Tonight’s guests:

Dr. Joni Carley (New Leaders for New Economy), 8:06 to 9:00 p.m.

According to leadership expert and executive coach Dr. Joni Carley, leadership isn’t what it used to be, in part because today’s leaders answer to a different bottom line. The old profit-at-any-cost way of doing business is losing ground to concepts like ‘values-driven leadership’ and Carley says this new way of leading fixes both immediate and long-term problems, produces better profits and share prices, and creates happier, more productive workplaces. She’ll share what’s behind this paradigm shift and why leaders who don’t embrace the change will go the way of the dinosaur. Dr. Joni Carley has worked with United Nations departmental leaders and is featured in “Stepping Stones to Success,” co-authored with Deepak Chopra and Dennis Waitley.

Dr. Joni draws from a unique depth and breadth of experience – ranging from the jungle to the boardroom, from the United Nations to universities, and from coaching and consulting with small business, corporate, and non-profit leaders for over 20 years. She’s a co-author of “Stepping Stones to Success, vol. 1,” w/Deepak Chopra, Jack Canfield & Denis Waitley, a co-founder of the Community Foundation of South Jersey, a Fellow at Global Dialog Institute and she holds a Doctorate in The Reinvention of Work. Dr. Joni offers complimentary MP3′s, articles and e-books on her website:  http://www.leaderfuledge.com

Alana Newman, 9:06 to 10:00 p.m. Website: http://happycoupleworkout.com/

As the millions of us who are struggling to get in better shape know, it’s hard to stay motivated enough to exercise —and even harder to afford expert programs, personal trainers, gym memberships, or home equipment. What if there was a way to actually look forward to workouts instead of dreading them, without spending thousands of dollars?

Alana and Rickard Newman have the solution with the Happy Couple Workout. Together they have developed a series of fun, highly effective exercises that help couples get in shape while they strengthen their relationships.

During the interview you will learn…

• Why working out as a couple is hands-down the most effective way to get in shape.
• The top 3 reasons most couple workouts suck—they require equipment, they don’t account for differences in ability, and they’re boring.
• How you can use your partner as exercise equipment and skip the gym membership or home workout gear.
• 3 ways exercising as a couple improves your relationship and relieves stress.

More Talking Points:

  • What inspired you and your husband to design your own workout for couples?

  • But what if my partner and I have large disparities in our fitness abilities and we can’t do the same things?
  • What if my partner and I like to do different kinds of physical activity?
  • Why should we work out together? Can’t we just rendezvous in the bedroom?
  • How are we supposed to work out when we have to watch over the kids?
  • We’ve got bills and other priorities for our money. Why should I prioritize working out when I have a mortgage and a college fund to save for?

  • What’s your ultimate goal with this workout, do you want to become the next Zumba?
  • Where can we buy a copy at?


David Lapp, 9:30 to 10:00 p.m.

David Lapp is a research associate at the Institute for American Values, and the co-investigator, along with his wife, of the Love and Marriage in Middle America Project, a research project about how working class young adults in one Ohio town form families and view marriage. Based on their interviews with over one hundred young adults, David and his wife are writing a book tentatively titled Love Like Crazy: Looking for Marriage in Middle America.

Talking points:

  • The Love and Marriage in Middle America Project focuses on the marriage and family patterns of young Americans with a high school diploma, but no four-year college degree. Why?
  • What percentage of Americans fall into this category?
  • Are working class young adults who cohabit rejecting marriage altogether? What are they thinking about marriage?
  • How do they think about divorce?
  • Why are so many working class young couples having children before marriage?
  • What are some of the things that are keeping working class couples from getting married?
  • What was one of the most surprising findings about your research?
  • Why are you calling your book Love Like Crazy: Looking for Marriage in Middle America?
  • You’ve written publicly that simply encouraging cohabiting young adults to get married, and telling them about the benefits of marriage, is an insufficient response to the crisis of marriage in working class America. Why?
  • What can be done to strengthen marriage in working class America?
