About Us

Frederica A. Peterson, MA, CPC
DiSC, Leadership and Diversity Expert, Frederica A. Peterson, MA, CPC

There has been a significant shift in talent acquisition and management since the events of 2020. Most of the clients coming to me are seeking to be more "inclusive" in their practices to improve retention and acquisition of the best, brightest and most diverse talent. The best way to do this naturally is to improve overall communications.

Our differences are not in what we see, but in what we don't see. The strongest organizations typically are those that have effective communication skills, DiSC solutions can help you achieve that. If you want your team to be more engaged, motivated, committed and overall execute at a higher level of performance DiSC should be the first strategy you consider. An inclusive culture is only achieved through great communication.

As a leader in the telecom and private services industries for over 25 years I have a proven track record of successfully leading high performing teams and developing high performance leaders. After establishing my boutique consultancy in 2015 I have become a highly sought after and accomplished consultant, coach and facilitator and I have worked with some of the top organizations in the country; CNN, Facebook, Honeywell, NASA, United States Homeland Security, National Basketball Association and Audible just to name a few.

Leveraging my experience with Everything DiSC allows me to bring viable and sustainable solutions to my clients that result in building greater leadership capacity and more highly engaged, results focused teams.

Contact me if you are ready to discover what is possible for your organization utilizing DiSC solutions.

  • Diversity Consulting and Training

    Organizations that embrace diversity, inclusion and equity are on average 32% more profitable that organizations that do not. So why do some organizations struggle in this area? Status Quo. We want to be more inclusive, model diversity and create an environment where everyone's unique self is embraced but we don't want to fix anything that doesn't appear to be broken, right? Especially if it may shift the balance of power.

    I help organizations identify gaps in their infrastructure, assess the current health of the culture and provide guidance and recommendation to build a more inclusive, safe and healthy environment for diversity, equity and inclusion so the organization and it's talent can thrive.
