I was approached by the Burton and Lichfield Chamber of Commerce to write a blog about Autism in the Workplace.

The blog’s purpose is to provide businesses a brief insight into the autistic condition and the relevance of this within a working environment. Autism is considered as a disability under the Equality Act 2010 and as such reasonable adjustments must be made in order to comply with this legislation.

Without a detailed understanding of the specific requirements of each autistic individual and the skills required to effectively communicate with autistic people, then full compliance with the Equality Act 2010 may be difficult to achieve.

Please read the full article on the Greater Birmingham Chamber of Commerce website.

“Andrew created a safe space for me to explore a very challenging situation for which I needed a way forward.

He provided good open questions, a balanced challenge which made me think deeply but constructively about key aspects of my circumstances and helped me identify some blind spots that were a barrier to moving forward.

I am sure that this is one of the most productive hours I have spent in conversation in recent years, with some actions to follow. Thanks Andrew; great job!!”

Tracey managed Andrew directly. February 5, 2021.

“I know Andrew through the coaching network, Reach for the Moon, where he is a regular contributor to our discussions about all aspects of coaching.

Andrew has a really unique style as a coach which undoubtedly stems from his engineering and military experience. I really appreciate his structured input which helps to ground our discussions. He is clearly very knowledgeable about his practice and also about the positive impact that coaching can have with regard to neurodiversity. His ability to cross the boundaries of engineering, coaching and different ways of thinking is really helpful to our coaching network.

If you are looking for a coach who offers a structured approach with a clear focus on outcomes and results, I would highly recommend contacting Andrew.”

Lesley Butlin, Psychotherapist, Supervisor, Mindset Coach, and Trainer Co-Facilitator of Reach for the Moon – Network for Coaches

Andrew was a client of Lesley’s. February 8, 2021.

“Andrew has attended several of our Reach for the Moon Network for Coaches events. He is open, honest and shows integrity when discussing the issues that arise in his coaching practice.

Andrew is a pleasure to have in our groups, bringing a wealth of experience, knowledge and skill from other areas of his working life.

I thoroughly recommend you contact Andrew, to discuss how he can coach you to deal with the issues you want to address.”

Kamal Hanif OBE, CEO at Waverley Education Foundation

Kamal was a client of Andrew’s. February 8, 2021.

“The coaching sessions have helped me to deal with very complex staffing issues and matters, and helped me to frame how to deal with the issues. Decluttering mentally and being focussed on resolving and finding solutions. Creating a structure and timeline to enable the progress of the organisation and bringing on trustees in supporting the decisions that need to be made and their role within processes.

All this has helped in resolving matters to enable me to lead more effectively and move the trust forward and now begin to finalise structures and systems to enable both running of the trust. It has also enabled me to seriously consider my own well-being and looking at my own workalike balance in what I wish to achieve and the balance for the future.

Thank you for all your support in helping me to find the solutions and having the headspace to do so.”

Sally Pepper interviews Andrew Warneken

Listen to the full show here

Sally Pepper:

A Derby man living with autism is urging people to support those with the condition as we head back to work and a sense of normality. Andrew [Warneken 00:00:10] says, going back to the office means you could be sitting at a different desk and be following a complete change of routine to the one you’ve had whilst working from home. Heading to the shops and wearing a mask can also cause distress for those living with the condition. So what can we do to help?

Sally Pepper:

Well, Andrew joins me now. Andrew, good morning.

Andrew Warneken:

Good morning.
