Helping your neurodivergent individuals thrive in the workplace with specialist career coaching
Do you want to get the most out of your neurodivergent employees and help them reach their potential? Our specialist career coaching can help you do that.
Our workplace career coaching can often be funded through an Access to Work grant, which helps employers fund the cost of supporting their neurodivergent employees.
We specialise in bridging the gap between employees and line managers, while providing your employees with a safe and confidential space to talk.
All our coaches have experience supporting neurodivergent employees, and in a wide variety of industries, from advertising to financial services.
How our coaches can help your employees
Line manager communication
We can facilitate conversations between an employee and a line manager to facilitate the relationship and help them support the individual.
Executive function skills
We can help employees improve their executive function skills. For example their organisation, time management and task management.
Advice obtaining reasonable adjustments
We can help employees and line managers understand, access and gain reasonable adjustments and support through Access to Work.
Work events and socials
We can help your employees understand and navigate work events, such as client meetings, social events and networking events.
Understanding their role and the company
We can help employees properly understand their role and the company they work in, to ensure they're meeting their goals and working to their potential.
We can help employees effectively communicate with their manager, team and other colleagues both remotely and in the workplace.
We can help employees improve their meeting skills, so they can contribute and run their own meetings, both remotely and in the office.
Managing stress and anxiety
We can help employees learn to manage stress and anxiety in the workplace, and develop strategies to support you with this.
Building professional relationships
We can help individuals understand how you can build those all important professional relationships, with both your colleagues, clients and others.
Help them progress and obtain promotions
We can help employees develop strategies to progress, improve at their role and achieve promotions when they are ready.
How it works
Our workplace coaching is currently completely virtual, and is hosted through zoom or a phone call.
Coaching is typically a short to medium term measure to support a neurodivergent employee and typically lasts 6-10 weeks (1 hour session per week).
All an employer would need to do is get in touch with us. We could then match your employee to a specialist coach and arrange the first session once confirmed.
Every coaching journey starts with a 30 minute introductory call with the individual to understand and get to know them better. If helpful, a manager or colleagues can join the call.
The first session involves setting goals and setting a plan for the sessions going forward. Our coach will then work with the individual to develop an action plan to help achieve these goals.
The sessions will continue over a 6-10 week period. Our coach will check in with the individual every week and provide specialist support and resources.
The Enna team are here to help employers and employees after the coaching sessions, to support where necessary, and are easily reachable through email.
"I would just like to thank you very much for the effort and resources you have invested to get my social skills, confidence, and interview approach up to a standard that is proudly and naturally presentable in interviews. My CV has also been subject to real improvement, courtesy of your suggestions, and is now one of my best and favourite documents that I can show anyone; from employment, education or otherwise."
"Thank you to everyone at Enna for all your help. Today I have been offered my dream job, I am so excited and definitely couldn't have done it without your help. I will definitely recommend Enna to other autistic people looking for work. Thanks so much!!"
