坚决要炒的三类老板


在超过30年的高科技行业职业生涯中,我有幸能与数百也许数千的优秀人才共事。遗憾的是,这本身并不说明什么,对于任何一个CEO 高管或企业家都很可能遇到过优秀的人才为你做事。不过,要是说起管理能力和领导素质,管理者们的表现则呈现为标准的钟形曲线:持续成功的管理者在一端,极为无效的管理者在另一端,其余的都在两者之间。
I've had the opportunity to work with hundreds, maybe thousands of brilliant people over a 30-year career in high-tech. Unfortunately, that's not really saying much, since just about any CEO, executive, or entrepreneur you're likely to come across has the smarts to do the job.When it comes to management ability and leadership qualities, however, bosses tend to follow a pretty standard bell shaped curve: consistently successful managers at one narrow end, remarkably ineffective ones at the other end, and everyone else in between.
经过这些年的经历与观察,对于怎样成为一名优秀的管理者和哪种行为习惯可能使管理者出现在曲线的一端或另一端,我已经有了相当的了解。
After all the years, experiences, and observations, I've got a pretty good handle on what it takes to be a great manager and what kind of behavior will tend to land an executive at one end of the bell curve or the other.
当然并没有一种类型的管理者适合所有情况,但我已经比较确定有三类管理者不应该管理任何事,更不要说去经营整个组织或公司了。不仅他们自己会失败,他们还会把整个组织及其中的所有人一道拖下水。
And while one size manager does not fit all situations, I have been able to identify, with relative certainty, three types of managers who shouldn't be running anything, let alone an organization or a company. Not only will they fail, they'll take the whole organization and everyone in it down with them.
要是不信,请往下看。我打赌你能把任何一败涂地的管理者对应到以下三个类别之一中。顺便说一句,如果你的老板就在其中,劝你赶快上网更新简历。如果你本人就在其中,说什么好呢,你已经深陷…额...你懂的。
If you don't believe me, check it out. I bet you can fit just about any executive who has failed big-time into one of these three categories. Incidentally, if your boss fits one, better get on LinkedIn and update your resume. And if you fit one, what can I say, you're in deep you-know-what.
下面就是三类应该被炒的管理者,越快越好:
Here are three types of bosses that should be fired, and sooner rather than later:
办公室里的万事通
The Smartest Guy in the Room
这就是那个知道所有答案而且永远,绝对不会错的人。他不仅陶醉于自己的一切想法,还四处推广。他要求所有人都赞同他对事务进展的宏伟展望,并确保身边围绕着一圈应声虫,同时残酷的修理异见分子。
This is the guy who has all the answers and can never, ever be wrong. He doesn't just breathe his own fumes or drink his own Kool-Aid, he makes and mass-markets it, as well. He wants everyone to agree with his grandiose vision of how things should be and makes sure of that by surrounding himself with yes-men and women and ruthlessly beating down dissenting views.
这类人失败的原因就是他们被自我幻想的魔力蒙蔽了双眼,因此无法客观。他们趋向于固执己见,不愿面对现实直到一切都已太迟。不幸的是,市场并不追随任何人的计划。市场源于竞争者和自由的消费者,它的走向自有奇妙之处。
The reason these people fail is they're blinded by the power of their own vision and therefore lack objectivity. They tend to be rigid and inflexible in their thinking and unwilling to see what's really happening until it's too late. Unfortunately, markets don't behave according to anyone's plan. They're populated by competitors and customers with free will and have a funny way of determining their own outcome.
自我中心
It's All About Me
有些人永远不会长大,而是卡在了常人成长的某个阶段。他们看起来就像是一个普通的成年人,然而内心深处,他们是暴躁,任性,自我膨胀的小孩。由于他们的最高理想就是引人注意,被所有人崇拜谄媚,他们时常会表现出超凡的魅力,他们几乎像变色龙一样去应对所遇情境。根据一条信息,一个会议或一段对话,他们的立场和策略会反覆无常。
Some people never grow up but get stuck in one phase or another of human development. They look just like normal adults, but inside, they're petulant, narcissistic children with oversized egos. Since their overriding goal is to get attention, to be adulated and worshipped by all, they're often charismatic and charming, almost chameleon-like in the way they appeal to all sorts of constituents. And their positions and strategies can flip and flop from one day to the next based on one data point, meeting, or conversation.
当然健康的自我认同是必要的,有益于领导者,但生意并非是关于任何个人。它是满足顾客的需求,达成长期发展,成就股东和员工以及对产品和服务的热情。如果认为资本主义自由市场就是自私与贪婪就大错特错了。任何公司,董事会,CEO,管理团队都服务于其股东及成员。如果不是,必将失败。
While a healthy ego is necessary and good for leaders, business isn't really about any particular individual. It's about meeting customer needs, achieving long-term growth and success for shareholders and employees, and being passionate about your products and services. People who think free market capitalism is about selfish greed couldn't be more wrong. Every company, board, CEO, executive team, serves its stakeholders and constituents. If it doesn't, it'll fail.
想当年
The Has-Been
我们也许会叫他的名字,Peter,因为这个人或多或少是由Peter原则所定义的。Peter曾经有效和成功;至少看起来是这样。但当时是非常特定的一种情况,环境在改变,已经离开了他的领域,超出了他的能力。
We may as well call him by his name, Peter, because this person is more or less defined by the Peter Principle. Peter was once effective and successful; at least it appeared that way. But the situation had a narrow set of boundaries and variables and now, things have changed and Peter is out of his depth, beyond his level of competency.
也许他被提拔了,公司在发展,市场在改变,或者他现在来到了一家新的公司新的职位。不管环境如何,Peter已不再有效,而无法看到或相信这一点使他成为了组织的累赘。无论出于什么原因,Peter缺乏成长,进步或适应的能力。既然他还在这个位置上,他就不只是一个遗物,而是绕在公司脖子上的沉重的锚。
Perhaps he was promoted, the company grew, the market changed, or he's now in a new position in a new company. Regardless of the circumstances, Peter is no longer effective and his inability to see or believe it renders him toxic to the organization. For whatever reason, Peter lacks the ability to grow, scale, or adapt. And since he's still in a position of power and authority, he's not just an old relic, but a heavy anchor around the company's neck.
