with a desire to understand, observe, and feel the multi-layered components of every individual within our sphere of influence. This Competence hinges on a commitment to educate oneself on neurodivergent ways of thinking and processing. This commitment also begins with learning our own place on the neuropsychosocial spectrum. NeuroAtypical Competence actively listens and observes on multiple frequencies of the person. It realizes that externals (the way one talks, looks, acts, dresses) are both liars and truth-tellers; they can and will misrepresent the depth, value, potential, and experiences of another.
Our inherent human limitations are predisposed to inevitably mischaracterize and/or misjudge each individual regardless of our sincere effort to fairly assess the neuro-impact of their experiences and how it shaped their person (neuro-intersectionality).
NeuroAtypical Competence reckons every individual, regardless of self-limiting perceptions, is a member of numerous sub-cultures simultaneously. No one person can be relegated to and/or be understood through one lens of their identity. This Competence constrains us to value their experiences and potential as we would our own.
[This requires we see others through a lens of possibilities.]
The existence of a sub-culturally competent milieu is qualified and quantified when an individual's potential and perceptions are realized beyond their own expectations. Three basic components will emerge as a result:
a. Their willingness to self-disclose (feeling safe and accepted).
b. A compassionate assessment and acceptance of their self-disclosure by their listeners.
c. The listener's level of self-awareness, empathy, and honesty regarding the fixed limitations of their own perspectives, are broadened.
Relational disconnects between individuals and departments weaken the business imperative.
