Getting along in the workplace has never been more challenging than it is today.​

At Near Bridge, we understand why and help you solve this problem.

Today’s workforce is the most diverse in history!

This diversity opens the door to so much conflict!

But also, to so much opportunity.

Our 15+ years of research shows that the biggest diversity challenges in today’s workplace come from generational differences and the inability of organizations to effectively collaborate and lead across all diversity dimensions.

However, if you understand and leverage the gifts that diversity brings,it can become your organization’s biggest competitive advantage!

Delighted Clients

We help our clients achieve this competitive advantage by helping them reduce generational conflict, improve collaboration, and develop leadership at all levels.

Hi, I’m Ken Beller

CEO of Near Bridge and ​Co-author of
The Consistent Consumer and Great Peacemakers

After being a rocket scientist for NASA, and living and working in 20 countries managing global high tech businesses, I discovered technology is not the key to organizational success… people are!

After 15+ years researching generations, collaboration, and leadership—basically, how to help people get along better—I’ve discovered powerful insights that can transform workplaces.​

I love sharing these insights through my keynote speeches and workshops and can’t wait to share them with you!

The Consistent Consumer

Predicting future behavior through lasting values
By Ken Beller, Steve Weiss, and Louis Patler

Examines the formative history and deep-seated core values that drive six distinct generations present in American society today.

The advantage you’ll gain from reading The Consistent Consumer is knowledge of the future – because one of the best predictors of the future is the values we hold. This is one of the most important books on customers to come out in years.
