Life coach's book focuses on positive people skills


“These people did not just descend from another planet,” Stack said. “Their lives are not perfect, they still have a whole host of things that go wrong. Why is it they can show up and be incredible? It’s emotional intelligence. ... They know a lot. They are positive. They are able to find what’s right, what’s working, what’s going well, and they can focus on that. And they are professional. They have a sense of boundaries, clarity, roles, responsibility. And it was consistent.”

And was there a dream boss in Stack’s career?

The book is dedicated to her first boss out of college, Paul B. Jay, or PBJ for short, who was her boss for two years at a diagnostic residential facility in Everett. He made the staff feel important and was someone who was “powerful, positive and professional,” Stack said.
