You may know someone who is a brilliant data wrangler and works hard, but may need special accommodations or struggles with emotional intelligence. It is quite possible that the person has an autism spectrum disorder, a diagnosis more commonplace over the last decade. In this session, we will look at neurodiverse behavior and empowerment, focusing on the autism spectrum and the data platform. There are qualities which make a person on the spectrum great with data, and pitfalls in relation to job interviews and getting the most from large conferences like PASS Summit. Whether you manage the person, or whether you are the person, there is something to be gained from a recognition on the differences in how one's brain works.
An open mind to understanding the autism spectrum.
