Korean Edition: 행 동 하 는 지 성 과 연 민

Elfenworks Productions announces the Korean-Language Edition of Intelligence & Compassion in Action, The Seven Pillars for Social Entrepreneurs, a book by Lauren Speeth, MBA, DBA, DMin.  

행 동 하 는 지 성 과 연 민
사회적 기업가를 위한 일곱가지 지침서

The book is use by educators domestically and internationally, after printed translations were published in China, and Ukraine  following e-book editions in the Russian and Portuguese  languages. This new Korean language e-book edition, we feel, is very timely.  [store]

Since the launch of the book at Australian National University, this book has garnered a “recommended read” by U.S. Review of Books and a Gold Medal from Living Now Books Award in the social entrepreneurship category, as well as rave international reviews.  Written as a tool to empower the aspiring social entrepreneur, this book offers real guidance as to how, and why, social entrepreneurship really works.  The author is the founder of The Elfenworks Foundation, Dr. Lauren Speeth, who lives the lessons she teaches in this book daily. The insights within these pages have come from Speeth’s years of experience in technology, management, and the nonprofit world, as well as from insights gained in interviews with extraordinary social entrepreneurs.

In the book, Speeth expounds a Seven Pillar methodology, inspired by the wisdom of former President James Earl “Jimmy” Carter.  The methodology can be of help in any cause, from poverty and inequality, to health and safety, or any number of daunting issues. It provides a framework for recognizing vision, focusing actions in ways that play to your strengths, and shepherding resources. It also provides insights into effective partnership, credit-sharing, and measuring for feedback and course correction. Finally, there are helpful suggestions on how to stay the course, for true effectiveness. A seven-part “roadmap for uncharted territories,” clearly explained and practically applied, the book also includes a worksheet for your immediate use in evaluating projects and partners. As an added bonus, Intelligence & Compassion in Action contains supplemental essays exploring great teachings, and their intersection with the Seven Pillar methodology.


Whether you are just discerning your vision or a CEO looking for practical steps to refresh your organization, you will find in these pages both a source of true inspiration and a plan for creating sustainable change. If applied and used correctly, it will also help you discover for yourself a pathway to joy, which Speeth explains is “the intersection, where your skills and affinities meet with the world’s needs.”
