Podcast Season 5, Episode 16: Appreciation (That’s What The Money’s For!)

On this episode of the Radical Candor podcast, Kim, Amy and Jason discuss terms that are often used interchangeably but actually mean different things: Praise, Recognition, Appreciation and Gratitude. Kim also takes on the role of Don Draper to act out a scene from Mad Men’s beloved episode “The Suitcase.” Listen to learn why  — in most cases — “that’s what the money is for” is not sufficient recognition or appreciation.
