result in ill health and even long-term sickness.

If one word were to be applied to the adult with dyslexia who is having problems in the workplace, it would probably be disorganised. 

Where the words “could try harder” are often used in school reports, the adult equivalent very often is “canʼt get his act together”. Planning and organising, setting out timetables, distinguishing between the important and the urgent, remembering appointments, passing on telephone messages from memory and meeting deadlines can be exceptionally difficult for many people with dyslexia. Many complain of a tendency to get bogged down, overwhelmed by the workload and very stressed.

Do you write how you speak? For example, the boss emails you to ask why you were late back from lunch.

“I was late back to work this afternoon because I went to the shops to get some fruit and some veg for the dinner and some oven cleaner and then I went over to B and Q to get some wallpaper and paint and the car park was rammed and this one old lady started shouting at me and beeping her horn because I was blocking her in etc etc.”

It is perfectly acceptable to make a story of the situation in speech. However, if you are responding to an email or writing a report, it is much better to be succinct and organised in your response.

So instead of waffling on, let’s get to the point

“Sorry I was late back from lunch, I got held up in traffic”.

Developing skills in sentence structure enables you to say what you mean. No more hours and hours spent writing reports and no more hours and hours spent wading through reports to find the facts!
