Better Brains for Business
New ideas and innovation in technology, science and engineering have never been more important in the national and global economies.

To a large extent, the people who come up with these crucial ideas do so because they think differently.

Here’s to the crazy ones. The rebels. The troublemakers. The ones who see things differently. While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

What if we could create an environment that helps business get the best out of their top talent by recognising that brains are as different as people?

Neurodiversity is an area of Neuroscience that focuses on how differently wired brains work. It offers practical research-based strategies that sit easily with good management practice to maximise performance from some of the brightest people.

What if we could create an environment that helps business get the best out of their top talent by recognising that brains are as different as people?

We worked with Scientists, Technologists, Engineers and Mathematicians (STEM) to answer questions about Neurodiversity and Emotional Intelligence (EQ), seeking to understand why people with high IQ but low EQ can sometimes underperform within an organisation.

Through interviews with key stakeholders, HR professionals, managers and STEM individuals, we explored their experiences of how personality styles affects workplace behaviours. Our aim was to identify the key challenges faced by organisations, teams, business leaders and STEM individuals themselves.

Our findings answered a number of key questions:

Why do organisations need their STEM employees?

What have organisations already put in place to get the best from STEM talent?

What are the key challenges faced: at an organisational level, when leading and managing STEMs, and for STEMs working within organisations?

Have you addressed these issues in your organisation?
