TMSC International® Management & Leadership: Employee Training and Mild Autism: Fair and Equal Hiring Practices

Autism Awareness Ribbon (Puzzle Ribbon) on TMSC International® Management & Leadership

Most individuals have heard of Autism in the serve form. It is diagnosed and treated by Medical professionals. Many are not familiar with milder forms of Autism that are undiagnosed and untreated. Autism is the inability to read social ques, a form of perception.

Perception is forming mental representations of the objects that give rise to sensory experiences.

Intuition is the quick perception of truth without conscious attention or reasoning, that is, known intuitively, truth obtained by internal apprehension without the aid of perception or the reasoning powers.

Each vocation, profession, or field has a set/sect of skills, knowledge, and wisdom required for success. This is a form of intuition. When individuals are in training, no matter what vocation, profession, or field, there is a large amount of information to cover in a specific amount of time. If the employee does  not master this information, most companies give a six month time frame to release individuals from employment.

Even those with high levels of intuition can look mildly autistic when working to keep employment and move up. Great Tip for Employer Trainers: “The Hitler Concept”:

  • Know your training materials
  • Make it short
  • and repeat the information every training session (review)

The Counseling Manager that hired me into the counseling and leadership training fields used this type of concept when training. I learned quickly and became one of the main trainers for line staff and Managers. I don’t think Mrs. Bobbie Traylor would agree with the name I gave the concept, “The Hitler”, an old saying is “God turns the worst evil into good”.
