Marriage/Family Guidance from Stephanie Lacy

Marriage/Family Therapist Stephanie Lacy

Late night comedians probably make more jokes about marriage than any other topic. Yet that’s predictable, because habitually we joke about those aspects of life we don’t understand and have difficulty coping with–including death and taxes.

That’s why I hosted Stephanie Lacy, LCSW, LMFT–a Licensed Marriage/Family Therapist–in “The Communication Corner,” my weekly hour-long interview program on WBCX, 89.1 FM, “The Voice of Brenau.” The program airs Tuesday at 9:00 a.m. ET, and Thursdays at 6:00 a.m., streaming live online at http://tinyurl.com/ykvanpm

Stephanie addressed a number of vital topics, including these:

–Reshaping our unrealistic, fairy-tale level expectations about marriage
–How couples should truly listen to each other
–Putting aside our technology devices when they block interpersonal relations
–Adjusting to the changes you and your marriage partners will experience every decade
–Getting through the “empty nest” shock
–Should you tell your mate everything?
–Forgiveness as a process, not a one-time event
–After losing a spouse through death or divorce, how much time should elapse before dating again?

In addition to recommending some beneficial books during the broadcast, Stephanie invites you to select other relationship books from this site:

Debbi Shapiro–Award Winning Small Business Leader

When I read that Debbi Shapiro, President and Owner of Henderson-Shapiro in Roswell, Georgia had been honored as Small Business Person of the Year for 2010–by the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce and the Atlanta Business Chronicle— I invited her to share her business communication strategies in “The Communication Corner,” the weekly interview show I host for WBCX, 89.1 FM, “The Voice of Brenau.” I was delighted when she accepted.

You’ll benefit from hearing us discuss:
–Her company’s unusual way of finding new employees who will be a good fit
–Why teamwork has become more than a platitude at Henderson-Shapiro
–What weekly staff meetings accomplish that keep them worthwhile
–Her tireless dedication to employee concerns, at an hour when most CEOs have “called it a night”
–The company’s dedication to community service
–Employee recognition as an inexpensive yet highly valuable action
–How Debbi continues to improve through “360 self-assessment”

Too, you will hear the high compliments offered by the award committee that selected her from four other outstanding finalists.
