Position Announcement
Marketing Consultant, Bridging Leadership

Bridging leadership is the capacity to build trust and tap the fullest contributions of diverse stakeholders, helping them come together across divides and work as partners.

The Synergos approach is to cultivate bridging leadership: the ability to build trust.

Bridging leadership is a style of leadership practiced by both individuals and organizations that is effective for building trust and collaboration among diverse stakeholders to address systemic challenges.

Bridging leadership requires inner work to increase self-awareness, skills for social issue analysis such as systems thinking, and a high capacity for collaboration.

For 30 years Synergos has both integrated bridging leadership into all of its programs, and helped train others to use and to teach bridging leadership skills.

Synergos offers bridging leadership training that takes the participant through a series of interconnected steps, beginning with ownership and personal mastery of the issues to the creation of a collective vision and joint action to overcome obstacles and challenges. This process develops and enhances the capacity of leaders to be more resilient, think systemically and proactively collaborate.
