“Supporting Neurodiversity at Work” – MindTools


“Do “great minds think alike”? No, not really. Neuroscience has found that every mind is different – to the point that a scan of someone’s brain is as recognizable as a fingerprint.

There are some commonalities, however. Most brains work similarly enough to have common ground and establish common working practices that fit most people, most of the time. But what about those of us who fall through the cracks? Those of us who process information differently?

Ed Thompson, founder and CEO of Uptimize, is dedicated to increasing awareness and support for employees who think differently, including individuals with autismADHD and dyslexia. Humanity can be described as “neurodiverse,” while these individuals are “neurodivergent,” thinking differently from most.”
