What you will learn:

Have you ever found yourself frustratingly typing “per my last email” in an office or family communication? Visual information processing isn’t everybody’s forte, a quick call could make a world of difference, or how about sending a video or voice message? We have the technology!!

In this Elective on Neurodiversity, Graham Hulbert will guide learners to reframe their definition of intelligence. Learners will develop a deeper understanding of neurodiversity, and dive into the development of our unique and wonderful brains through facts and personal stories. Learners will discover the strengths and challenges of being neurodivergent in the workplace, and how a neurodivergent brain works differently. Graham will propose a way to understand how a ‘difference in wiring’ can result in the vast diversity of thinking and feeling on the spectrum of neurodiversity.

This Elective will enable people not only to be better coworkers, managers, and leaders, but also better friends, parents, and community members. Learners will leave this Elective with the skills and understanding that will enable them to empathetically connect with, and bring out the best in, their inevitably neurodiverse teams and communities.

About the instructor:

Graham Hulbert is a Enginerd, Naturalist, Maker, and a Poet. He has made a career for himself leading large scale strategic transformations within a corporate environment. More recently his curious mind, passion for continuous improvement and experience in the field of change management have been aimed towards making the corporate environment more neuroinclusive.

Graham was diagnosed with dyslexia at age 7, and whisked off to boarding school at age 9. What young Graham didn't know what that he was more than dyslexic. He was wonderful, autistic and had ADHD! The privilege of his education, combined with often feeling alone, misunderstood and broken (as young Graham learned to interpret his undiagnosed autism), has turned Graham into a compassionate/passionate advocate for Neuroinclusion.

Whilst growing up, Graham often turned to nature for a sense of belonging. His love of the natural world is still strong today and you will often see it pop up in the imagery and analogies he uses in his training.

In Portland Oregon, where Graham calls home, he fulfills his drive for multiple 'special interests' by serving on the board for a local community science non-profit, and by volunteering for the forest service as a predator tracker, plus a trail steward with the Pacific Crest Trail Association, leading teams into the cascade mountains to restore and maintain the Pacific Crest Trail and its many access routes. When he isn't in the mountains he can be found engaged with a client in his consulting work, or there is also his workshop where he spends time restoring classic cars, fabricating furniture, and/or crafting leather goods for his small Etsy shop.. oh boy where does it end?
