President, Falker Consulting Group, Inc., Facilitator
Frederick G. Falker is the President of Falker Consulting Group, Inc., a human resource development training and consulting firm and Director of Workforce Development for the Saint Louis Zoo. He has worked as an organizational development consultant for more than 30 years, helping organizations with performance management, customer service and diversity issues. At the Saint Louis Zoo, he has worked extensively on helping the organization’s efforts to establish itself as one of the best places to work, serve and volunteer in the country.
Chapman & Co. has partnered with Fred as a well-known thought leader and experienced diversity and inclusion consultant. Fred’s work has helped develop a fundamentally different approach that goes beyond unconscious and implicit bias training. Instead of focusing on the differences between people, Fred focuses on the distance between people and the behaviors that drive connection regardless of the demographic makeup of your team, department, or organization.
Fred is also currently working on a book detailing this fundamentally new approach to thinking about diversity and inclusion titled, Seeing the Box: Improving Interpersonal Effectiveness.
A few of the organizations Fred has served are BJC Health System, SSM Health System, Bethesda Health System, Miles Laboratories, Boeing, Johnson and Johnson, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Commerce Bank, Ralston Purina, Donald C. Cook Nuclear Plant, Saint Louis Zoo and U.S. Department of Education.
