How well do you give people feedback, ask for what you want, or set expectations? If you need help on any of these, today’s show is for you.
Anyone can be a manager, but being a great communicator takes skill, time and practice. From micromanaging to the sandwich feedback method, there’s lots of improvement that can be made if you’re managing anything, which will improve your team/family/partner’s morale and success. Management expert, consultant, and Wharton professor Rachel Pacheco joins us today to talk about the management skills she’s learned–and now teaches–to others. Frequent communication, effective feedback, and setting clear expectations are just a few of the points she discusses with us that you’ll also find in her new book, Bringing Up the Boss.
For our headline, we talk about all of the recent news on the #FreeBritney front, and just how hard it is to regain control from a conservatorship. We’ll start with Britney Spears’ troubles with her developing situation, how she’s trying to set herself free, and the estate planning lessons we can all learn from it. We’ll also throw out the Haven Life line to Frank who is getting a raise at work and wants to know what type of account he should save the additional funds to. And Doug’s trivia is about one of the best shows on television, The Office.
We couldn’t bring you three shows a week without our sponsors!

There was supposed to be a link to a book on the show notes that was highly recommended, somewhere around minutes 15-20 of the podcast. But I don’t see it anywhere. Is there another place where references to the show are located? Thanks!
Hi John, the book mentioned is called The Ultimate Gift and it’s written by Jim Stovall. The link should have been at the end of the show notes (it’s there now). Here’s a link if you’d like to purchase it: https://bookshop.org/a/7448/9780800737269. We also have a free guide to our Monday and Wednesday shows with lots of additional links and resources like this. To subscribe, go to https://www.stackingbenjamins.com/stacker/.
