Awareness of when a team needs training is not an exact science

I did some training with staff who work for the charity Practical Action, to raise greater awareness around some challenges being experienced working in a Neurodiverse team.

Most teams experiencing challenges often want to know more about how to create better relationships with their Neurodivergent colleagues. There is a willingness to be open.

Often training is sought after challenges have arisen in the team and people are feeling misunderstood and frustrated. Working together is then increasingly difficult and people feel isolated and resentful.

As an HR manager or team leader when do you think the optimal time for training is.
A) Before a team begins to work together as part of onboarding and induction or B) After the team have been working together for a while and challenges are starting to appear?
