2014.06.27 【英译中】Ask Yourself How Will You Lead(十)

When you’re the leader, it is really hard to get good and honest feedback, no many how many times you ask for it. One trick I’ve discovered is that I try to speak really openly about the things I’m bad at, because that gives people permission to agree with me, which is a lot easier than pointing it out in the first place. To take one of many possible examples, when things are unresolved I can get a tad anxious. Really, when anything’s unresolved, I get anxious. I’m quite certain no one has accused me of being too calm. So I speak about it openly and that gives people permission to tell me when it’s happening. But if I never said anything, would anyone who works at Facebook walk up to me and say, “Hey Sheryl, calm down. You’re driving us all nuts!” I don’t think so.
当你成为一个领导者时,无论多少次你要求获得良好真实的反馈,这都很难实现。我发现了一个小诀窍,当我试图直率地去谈论我不擅长的话题时,这样就赋予了人们一定的选择权来同意我的观点,这比一开始直接指出我的缺点更容易。举众多可能的例子中的一个来说吧,(读起来很别扭.)当无法解决问题时,我会感到轻微的焦虑。的确,一旦无法解决任何问题,我会感到焦虑。我确信没有人会指责我过于冷静沉着。因此,当我直率地谈论这些问题时,这赋予了人们权利,让他们告诉我正在发生的事情。但是如果我永远保持沉默,会有一个在Facebook工作的同事,走过来对我说:“嘿,谢瑞尔,冷静下来。你快把我们逼疯了!”吗?我想不会有人这样做。

 

As you graduate today, ask yourself, how will you lead. Will you use simple and clear language? Will you seek out honesty? When you get honesty back, will you react with anger or with gratitude?
既然你们今天毕业,那么请问问你们自己,你将如何领导他人。你会使用简洁明了的语言吗?你会寻找诚实吗?当你找回诚实,你会愤怒还是感激?(为什么突然扯到诚实..是因为上文提到的说真话?)
