Leading High Performing Autism

Gifted employees with autism have specific talents for the organization; extensive knowledge, focus and concentration, an eye for detail, analytical ability and thoroughness. With this course you will utilize the specific autistic related talents in the organization better.

Many talented autistic employees become blocked either because of unclear assignments or unexpected changes. They are underestimated in their learning ability and intelligence, but overestimated in their ability to take up tasks, and plan, deal with social contact & deadlines. How do you find the right way to lead these people?
