Bridge Builders

There’s an old saying that goes, “A great leader doesn’t create followers; they create more leaders.” We love this concept. During a recent workshop, one participant introduced themselves as a ‘bridge builder’. This term she used was describing her ability to seamlessly bridge the logical and analytical aspects of business with the human element. It involves engaging with people, understanding their needs, and ensuring the necessary technological support is in place so that people and technology work together, not against each other.


Consider leadership through the lens of bridge building. Leaders aren’t just individuals who inspire, lead and motivate teams; they are connectors who unite team members ideas, opportunities and unlock human potential.


In a world where building authentic relationships hold greater significance than ever before, developing the qualities of a bridge leader can prove to be an influential approach because...


A bridge builder doesn’t merely assume the role of a leader; they facilitate meaningful conversations and create opportunities.


A bridge builder doesn’t impose a predefined path forward, instead they foster collaboration and respect diverse perspectives.


A bridge builder doesn’t suppress creativity, they encourage vibrant and innovative discussions that lead to effective problem solving.
