Leading on the Spectrum: Life from a Different Perspective

“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change” – Dr Wayne Dyer.

Perspective is powerful as it brings understanding, insight and wisdom. Humans can learn a lot from each other when we are willing to see life from someone else’s perspective.

Being able to LEAD and LIVE well with any neurodiverse or mental health challenges takes courage and environments where we celebrate each other’s differences and see life through each other’s perspective. It reminds us to be kind as we learn, lead and do life with each other.

Join Minds & Hearts, one of Australia’s leading clinics and clinicians in this space, with Dr David Zimmerman and Dr Wesley Turner as we explore how neuroscience and accepting our ‘wiring’ is a dynamic way to integrate our differences and celebrate how uniqueness can unite us.

Following the presentation from Minds & Hearts, we’ll be doing a Q&A Session with school counsellors that sit in the learning enrichment space.

This is a Learning Table workshop. The workshop will run from 9:30AM – 11:30AM, with light refreshments and networking from 11:30AM – 12:00PM.
