Neurodiversity is becoming an increasingly common term in the workplace, but there is still limited understanding of the opportunity it presents. Given that we are in a talent crisis and at least 15% of the population are neurodivergent, it is critical that organisations deepen their understanding of this population and understand the implications for leadership, process, practice and culture.
In this presentation Helen will introduce the concept and the evidence that shows the positive impact of diverse thinking on innovation and productivity. She will provide insight into the conditions that exist under this umbrella term and the unique talents that each one presents. In addition, she will talk about the culture, leadership practices and adjustments that will enable all employees to bring their unique talents to the table, as well as how neurodivergent employees can be supported back to work after the current lockdown restrictions are lifted. In this session you will:
- Understand the opportunities neurodiversity presents for the workplace
- Understand the legal obligations with regard to neurodiversity in the workplace
- Learn how to support and get the best out of neurodivergent talent
- Receive a PDF copy of ’Neurodiversity@Work Playbook
