Lesson 195 - Vote of No Confidence (2)

作者:VOA礼节美语 发布日期:2-1-2012

公司董事David和Ken谈话,觉得公司CEO Vincent不称职。David说,

David: One of Vincent's biggest problems is his tendency to micro-manage everything. He sticks his nose into everything instead of leaving the day-to-day decisions to the guys who know what they're doing.

K: That's true. He also seems rather uncertain and indecisive about many things.

D: Yeah...we need a leader who can inspire us. The CEO needs to be a coach, not a referee. You know...not everyone is cut out to be a leader.

K: I think one of the primary skills a leader needs is the ability to listen.

David觉得 Vincent 最大的问题之一是喜欢 micro-manage 管得太细。He sticks his nose into everything. 不论什么事他都要插手,to stick one's nose into something 意思是插手某事。Ken 也说,Vincent 在很多问题上优柔寡断,而且不会听取意见。David 还说,not everyone is cut out to be a leader. 不是人人都能当领导的。to be cut out for something 意思是适合做某事。

D: Vincent is terrible at that. He frequently seems to completely misunderstand what we're trying to get across. Just between you and me, I've spoken to a few other board members and they say if there is a vote of no confidence, they'll vote "no."

K: But will Vincent be forced to resign if there is such a vote?

D: No...but it will do one of two things: one, it will serve as a wake-up call and he might change his style - or two: he might step down if he realizes he's lost the support of the board.

David已经跟其他一些董事会成员打过招呼,他们都表示,如果有不信任案,他们会投不信任票。这样可能会有两种结果,it will either serve as a wake-up call. 要么会给Vincent 敲响警钟,让他自觉改变管理风格,要么会让 Vincent 意识到,自己已经失去董事会的支持,自觉下台。

K: Shouldn't we try to find a way to give him a chance to avoid embarrassment?

D: Yes we should. I'll be writing him a private letter next week and expressing our thoughts on the matter. I'd appreciate it if you would sign the letter as well.

K: Humm...well, I guess that's the best way. We'll give him a chance to either improve or resign.

D: And if he rejects those options, we'll try a vote of no confidence.

K: Ok, David....I'm on board. Let's give it a shot.

Ken建议 give him a chance to avoid embarrassment 设法避免让Vincent难堪,David表示赞同,决定先给 Vincent写封私人信件,阐述他们的意见,希望Ken能在上面联署。Ken承认,这可能是最好的方式,说,I'm on board. 算我一个,Let's give it a shot. 咱们试试看。

On vicent's mico-management and putting nose on everything, I will be writing a private letter as a wake-up call on this matter and expressing our thoughts in order to avoid embarrassment, plus offerring him another chance to either improve or resign.

Not everyone is cut out to be a leader. Our general manager sticks his nose into everything instead of leaving day-to-day decisions to the guys who know what they're doing. I'm on board, let's give it a shot.

micro-manage is not a good thing for GM, he should control big direction and give all function big support to do best.

learnt much form this passage.A qualified leader definitely is a man who is a coach, not a referee. he must focus on the big picture rather than sticking his nose into everything. the ability to lenson and be decisive is most improtant.

i am agree that as a leader should be focus on how to inspire the guys to complete the goals of the positon and give surbordinate more support . not everyone is cut to be a leader Mico-management, misunderstand direction, uncertain and indecisive all these are terrible for a manager.

what do you learn from this article? first i think not everyone is cut out to be a leader, and second, if you are a leader now, you must be passionalble, openess, extraversion,decisive, confident.if you are uncertain and indecisive ,no confidence, you should step down immediately or you will be f.ace a vote no confidence and lacks of supports of top managemnet. this is terrible and embarrassment. Not eveyone is cut out to be a leader.

What do you know from this article? I think not everyone is cut out to be a leader.The boss should not have the tendency to micro-manage everthing and step his nose into everything instead of leavying the day to day decisions to the guys who know what they are doing.
