2014.06.27 【英译中】Ask Yourself How Will You Lead(六)

As you lead in this new world, you will not be able to rely on who you are or the degree you hold. You’ll have to rely on what you know. Your strength will not come from your place on some org chart, but from building trust and earning respect. You’re going to need talent, skill, and imagination and vision. But more than anything else, you’re going to need the ability to communicate authentically, to speak so that you inspire the people around you and to listen so that you continue to learn each and every day on the job.
当你们引领着这个全新的世界向前发展时,不能依靠你是谁,也不能依靠你所拥有的学位。你必须依靠你的知识。你的知识,不是源自组织机构图上你所处的位置,而是源自建立信任和获得尊重。你需要天赋、技能、想象力和远见。然而,最重要的是,你需要具备与人真诚沟通的能力,通过沟通,你能鼓励身边的人;通过倾听,你能持续不断地从每天的工作中学习。

 

If you watch young children, you’ll immediately notice how honest they are. My friend Betsy from my section a few years after business school was pregnant with her second child. Her first child was about five and said, “Mommy, where is the baby?” She said, “The baby is in my tummy.” He said, ‘Aren’t the baby’s arms in your arms?” She said, “No, the baby’s in my tummy.” “Are the baby’s legs in your legs?” “No, the whole baby is in my tummy.” Then he said, ‘Then Mommy, what is growing in your butt?”
如果你愿意观察一下小孩,你很快会发现他们有多么诚实。毕业时与我同在一组的朋友贝特西,从哈佛商学院毕业后没过几年就怀了第二个孩子。她的第一个孩子,五岁的山姆,环顾四周后问道:“妈妈,小宝宝在哪里啊?”贝特西回答:“小宝宝在我的肚子里。”他很惊讶:“真的吗?那小宝宝的手臂不就在你的手臂里?”她否认:“不。小宝宝的手臂在我的肚子里。”“那小宝宝的脚在你的脚里吗?”“不。整个小宝宝都在我的肚子里。”接着他又问道:“那妈妈,是什么长在你的屁股里啊?”

 

 

As adults, we are never this honest. And that’s not a bad thing. I have borne two children and the last thing I needed were those comments. But it’s not always a good thing either. Because all of us, and especially leaders, need to speak and hear the truth.
作为成年人,我们从来不会如此直接。这并不是坏事。我生了两个孩子,我最不需要的就是那些显然能够做出的评价。(感觉不通顺,“显然能够做出的评价”还是改为“毫不费力就可作出的结论”?)不过这也不总是好事。因为我们所有人,尤其是领导者,都需要说真话和听真话。
