Summary: In this guide, the author, a career development coach and former business executive explains what it takes to succeed in a workplace dominated by neurotypicals. It covers everything from choosing the right career to deciding whether disclosure is the right option. It features realistic strategies for meeting employer expectations and effectively resolving problems. Examples from coaching clients are used to illustrate common employment challenges and how various techniques are applied in actual circumstances. Situations are described from both the Asperger's and neurotypical point of view so that readers understand why problems occur and how to avoid them in the future. The book is designed to be a reference that readers can refer to again and again for guidance on specific job-related topics. The recommendations will benefit individuals who are entering the workforce, as well as those who struggle to maintain employment, or who want to improve their performance and advance their careers.
