Top Stream’s Story
“I moved from a senior clinical and managerial role in the NHS – one of the world’s largest organisations – into Executive Coaching because I was interested in how people experienced their working lives and relationships. I was also curious about applying my knowledge where there was no need for people to have a diagnosis. Most of my clinical experience has been with children and families so I know a lot about how brains that develop differently impact on behaviour, performance and relationships.
There was one group of young people where my usual tactics needed to be applied in different ways– these were often very bright, gifted children who, while academically very talented, found other people and the world difficult to manage. Many of these young people had Asperger’s Syndrome, a form of high functioning autism. Some did not have a diagnosis but had many of the features so we would work with them using the same strategies. We worked with the young people themselves and concurrently with those around them – schools and parents – to get the best outcomes.
As I listened to the stories told by businesses, consultants and coaches about the very real challenges they faced with getting the best from brilliant people, it occurred to me that many of the strategies that have come out of research with people who have Asperger’s might be very useful for those with similar characteristics. So I decided to set up Top Stream”
