HOW DYSLEXIC THINKING GIVES ENTREPRENEURS A COMPETITIVE EDGE
"The world has come a long way in how it views dyslexia, no longer seeing it as an impairment but instead recognizing it as a different way of thinking, which has proven to be an asset in the business world.
“Dyslexic thinking has been driving businesses for decades,” says Kate Griggs, CEO and founder of global charity Made By Dyslexia. “Dyslexic thinkers have soft or power skills like creative thinking, problem-solving, communication, people and team building, all of which are vital for building and running successful businesses.” Research carried out by Julie Logan, professor of entrepreneurship at Cass Business School, found that 35% of U.S. company founders identified themselves as dyslexic, compared with 15% in the general population."

AI AGGREGATES, BUT DYSLEXIA INNOVATES
"As the film shows, AI can’t replace the soft skills that index high in dyslexics - such as innovating, lateral thinking, complex problem solving, and communicating. If you ask AI for advice on how to scale a brand that has a record company – it offers valuable insights, but the solution lacks creative instinct and spontaneous decision making. If I hadn’t relied on my intuition, lateral thinking and willingness to take a risk, I would have never jumped from scaling a record company to launching an airline – which was a move that scaled Virgin into the brand it is today.
Together, dyslexic thinkers and AI are an unstoppable force, so it’s great to see that 72% of dyslexics see AI tools (like ChatGPT) as a vital starting point for their projects and ideas – according to new research by Made By Dyslexia and Randstad Enterprise. With help from AI, dyslexics have limitless power to change the world, but we need everyone to welcome our dyslexic minds. If businesses fail to do this, they risk being left behind." Learn more
