职场6字真言

Anne Fisher 2012年02月13日

你可能认为只言片语表达不了太多含义,然而最近一次职场金句的竞赛却涌现了不少具有真知灼见的参赛作品,堪称字字珠玑。

    如何才能在职场获得成功?如果有人要你用短短一句话来总结,你会怎么说?去年,史密斯杂志(Smith magazine)和美世咨询公司(Mercer)把这个问题抛给了公众,结果收到了数以千计的反馈。他们从中遴选出了400条,并集结成册,取名《职场6字真言》,其中包括以下一些金句:

    “勿以小人之心度人。”(特里•埃德曼)

    “舍天才,取良才。”(拉瑞•布莱德利)

    “执着胜于资历。”(米契•波来克)

    “做公司主人翁。”(约翰•桑顿)

    “要数据?找秘书!”(吉姆•伯曼)

    “记住保安和保洁的名字。”(卫斯理•考尔)

    “安逸使人落后。”(黛比•比茨)

    “做事想在对方前面。”(盖瑞•贝尔斯基)

    “见怪不怪,其怪自败。”(卡拉•卡塞尔)

    “聪明反被聪明误。”(戴安•蒂奇奈尔)

    “多走动,少电联。”(朱丽叶特•莫斯帕斯)

    “不断自我增值。”(兰德尔•雷恩)

    “不知为不知。”(B. 萨维尔)

    “擒贼先擒王。”(凯西•史密斯)

    “你说行就行,不行也行。”(桑迪•海莫雷恩)

    “快速失败。快速学习。快速提高。”(史蒂芬•罗宾斯)

    “团队建设可免则免。”(玛丽•高登)

    “要撒野,去外面。”(卡罗尔•威尔森)

    “别让老板措手不及。”(罗丽特•劳伊)

    “老板咆哮别发笑。”(莱斯利•伍尔芙•布兰斯科姆)

    想成为卓越的老板吗?那就继续往下看吧!下面短短几句话的描述简直可以作为卓越领袖的速成教材。看看这些人何评论他们“曾经遇到过的最好的老板”。

    “责任重于泰山,个人轻于鸿毛。”(阿妮塔•桑德斯)

    “少说多听,进退有度。”(鲍勃•迈尔斯)

    “从善如流。”(黛博拉•库内法尔)

    If someone asked you to sum up in six words what you've learned so far about how to succeed in business, what would you say? When Smith magazine and consulting firm Mercer posed the question last year, they got thousands of entries, which they winnowed down to 400 for a book called Six Words About Work. A sampling of the winners:

    • "Always start with assuming good intentions." — Teri Edman

    • "Don't hire geniuses, hire capable people." — Larry Bradley

    • "Persistence has more value than qualifications." — Mitch Polack

    • "Work like you own the company." — John Thornton

    • "Need the facts? Ask a secretary!" — Jim Berman

    • "Know security guards, cleaners by name." — Wesley Coll

    • "You're not learning if you're comfortable." — Debbie Beets

    • "Do one more thing than requested." — Gary Belsky

    • "Screw-ups will happen. Just own them." — Kara Carthel

    • "Cutting corners only creates more paperwork." — Dyan Titchnell

    • "Walk the hall rather than call." — Juliette Mirsepasy

    • "Add value — otherwise you're a commodity." — Randall Lane

    • "If you don't know, say so." — B. Saville

    • "Get the hardest part done first." — Cathy Smith

    • "Pretend impossibilities are possible. They are." — Sandi Hemmerlein

    • "Fail fast. Learn fast. Improve fast." — Steven Robins

    • "Avoid all paintball team-building games." — Mary Gordon

    • "Go outside the building to scream." — Carol Wilson

    • "Surprise your spouse, not your boss." — Laureatte Loy

    • "Don't laugh while boss is ranting." — Leslie Wolf Branscomb

    And speaking of bosses, how about a 42-word crash course in how to be a great one? Consider these descriptions of "the best boss I ever had."

    • "Took responsibilities very seriously, not himself." — Anita Sanders

    • "Two ears, one mouth, engaged wisely." — Bob Myers

    • "Asked for ideas, and used them." — Deborah A. Cunefare
