2014.06.27 【英译中】Ask Yourself How Will You Lead(九)

发表于:2014-06-27 16:17 [只看楼主] [划词开启]

A good leader recognizes that most people won’t feel comfortable challenging authority, so it falls upon authority to encourage them to question. It’s easy to say that you’re going to encourage feedback but it’s hard to do, because unfortunately it doesn’t always come in a format we want to hear.
一个优秀的领导者意识到很多人会对挑战权威而感到不适。所以需要领导者放低姿态鼓励人们来质疑权威。鼓励人们向领导反馈意见,这说起来容易做起来难。因为令人遗憾的是,我们不太可能会通过所期待的方式得到反馈。

 

When I first started at Google, I had a team of four people and it was really important to me that I interview everyone. For me, being part of my team meant I had to know you. When the team had grown to about 100 people, I realized it was taking longer to schedule my interviews. So one day at my meeting of just my direct reports, I said “maybe I should stop interviewing”, fully expecting them to jump in and say “no, your interviews are a critical part of the process.” They applauded. Then they fell over themselves explaining that I was the bottleneck of all time. I was embarrassed. Then I was angry and I spent a few hours just quietly fuming. Why didn’t they tell me I was a bottleneck? Why did they let me go on slowing them down? Then I realized that if they hadn’t told me, it was my fault. I hadn’t convinced them that I wanted that feedback and I would have to change that going forward.
当我在谷歌刚开始工作时,我拥有一个四人的小型团队,而亲自面试每一个人对我而言非常重要。对于我来说,成为团队的一份子意味着我必须了解你。当团队逐渐扩大到有100人时,我意识到安排面试花费我很长的时间。所以一天,在我的报告会上,我说道:“也许我该停止面试。”我本满心期待团队成员会跳起来大声反对:“怎么可以!你参与面试是这个过程的重要部分!”相反,他们为此欢呼。接着,他们作出解释,我总是阻碍了团队的发展。我很尴尬。紧接着,我非常愤怒,恼火了好几个小时。为什么他们不告诉我我阻碍了团队的发展?为什么他们放任不理任我由拖他们的后腿?接着,我意识到如果他们不愿告诉我,那问题肯定出在我身上。关于我渴望得到反馈这件事,我并没有使他们足够地信服。如果我想继续前行,我不得不改变。(怎么翻译都觉得很奇怪..)
