来自Facebook明星高管的最佳忠告

Patricia Sellers 2013年04月02日

Facebook另一位明星高管在行业精英聚会上抛出的一个问题引出了一连串的真知灼见,正是这些建议帮助他们取得了职场上的成功。

    
Facebook副总裁卡洛琳•艾弗森

    Facebook全球营销解决方案副总裁卡洛琳•艾弗森发现自己的公司在欧洲市场上存在管理空白时,她选择了亲自出马来解决这个问题。她把全家——包括她的丈夫道格以及一对双胞胎女儿——从美国新泽西州搬到了伦敦。

    现在艾弗森已经在伦敦呆了半年,致力于巩固欧洲业务,拜访国际广告客户,同时帮助物色新的地区主管。前几天,她匆匆回了趟家(她将在今年六月完全调回美国),昨晚还在曼哈顿设宴款待了NBC 环球(NBC Universal)、迪士尼(Walt Disney)、维亚康姆(Viacom)以及流媒体音乐服务供应商Spotify等公司的好友和客户。

    我当时也在场。大家七嘴八舌地聊着Facebook首席运营官谢丽尔•桑德伯格排在榜首的畅销书《向前一步》(Lean In),这时艾弗森问道:“你们得到的最佳忠告是什么?”“我得到的最佳忠告”刚好是《财富》(Fortune)杂志一个颇受欢迎的专题。艾弗森的客人们贡献了10条建议,我把它们加进自己的最佳建议清单,在此同各位分享:

    每次走进一个房间,都要把自己想象成一个恒温器。(这是艾弗森的最佳建议,是她在维亚康姆工作时一位上司给她的。)

    永远要给人们加油打气,而不是贬低他们。

    不管是对服务员还是对大老板,都要一视同仁。

    不要害怕犯错——坦然接受失败。

    懂得变通。聪明人都知道利用不确定性获得成长。

    把职业看成游乐场里孩子们玩的那种立体方格游戏架,而不是一架梯子。(这是我的最佳建议,也是谢丽尔•桑德伯格的建议。)

    多跟比你聪明的人打交道。

    不管级别有多高,都别太自负,自己分内的事还是要干。

    不断学习。假如不学习,那还有什么意义?

    找到双赢的办法。雄心勃勃同与人为善并不矛盾。

    When Carolyn Everson, Facebook's (FB) VP of global marketing solutions, confronted a management void in Europe, she opted to fix the problem herself. She moved her family--husband Doug and twin daughters--from New Jersey to London.

    Now Everson is on the ground for six months, fortifying the European business, visiting international advertisers, and helping in the hunt for a new leader for the region. Last evening, during a quick trip home (she's due back for good in June), she hosted a dinner in Manhattan for friends and clients at companies including NBC Universal (CMCSA), Walt Disney (DIS), Viacom (VIAB), and Spotify.

    I was there. While there was lots of chatter about Lean In--the No. 1 best seller by Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg--Everson stirred the conversation by asking, "What's the best advice you ever got?" This topic--"Best Advice I Ever Got"--happens to be a popular Fortune franchise. Everson's dinner guests offered up 10 bits of advice that I'm adding to my list and will share with you:

    1. Every time you walk into a room, think of yourself as a thermostat. (This is Everson's best advice, which she got from a former boss at Viacom.)

    2. Always leave people feeling bigger instead of smaller.

    3. Treat the waiter and the receptionist and the CEO the same way.

    4. Don't be afraid to be wrong--and embrace your failures.

    5. Know your workaround. Nimble people thrive on uncertainty.

    6. View your career as a jungle gym, not a ladder. (This is my best advice, and Sheryl Sandberg's advice too.)

    7. Surround yourself with people who are smarter than you.

    8. No matter what your level, don't be too proud to do what needs to get done.

    9. Always learn. If you're not learning, what's the point?!

    12. Find the win-win. Ambition and kindness are not mutually exclusive.
