    Excellent video. I certain informs us that every individual has challenges that we do not know about and their behaviour is at times related to those challenges. We should not judge people’s behaviour and mannerism based our thinking at the time without knowledge of their circumstances.
    I do hope this video get a lot of visitors.

      Thanks, Paul, definitely gives us something to think about and our need to think beyond the surface level and realized we’re all dealing with things in our own way. That’s why when people ask me for a training on “dealing with difficult people,” I say “I don’t do those type of programs because I don’t believe in ‘difficult people,’ I only believe in difficult situations that cause people to act in a difficult manner. It is our responsibility to seek to understand what’s really behind the difficult behavior.”

  2. Thank you very much for sharing this awesome video. The world is full of problems but we have to learn to live with them, deal with them and move on!!

    You never know what people are dealing with but typically there are cues for how to deal with everyone.

    Thanks for commenting here. It is a very interesting video and is very poignant about how we all often go through our day making judgements. And, most of it all stems from being caught in our world and how the world at the moment is impacting us, without a thought for how our actions may have played a role in putting us in that situation.

    We need more BOTD in the world! And, more communication focused Stephen Covey’s “4th Habit of Highly Effective People!”

    I’ll everyone figure out what BOTD is and you can all research Covey’s 4th Habit. Leave a comment below with your answers.
    Thanks for playing here and please do come back!

    Skip- this was a powerful message, and I was very moved by it. Thanks so much for giving me a great start to my Friday! I remember a concept from my first course with you, which was to ask myself “What else could it mean”? All kinds of events happen every day in my life, and I own the meaning I attach to every event. This video just brought it all back.

      Sharon,
      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Good to see you back here. I’m pleased you found value in that little video.

      You made my day referring to some of your learnings from our training from our first course.

      Nice try on the BOTD – it’s actually “Benefit of the Doubt” – there is not enough of that being offered to others whereas most people are always looking for it for themselves, I notice.

      Thanks, again, and come back soon!

    The message in the video, help to tenderize tougher small businesses owners. This video exemplifies the spirit in the recommendations mentions by Skip in “The Missing Ingredient Necessary to Improve Employee Performance White Paper Report.”

    *Having the humility, vulnerability, authenticity and empathy to ask that secret magic question” (page 10). The magic question Skip refers to ask to each member of staff is: “What is getting in your way of doing an even better job?” (page 9).

    To cook a Championship Company Culture, you will need these ingredients:
    humility, vulnerability, authenticity, and empathy!

      Domingo,
      Thanks you for stopping by and being inspired to add to the conversation here. I’m so pleased you found value in my “Missing Ingredient” report. Note that the four words of Humility, Authenticity, Vulnerability and Empathy create the acronym HAVE for my “H.A.V.E. Leadership Style”.

      Please come back again and add to the discussions anytime.

    Absolutely opens your eyes and also your mind. Excellent vid.
    How we become totally focused on ourselves and discount those around us.

    You never know what the other guy is facing. Great video.

  9. Reed

    Great reminder for us all that everyone is working through something. We all have one we may turn to as the great exemplar of reaching out and serving others. May we all remember his acts of service for us and reach out and serve others.

    • Skip Weisman

      Hey Reed, It was great meeting you at the PMI Northern Utah Professional Development Conference and I’m pleased you found value in the video. I appreciate you comments here and I’m glad you liked the message in the video.

  10. Tracy Skalitzky

    I liked the video and it puts life into perspective as we all have our issues or battles that we deal with on a daily basis. It shows that if you treat others with respect and kindness it goes a long way. Reminds me that next time I get frustrated to remember other people have issues too.

    • Skip Weisman

      Tracy, Thanks for being inspired by the video enough to leave a comment. It is important for us to take a step back and realize that everyone has stuff going on. That’s why I always give people the benefit of the doubt, no matter how egregious there behavior is in my presence. You just never know. There isn’t enough “benefit of the doubt” in our society these days.
      Thanks, again, and please return to my blog and comment when the inspiration moves you.
