How well do you understand and support
your team members with ADD / ADHD?

While tech companies attract a much higher number of neurodivergent leaders and team members with ADD (Inattentive ADHD) and ADHD than other industries, most startups struggle with identifying, understanding, supporting, and managing their neurodivergent team members.

In the gaming industry, the issues are even bigger. A recent viral social post reveals what it’s like:

Hopefully, this isn’t as bad in your workplace. Even so, your company is probably paying unnecessary costs, losing great employees, and losing efficiencies by not understanding how neurodivergent team members think and work.

This is a common problem because we haven’t been educated to understand how neurotypical brains and neurodivergent brains have different operating systems.

You wouldn’t expect an Android phone to be able to do certain things that only exist in an Apple iOS operating system, but we expect people with neurodivergent brains to be able to do neurotypical tasks well because neurotypical systems are considered to be the ‘normal’ way that ‘everyone’ does something.

Treating your team members with ADD / ADHD brains as if they should work in the same ways as your neurotypical team members causes chronic anxiety, miscommunications, skewed expectations, and loss of valuable people. It doesn’t have to be this way.

Discover why forward-thinking companies like Microsoft, Salesforce, IBM, SAP, Dell, and many others believe that having neurodivergent employees is a competitive advantage, and supporting them is both crucial and fundamental for your success.

Join us at Venture Mechanics Coworking Studio of Bellevue to learn best practices and have your questions answered. You’ll discover how to easily develop systems to improve your team’s communication and collaboration between neurotypical and neurodivergent team members.
