Business is all about how people interact and work together to achieve defined objectives. By understanding people’s cognitive diversity, Aspiedent can assist in helping businesses achieve their objectives through applying the Integrative Cognitive Diversity Framework (ICDF).
For example, you could recruit to an existing job spec, or you could analyse the cognitive diversity within the team to identify any gaps that would enhance the team’s ability to achieve it’s goals, and recruit to fill that gap in cognitive diversity. Identifying that gap is what Aspiedent can help with.
Or you may have some staff who think differently and who bring different perspectives to the team, but who are feeling that their contributions are ignored. Aspiedent can work out what is going on and design training for the team to ensure that everyone feels able to contribute.
Or alternatively, there may be some business software that you would like all employees to use, but are finding that some employees are reluctant or even refusing to use it. We can figure out what is going on and recommend solutions.
To solve all these problems and more, we use the Integrative Cognitive Profiling Framework, which enables us to work out the cognitive diversity within your team, identify gaps and provide solutions when staff are reluctant to use business software.

Our Workplace Assessments are designed to help managers and staff in the workplace understand each other better and/or resolve their differences.
The key differences in our approach are:
- We are able to analyse beyond the symptoms and identify the underlying issues that cause them.
- We analyse the interactions between the various underlying issues.
- We are just as interested in strengths as we are in weaknesses because we build a complete picture of the cognitive make-up of an individual.
Similar symptoms can be caused by different underlying issues and this often leads to ineffective recommended reasonable adjustments. An in depth analysis of your employee’s cognitive make-up is required to get to the bottom of the issues, that you as an employer are experiencing. Aspiedent’s reasonable adjustments are tailored to the specific difficulties of an individual and not to the symptoms nor to the diagnosis, if there is one.
A workplace assessment is often life-changing for your employee as they understand themselves better and how they are different from those around them.This can be further explored via 1-1 training and mentoring sessions with Dr Elizabeth Guest.
During a workplace assessment the aim will be to develop a deep understanding of the following:
- The context and requirements of the job role for which the individual is employed.
- The context of the difficulties and expectations from the managers’ perspective.
- An in depth understanding of the individual, their experiences, how they think and experience the world and the context and understanding they have regarding their work and the challenges they experience.
By taking this in depth approach Aspiedent performs a thorough analysis of your employee’s cognitive make-up, and provides a report that will not only explain what is happening and recommend reasonable adjustments but will also tell you ‘WHY’ issues are occurring and ‘WHY’ the reasonable adjustments will work.
Sometimes what we recommend for a particular employee is seen as a valuable adjustment for all employees. We may also recommend further training for other colleagues to help with raising awareness of cognitive diversity and autism, ADHD and related conditions within the workplace and to support you to become more diverse and inclusive.
