#48: Why Creating Safe Spaces for NeuroDivergence is Business Critical

Have you ever considered who created the rules for what is normal?? I mean, is there such a thing? Yet we go through life trying to measure up to the norms that someone else has set and wonder why we don’t feel like we don’t fit!  Well, in today’s shorty episode of Finding the Upside, I am sharing the revelations I had during the filming of an upcoming episode with Pasha Marlowe. During our discussion on neurodiversity, we explored how this affects employee retention and turnover if companies don’t create an inclusive workplace. Specifically, why business owners and business leaders NEED to create environments that foster acceptance and understanding for all, including neurodivergent individuals. Tune in to get a sneak peek at the insights discovered during this incredible conversation!
