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

The bad news is that most companies aren’t great at supporting employees with ADHD. The good news is that a little bit of training can transform that problem.

The good news is that once you understand how ADD and ADHD brains work, and learn some strategies of support, you can create new helpful systems quickly.

Join us and invite founders, investors, and leaders you know to discover how to support team members with ADD / ADHD or other neurodivergent conditions to increase your company productivity, profits, job satisfaction, team communication, employee retention, and more!

Why You Should Attend

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.

Your company is probably paying unnecessary costs, losing great employees, and losing efficiencies by not understanding how neurodivergent team members think and work.

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

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

You wouldn’t expect an Android phone to be able to do certain things that only exist in an Apple iOS operating system because you understand that while they both work on phones, they operate in different ways.

Similarly, it’s a false assumption to 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.
