The Leader as a Cultural Bridger
Rosen (2003) argues:
Cultural bridgers are true integrators. They get excited seeing similarities and differences among people. Accepting that others may have different values than their own, they look for ways to discover those differences, destroy the walls between them, and celebrate their commonalities. They connect on some things and extract lessons from what’s different, always using the differences to build sturdier bridges. (pp. 174-175)
