History tells us that all the great movements for change have one thing in common. The abolitionists, women’s suffrage, civil rights, human rights, equal rights – they all had great leadership.
The world is blessed with inspirational leaders who have dedicated their lives to protecting the societies they serve. They are already a powerful force for good. By investing in these leaders, and giving them the skills to be at their extraordinary best, we can move further, faster towards a more peaceful, fairer and more prosperous society.
Our action plan for peaceful and inclusive societies
Solving seemingly impossible problems requires looking at them in a new way. In challenging contexts, views can become entrenched and loyalties fixed. The skilled facilitators from The Bridge Institute help leaders break the deadlock. Through courageous conversations we help them shift from apathy, anger, criticism or violence towards empathy, compassion and collaboration.
Often seemingly impossible problems are approached in silos – remarkable people trying to address part of the puzzle without coming together. But we live up to our name, building a bridge between political, civil and youth leaders. At the invitation of governments, NGOs, businesses, we identify the right people to solve a particular problem and give them the leadership skills to tackle it together.
For years, corporates have understood the importance of asking outsiders to look at their business. These advisers are independent and impartial; they challenge conventional thinking. Through The Bridge Institute we do the same for those on the front line of the world’s impossible problems.
We, at The Bridge Institute, believe we collectively have the power to shape a more peaceful and prosperous society.
