In praise of the bridge-builders

Bridge builders are the sort of people who can connect dots, as if they see the world as a network board, all lit up with flashing lights, and they can see who needs what and when and where. And they are doing it because the combination of those two things, of bringing those two people together, of passing on that email, of making that introduction, of working to promote that tricky idea to that new audience, will be better for everyone. The thing about the bridge-builder is that they don’t create a temporary connection – they forge a lasting link, a bridge that others can cross in the future, again and again, a connection that turns on a light that will help lots of people see something more clearly.
