Diversity & Inclusion

Global DISC ™ supports organisations to develop more nuanced diversity & inclusion practices, ensuring that diverse employees feel valued, happy and yield the greatest return.

Diversity Global DISC

Diversity & Inclusion means respecting and appreciating differences between people, such as ethnicity, gender, age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, education, or religion. It is all about the needs of individuals or groups, ensuring that everyone feels being valued, respected, supported and listened to while achieving their full potential.

In today’s globalised business world, diversity & inclusion are more than just buzz words. Leaders need to understand how to address their employees’ diverse backgrounds so that everyone is able to give their best efforts to the organisation’s benefit.

When companies are scaling up quickly, diversity can easily turn into a liability if arising challenges of working across personalities, borders, cultures, and languages are not overcome.

Only if diverse organisations are able to leverage differences – which directly affect communication, work style, trust and relationship building, understanding of processes, hierarchies and management styles – will they find their way of working together smoothly and reap the benefits of diversity.

If all sides stick to their accustomed way of working though, results will fall short of expectations while tensions rise.

“Diversity is the greatest asset or liability. Ignoring their cultural and personal differences in a multicultural world destroys performance, leveraging them makes organisations profitable and sustainable. Solutions created before globalisation are not designed to address the people challenges of the 21st century, that is what Global DISC™ was created for. It is the ideal solution to create an inclusive environment supported by measurable and repeatable results."

How To Increase Diversity & Inclusion In Your Organisation

In today’s globalised business world, companies recruit the best talent worldwide but are often struggling to make their diverse teams work well together. With Global DISC ™ corporate solution you can measure an organisation’s cognitive diversity, the deeper layers of diversity that are making or breaking diverse teams. Global DISC ™ is the perfect basis for a successful diversity & inclusion development program.

Cultural Intelligence

The Global DISC ™ assessment and development tool introduces cultural intelligence. Cultural intelligence is all about changing perspectives, to understand the logic of why people think and act differently. Culturally intelligent people are leveraging differences to find new ways of working together and solving problems, which significantly increases engagement and the overall outcome.

Personal Awareness

Each employee receives an Individual Global DISC ™ Report to deepen self-awareness. People gain insight into their preferences and tendencies at work based on their personality type and cultural background. They learn more about relating to others and receive actionable strategies to improve their interactions when working within diverse teams or with global business partners.

Mindset & Cultural Gaps

Global DISC ™ Group Reports show a team’s or department's cognitive diversity index and reveal their blind spots. The more significant a gap, the more potential a group or department has for success or failure, depending on how they turn differences into synergy after suitable team coaching and training.

Transparence & Psychological Safety

Leaders and team members can be provided with a Global DISC ™ Fast Teaming Passport, showing each team member’s personal and cultural preferences when working together. The goal is to reduce assumptions, misunderstandings and significantly improve communication and psychological safety within the team.

Improved Team Leadership

Global DISC ™ supports leaders who work in diverse organisations. Leaders quickly understand the needs and priorities of their diverse employees while being aware of their tendencies and values when leading others. Successful leaders develop a high level of cultural intelligence, which equals their ability to manage and serve people from different cultural backgrounds.
