Building a Thriving Workplace for Neurodiversity-Foundations to Success

“Communication breakdowns eat strategy for breakfast, lunch AND dinner.” -Carole Jean Whittington, Founder of Mind Your Autistic Brain

You may have frameworks, strategies and well planned KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) but if the teams and people these strategies and plans rely on aren’t effectively communicating, feel psychologically safe in their work environment, are acknowledged for who they are and what they do, and given the supports needed to succeed, those “best laid plans” get eaten for breakfast, lunch AND dinner.
