Synergos is a global non-profit organization solving complex issues around the world by advancing Bridging Leadership, a style of leadership that builds trust and collective action. Our experience over the last 35 years tells us that collaboration releases more and better solutions than working alone.
Together with partners in more than 30 countries, Synergos focuses on transforming how people across sectors and divides come together, develop a deeper understanding, create a shared vision, and take collective action to solve deeply entrenched societal problems. Our model can be applied to many areas of social change and especially with networks of philanthropists and civil society leaders.
Bridging Leadership represents a paradigm shift in leadership: a movement away from hierarchy, control, and fear toward more inclusive forms of problem-solving; from a world in which power is monopolized to one in which power is shared, enabling more effective interventions and longer-lasting impact. With changes wrought by the pandemic, social justice movements, and distrust of authority, we believe now is the time when our model can bring about sustained change.
