Neurodiverse leadership - ADHD cheat sheet

Embracing Neurodiversity: A Cheat sheet taking you from understanding to celebrating.

Within the dynamic fabric of the modern workplace, diversity and inclusion aren't just ideals; they form the bedrock of innovative progress, sparking a tapestry of fresh ideas and perspectives. Today, we’re inviting you to join us for an exploration of neurodiversity—a journey that goes beyond recognition to true celebration.

At the start of this venture, we’re providing a powerful resource: the "ADHD Cheat Sheet" curated by our mischievous founder Emily Hinks. In 2022, she was featured among the Top 50 most influential Neurodiverse Leaders, so without further ado…


The cheat sheet is a curation of resources to understand, work with and empower neurodiversity in teams. Based on Emily's personal experiences navigating ADHD and dyslexia, it was prompted and crafted as part of our collaboration with Spotify around ‘Neurodiverse Leadership’. Enjoy this treasure trove of wisdom, and window into the untapped potential of unique minds.
