Neurospiciness in the Workplace Ep. 1

Ready to spice things up? If you've been keeping up with social media, you know that neurodivergence (or as we like to call it, neurospiciness) is one of the hottest topics online right now. So this week on The Mindbuffs Podcast, we're starting a new series called Neurospiciness in the Workplace. Our goal is to help create inclusive work environments where people with neurodiversity can thrive. In this episode, we'll be discussing disabilities commonly seen in workplaces, such as ADHD, dyslexia, autism, and OCD. Understanding neurodiversity can be complex and it's an ongoing learning process. And, while you can reference credible sources like Google Scholar for more information, HR personnel may not always have the same level of knowledge and support as an expert in the field. Raising awareness is an important step when educating employees and employers on how to improve work-life balance for these neurospicy individuals. For example, a study by JP Morgan showed that people diagnosed with Autism work 48% faster and are 140% more productive than their neurotypical peers. Unfortunately, the National Autistic Society reports that 85% of autistic adults are unemployed or underemployed. Understanding is key to challenging the stigma surrounding mental health and neurodiversity. Once we understand the challenges faced by neurodivergent individuals, such as feeling different and the anxiety that can come from the extra effort required by some people to meet educational and work expectations. This can leave people feeling overwhelmed. Additionally, many people hide their conditions to avoid judgment. Let's overcome the stigma attached to Neurospiciness and recognize everyone's unique strengths. Finding passion and support in your work or education is crucial. Employers, check in with your staff or employees to identify their interests and strengths. Let's break down the barriers and prioritize our mental health, at home, in public spaces, and in our workplace.

Testimonials

What our clients are saying

“A game changer”

A 20/10 Experience with Mindbuffs! For the past few years, I've had the privilege of collaborating with the incredible team at Mindbuffs. Their expertise has been a game-changer, both for my personal mindset and my effectiveness as a small business owner. Their support has been a lifeline, offering clarity and direction as I navigated various challenges.

Jordan Jeske

I run a volleyball club in Edmonton and had MindBuffs recommended to me by one of our coaches as a way to help young athletes learn about the psychological side of sport. We had all of our team receive training from their experts and I was incredibly happy with the feedback that I received from our athletes, parents, and coaches. Their excellent communication and ability to work with the busy schedules for all of our teams will keep me going back to them for our teams year after year. I strongly recommend MindBuffs to anyone searching for training in their area of expertise.
