Episode 67: Tracy Winter
Neurodiversity & Leadership
Hello, Third Way community! Please join my partner, Virginia, and me for a LinkedIn Live on 11/11 where we will be hosting a forum on business leaders and social change, as well as announcing the launch of a new kind of coaching practice, called Massive.
Every time I have a guest on the podcast, I think, “Damn. I know a lot of smart people!” Such is the case with my great friend Tracy Winter, Ph.D. After working in a variety of fields and industries, Tracy became a self-proclaimed, brilliantly named “Nerd Coach”. She works with neurodiverse leaders - most often in large organizations like Tesla.
The topic of our visit was “Neurodiversity and Leadership” - with an emphasis on ADHD. Tracy and I both answered these questions:
How do ADHDers lead differently than neurotypical leaders?
What are some of the challenges that ADHDers face as leaders? (Extrinsically, intrinsically and systemically)
What can we do to better prepare younger ADHDers to become leaders?
