    About the Program

    Many work teams struggle with cohesive team dynamics, inconsistent productivity and employee longevity.

    While leaders may feel stressed and frustrated about this issue, their team members might feel misunderstood and undervalued at the same time. Most teams are missing a critical key to creating a healthy, thriving team culture – understanding and embracing neurodiversity. In this 90-minute workshop, you’ll learn how being aware of neurodiversity in your team can help you create a more harmonious team culture, improve motivation and productivity, and foster loyalty to the mission.

    Through an interactive networking workshop, you’ll discover:

    • The top 5 challenges I see in workplaces today that impact team cohesiveness, productivity, and employee longevity.

    • What even well intentioned, big hearted managers who value employee wellbeing might be missing in their approach to nurturing a positive workplace culture

    • The meaning of neurodiversity and some surprising ways it could be impacting your company.

    • How you can create a culture of collaboration, inclusion, and ownership where every employee feels valued and empowered to contribute to the company's purpose in their own unique way.

    • Why celebrating and acknowledging your unique skills and those of your teammates leads to a harmonious environment where team members help each other be their best.

    Who this is for:

    • Leaders and team members in mission-driven organizations that prioritize team wellness, diversity, equity, and inclusion.

    • Leaders who find themselves stuck in the day-to-day of management, pushing the mission of the team further down the to-do list.

    • Neurodivergent individuals (and allies) who desire to feel more valued and supported at work.

    • Team members who feel overwhelmed in their day-to-day work and find themselves thinking about tasks even when not “clocked in.”

    • Employees who want to advocate for themselves and others by improving their leadership and communication skills.


    About the Presenter

    Jennifer Grindeland Founder & CEO The Working Well

    Hi, I’m Jenn! After experiencing two traumatic brain injuries while working as part of a team, I witnessed how confused my supervisors and peers were with how to handle my neurodivergent ways of working. With a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, Master’s degree in Organizational Leadership, and experience as a yoga and mindfulness teacher, I saw how my unique experience and education could illuminate a new pathway for companies to create more awareness and inclusion in their teams. I now teach teams leadership and communication skills that are thoughtfully designed to support equity for and inclusion of neurodivergent and invisibly disabled employees. Through this work, all team members, from neurotypical to neurodiverse, benefit from improved culture, productivity, and retention.
