Breakthrough Solutions: How to Find Them and Make Them Work

Guests: Eleanor LeCain and Madelyn Blair

Eleanor LeCain will discuss, Breakthrough Solutions: How to Improve Your Life and Change the World by Building on What Works, a new book that draws on her 20 years of research and experience with social innovation and a wide network of colleagues with expertise in the best of what’ working in their fields. She is president of The Breakthrough. Way, an organization devoted to building solutions, and she has studied and profiled breakthroughs in green jobs, parenting, health, crime, conflict resolution, philanthropy and poverty. As Executive Director of Blueprint 2000, she was hired by the Massachusetts state government to create a strategic plan for the future that addressed every area of public policy in the state. She was also the Massachusetts Assistant Secretary of State. LeCain served as an adviser to the Kyoto Businessman’s Association in Japan on opportunities in environmental business, and the National Committee on Responsive Philanthropy hired her as a planner to address the field of philanthropy and strategic giving. In 2003, Ms. LeCain designed and led a leadership seminar for women in Afghanistan, sponsored by Eve Ensler and the V-Day Campaign to End Violence Against Women and Girls. She is the founding President of Women of Vision and Action, an international network of spiritually aware women taking action for a better world. Madelyn Blair, PhD, has also developed new solutions—some wise and useful ways of keeping abreast of the rapidly emerging tide of new information. Her recent book, Riding the Current: How to deal with the daily deluge of data suggests ways to focus efforts to manage information, and find people interested in accompanying you on the journey of deciding what to absorb and what to use. Blair is president and founder of Peleri, a consulting firm specializing in organizational development, knowledge management, team building, distance learning and leadership development for numerous international and private organizations, including the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, NIH and American University. She holds a doctorate in organizational psychology from Tilburg University in The Netherlands, an MBA from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, and an honors degree in mathematics from Rutgers university.
