Neurodiversity at Work – Training from Vista

How can you build your managers’ confidence in managing neurodiversity at work challenges?

Managers do not need to be neurodiversity experts:  they need the skills to be ‘respectfully curious’ and have the confidence to manage neurodivergent team-members inclusively and effectively.

Our neurodiversity at work training is designed by employment lawyers and learning experts, and will:

  • Give your team a solid understanding of the way neurodivergent colleagues may experience their working environment
  • Give managers the skills to ask good quality questions to identify what’s needed in each individual case
  • Support managers in making their working environment effective and constructive for everyone

Where  a colleague’s neurodivergence is (or could be) the cause of poor performance or behaviour – we provide techniques and skills to nip situations in the bud by confident, constructive conversations:  And, if your formal processes are engaged – how to do that fairly too.

What exactly does a neurodiversity at work workshop look like?

We build all our training programmes bespoke, so that’s down to where you want the emphasis of your managers’ workshop to be. Here is an example of what a typical course could look like, but please get in touch to tailor this for your business.
