Coaching for employers
Support is provided to companies and organisations. This includes individual coaching for line managers as well as training for teams on awareness of Autism and ADHD.
Coaching for staff managers
Working in conjunction with the individual manager, a coaching plan will be developed which will include short and long term goals. Greater understanding of ASD/ADHD will support the manager to provide the right support for their employee in areas such as:.
Improving communication skills to enhance performance and social integration
Management of performance, planning, organisation, and effective supervision
Understanding the current law and how to make reasonable adjustments to support your employee where necessary
Training for team members
Employment support can provide bespoke training packages to meet an organisation’s objectives. Clear, practical training to increase understanding of ASD and ADHD can be provided, from a ‘lunch and learn’ workshop to a full days training session. The unique strengths and abilities that people on the autistic spectrum can bring to an organisation will be explored as well as strategies to help manage and support any challenges staff might face.
Services can be provided either in the workplace, via video conferencing or by phone.
