NEURODIVERSE TEAMS

Wired for Innovation:

Neurodiversity for competitive advantage

“We know new ideas come from diverse ways of seeing things,” according to Apple – not a bad role model in the innovation space.

And yet neurodiversity is often put into a box and sidelined, which is ironic when neurodivergent minds are some of the most out-of-the-box thinkers in the workplace.

Here at Cinnamon Letters, we have lived experience of neurodiversity – we are a neurodiverse team. We give talks and lead workshops for innovative companies who seek to leverage the benefits of neurodiversity for competitive advantage. We offer a new outlook on equity, diversity and inclusion, by considering what it really means to build a high-performing team that is neurodiverse.

We also offer in-house consultancy, should you require input that’s unique to your context.
