Powered by Purpose

In organisations around the world, the pressure is on. Whether this is increasing consumer expectations, widening inequality or the growing disillusionment with globalization, the need to stay viable is greater than ever. The lauded leadership styles that were finely adapted to our past reality will not carry us forward.


Make the difference
you want to see.

Powered by Purpose outlines the four core leadership capacities that you need to help you feel alive at work, lead an enthusiastic team and generate competitive advantage: 

  1. Cultivate Leadership Presence - how you can act in a way that others are inspired to follow 
  2. Make Dialogue Authentic - how to talk about what matters most including people’s long term wellbeing 
  3. Engage your Stakeholders - how to articulate your purpose in a way that engages and energises people 
  4. Connect on Purpose - how to embody purpose so that it becomes part of your corporate DNA and day-to-day decision making 

Powered by Purpose has a foreword by Paul Polman (former CEO Unilever and Co-founder and Chair IMAGINE) and an Epilogue by Dr Victoria Hurth 

Powered by Purpose will help you make the difference you want to see in the world.               

“The world needs organisations to do good whilst making profit. Powered by Purpose is a practical guide for leading an organisation that fulfils both of these needs”

A bit about the Author

Sarah Rozenthuler founded Bridgework in 2007 to strengthen leadership by engaging and energising people around great work. She is a chartered psychologist, leadership consultant, dialogue coach and author. 

Sarah’s passion for purposeful leadership comes from creating a career she loves after some lost years in her twenties. Having achieved a first class degree in psychology and a position at a global consultancy in psychometrics, she stepped away from the corporate world and into the unknown. After falling on hard times, she spent four years as a street circus performer, juggling fire in the fiestas of Spain, and then hit an all-time low.

Having experienced the pain of being disconnected from her true work, she is now passionate about helping others to become more purposeful in their lives and leadership by having the conversations that matter most.

“Powered by Purpose demystifies the black box of being purpose driven. Sarah combines research, theory and experience into practical and actionable insights for those creating purpose-led teams and organisations.”
