    Not sure what this topic is all about? That's OK! We are learning together as this is a newer topic!

    Neurodiversity is the range of differences in individual brain function and behavioral traits. The word “neurotypical” refers to people who have brains that function in a similar way to most of their peers. According to the Cleveland Clinic, "the term “neurodivergent” describes people whose brain differences affect how their brain works. That means they have different strengths and challenges from people whose brains don't have those differences."

    During this presentation we shine the light on one of your biggest opportunities to thrive, and it's the one that is often completely invisible. Brains @ Work is an exploration of the simple mindset shift that helps neurotypical and neurodiverse people to coordinate, communicate, and support one another so everyone can bring their full selves to work, and contribute their zone of genius. 

    In this session you will learn:

    • How understanding neurodiversity helps you hire the right people for the right roles, and keep top talent from leaving
    • How to get out of your own brain so you can see someone else’s gifts
    • How the small act of creating safety can change your entire company
    • How open and non-judgemental communication can help everyone meaningfully contribute.
