Inclusive Collaboration – How Our Differences Can Make the Difference (In Person)
hosted at Xero Wellington by NZ Southern & Central Branch
Personality quirks, character traits, mental diversity.
Modern workplaces thrive on innovation, diversity, and creativity. Therefore, we are exposed to a wide variety of people who think, react, work, communicate, interact, and socialise differently. Most modern workplaces value collaboration, teamwork, interaction, and change, but for many people, some of the ways we work and the working environments that result present unique challenges on top of the day-to-day technical challenges of their job. In some cases, our working environments can stifle the very creativity and innovative thinking we are trying to foster.
In this talk, we’ll explore how having a neurodiverse workforce can give employer’s competitive edge, and how coaches and leaders can support those with diverse needs and different requirements for effective interaction and collaboration which brings out the best in everyone’s differences.
