If you are a team leader who understands that developing diverse, highly effective teams is the key to accelerating success, connect with Meghan Bonde, whose current focus is learning and development “for all kinds of minds.”
Meghan, is an organizational neurodiversity specialist, a Tedx speaker, and a transformational learning facilitator. She designs learning and development systems to optimize the performance of teams and leverage the diverse strengths of each person. Through her unique, collaborative "grow interviews,” she uncovers strengths to build on, needs to support, and barriers in the systems preventing the team from reaching its potential. Her approach invites creative problem-solving, to create inclusive teams and systems in which everyone grows and thrives at work.
After many years working as an educational leader cultivating high performing teams, co-creating inclusive systems, strategic planning, and facilitating transformational learning for educators and leaders, she discovered that she was neurodivergent. She decided to create an organization that leverages her unique strengths and meets her needs. Now she utilizes her vast knowledge about neurodiversity and leadership experience to partner with organizations to help them create learning and development systems designed to the edges so that all employees thrive.
Meghan holds a Master's in Speech Language and Hearing Sciences from the University of Colorado at Boulder, and a Bachelor’s in Psychology with a minor in Spanish from the College of Saint Benedict in Minnesota. She is a bilingual Speech Language Pathologist who specializes in Giftedness, Autism, ADHD, social communication, executive function, assistive technology, and learning differences. Her Educational Specialist degree (Ed. S) is in educational leadership,
from the University of Northern Colorado. While studying abroad in Vina del Mar, Chile, Meghan lived with a family and went to the local university to learn about Spanish and Chilean culture.
What I’ve learned: “Trust is when you can admit that you don't know something or aren't perfect and know that you won't be judged. You can let go and allow each person to do their role and the relationship will survive and improve with challenges and mistakes.”
What I love: “I absolutely love to dance, especially to pop and hip hop music. I am part of a dance group called FAMJAM and I recently appeared in my first music video for a band called the Elektric Animals. I also have dance parties at home with my family sometimes and go to Denver Dance Tribe events, which give me the opportunity to dance to 90's music before my bedtime with a DJ.”
