Why is it important to address neurodiversity?
Stigma, a lack of awareness, and a lack of appropriate infrastructure (such as office setup or staffing structures) can cause the exclusion of people with neurodevelopmental differences. Understanding and embracing neurodiversity in communities, schools, healthcare settings, and workplaces can improve inclusivity for all people
Nearly 20% of people globally are neurodivergent. As neuroscience develops, the breadth of neurodiversity is becoming better understood, and thus it is also essential that leaders in the workplace should have knowledge and tools around how to work with employees and colleagues to keep harmony and effectiveness between individuals and among teams. Hiring different brains with varying perspectives means welcoming different talents and skills into the workplace
What do we cover with this workshop?
This three-hour interactive workshop will give managers a basic understanding of neurodiversity and will support them in creating an environment that maintains sensitivity toward neurodivergent employees, facilitating cooperation among people with varying needs, and managing the complexity of many neurotypes under one roof with shared goals.
We will cover the potential strengths and challenges of neurodivergence in the workplace, discuss how to work with the needs of your company’s specific neurodivergent employees and review the preferred language around neurodiversity.
The workshop can be done for both leaders and associates
