What is having ADHD like? And how do software development teams resemble people with ADHD?
Tom Klaasen invited Dietrich to speak about ADHD and development teams in the SoftwareCaptains podcast. We’ve explored what it is to have ADHD, why a typical software development team resembles people with ADHD, and what approach managers can take to improve the well-being of neurodivergent people in a group and teams as a whole.
The podcast episode is in Dutch and available on YouTube and other podcast channels (search for “SoftwareCaptains”).
Dietrich’s talk “ADHDeveloper”, mentioned in the episode, is available for booking.
Dietrich is a software engineering expert turned neurodiversity consultant and trainer. He learnt the power of psychological safety and limiting cognitive load while leading software development teams, gradually discovering the values for his own ADHD and autistic brain. Today, he helps leaders and HR professionals to let their teams thrive with neurodiversity. — More about Dietrich
