About the BlueRio Institute and Think BlueRio


(If you would like to go directly to the course list page, click this link.)

As the founder (and a Social Entrepreneur), I have dreamed for many years of another way to engage like-minded professionals in order to make deep impact on the community we live in. “Sage Solutions for Social Impact.” This developed into a collaborative, a way to pool talents and resources to help our community. It was initially designed as a future Think Tank and Collaboration Portal. The first cause was focused on the reintegration of military veterans into the civilian sector. We moved into resilience in general, offering affordable, innovative training and coach training programs.

At this time the think tank and collaboration portal has been put on hold so that we may focus on delivering quality programs and delving deeper into research that supports the solutions we offer. In the next few months you will notice a tranformation of our brand as well. We will now be Think BlueRio and the BlueRio Institute.

We will continue our work in personal and professional development and will offer services that fall under the categories of:

  • Transformations Through Coaching
  • Transformations Through Training
  • Transformations Through Workshops, Retreats and Speaking Engagements
  • Transformations Through Thought-Leadership and Research
  • Social Impact Projects and Community-Type Transformation

Even as our name changes and soon a new site will be developed, we will continue to offer affordable, innovative training with a unique blend of strategy, methods and empathy while at the same time begin to highlight the talents of the Founder, Jessi LaCosta as she engages in more on-site training and Keynote presentations AND begin to spotlight other talented coaches and consultants. Please stay tuned.

Most presentations are either 1 – 3 day workshops and/or are  BCC-Approved programs, offering compassionate and sound solutions for human development, leadership and organization effectiveness.

BlueRio and others in the Collaborative support nonprofits, academic programs, social entrepreneurs & social enterprises among others. Many of our current and future partners and contributors offer solutions that are grounded in relational neuroscience, IPNB, organization development and the belief that a more civil, compassionate world can also produce effective, successful, creative and strategic systems and people.

BlueRio’s Collaborative believes in strategic, yet mindful and caring tools to help others succeed. You can join our discussion in our linkedin group by visiting this link.
