BRIDGING  LEADERS  PROGRAM

The Signature Service of Bridges Global

VISION

This six-month transformative learning platform develops powerful leadership in order to effectively address complex challenges in organizations and in communities.

OBJECTIVES

  • To empower leaders to be effective in producing positive results
  • To evolve and capacitate organizations in dealing with complexity
  • To create a community that collaborates in solution-finding

POSSIBLE RESULTS

Every program is customized to the desired results, audience and context of the sponsor.   Possible result areas include environmental stewardship, climate action, conflict prevention, gender equality, women’s, youth and First Nations empowerment, improved waste management, food security, affordable housing and poverty reduction.

PURPOSE

Responding effectively to complex issues requires a different level of consciousness.  To shift unworkable systems, old silos need to be replaced by collaborative bridges with other stakeholders.  Otherwise, we keep doing the same things and get the same results.   This is the time to invest in a capacity-building effort designed to unleash human potential and impact all levels – individual, organizational and community.

An inside-out transformative leadership approach is the sustainable means to any worthwhile end.  Enlightened leadership and collaborative partnerships are foundational to co-creating workplaces and a world we want to live in.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

This learning by doing leadership program draws on the power of the collective.  Change-makers practice new skills and behaviours that catalyze teams in achieving results – benefiting their organizations and communities.

Leaders design and implement innovation projects to move their commitment into action.  In so doing, leaders work together to access the courage to shift systems with game-changing ideas. Ongoing coaching provides the support needed to generate real results.

PARTICIPANTS

We bring together 45-55 influence leaders to participate in three 2-4 day workshops, scheduled over six months. The group consists of 4-6 participants from 8-10 organizations.  Alternatively,  the group may include different departmental teams from one organization.  For community impact, multiple sectors are engaged; government, academia, business, labor, UN, media, arts, youth, indigenous leaders and civil society.
