Explore FDP Global’s Impact
LEADING DIVERSE GLOBAL TEAMS
FDP Global gives leaders the tools and mindsets to see and improve interactions between nationalities, cultures, social classes, genders and generations and how these shape work culture, productivity and engagement.
TRANSFORMING MINDSETS & BEHAVIOURS
Since 2007, FDP Global has partnered with organisations in EMEA and APAC regions and beyond. Given the increasing speed and breadth of global business, more leaders manage culturally diverse teams than at any point in human history. Going beyond traditional approaches to diversity, we build leaders’ courage, consciousness and competence to engage employees, spark innovation and improve business performance.
OUR FOCUS: LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT
When insiders at the leadership level help champion inclusion efforts in their companies, those efforts are more successful. We work with company leaders to establish conversations that they haven’t had before. By creating a stimulating and challenging environment, we help people examine hidden mindsets and assumptions and develop their ability to lead and manage effectively.
We define an INSIDER as a leader who is a member of the group that, through the simple coincidence of where they came from and whom they were born to, gets to set the organisation’s norms and rules for how things get done. INSIDERS often don’t realise they set the rules or that others are on the outside. FDP Global helps leaders see the impact of the water they swim in, both on themselves and their outsider colleagues.
LEARNING ABOUT YOUR CULTURE
We begin any engagement by learning about issues your company is experiencing and who will be in the room in terms of languages, culture, presenting issues and relationships. We often work with local partners who understand the geographical insider culture and language nuances. We then perform data collection of relevant issues in that region of the world so we can use local examples during delivery.
Our consultants are experts in engaging people in a series of courageous conversations that have value to the the client.

IMPACT: SEEING YOUR CHANGE EFFORTS TAKE HOLD
Diversity and inclusion must be seen as a critical business strategy; a fundamental component of an organisation’s mission. Like safety policies, a successful diversity and inclusion roadmap does not have an end point. Instead, success is measured by milestones that are ongoing and developmental. FDP Global’s experiential approach inspires leaders to develop their own and others’ competency, which leads to meaningful and lasting change in the workplace. When leaders are curious and ask questions, have the courage to act without having all the answers and display confidence they can make a difference, you will see retention rates increase and morale improve.

“Successful companies and their leaders see diversity and inclusion as a leadership imperative and a critical component of executive development.”
– Bill Proudman, Founder, FDP Global
