What is Neurodiversity Coaching for Line Managers?
Line manager coaching is a proactive way to help line managers better support their neurodivergent members of staff.
This coaching aims to provide line managers with the skills and knowledge that will enable them to maximise the potential of their neurodiverse team(s).
In contrast to general neurodiversity awareness training, line manager coaching is specific to the circumstances and individuals that report to them and can explore strategies for effectively managing performance.
