The nail or not

More from my top ten of the Jedi emails - this one came from an odd little video I found...this email provoked a fair about of emotion. 

I came across this video and wanted to share it with you......

It's a quick watch [seriously under 2 minutes]

I think the intent for it is to highlight communication in relationships and primarily communication between men and women. I think there are still lessons for us all.

I've written about listening before and you know it's something I think is a vital skill of leaders and something you always need to keep working at.

In these days of what seems like relentless pressure, with no down time, just giving someone the time and listening to them can really make someone's day. I know it can for me.

It can be a simple way for you to make someone feel valued, respected and that they matter. No advice, no answers, no solutions needed. Just you. Listening. It's not about the nail.

One of the most sincere forms of respect is actually listening to what another has to say

If you want to behind the video I've found a couple of links for you:
