1分钟经理人

有人问我有什么好的管理书籍可以读一读,我不假思索地推荐了这本肯.布兰佳(Kenneth Blanchard)的——《一分钟经理人》(”One minuate manager”)。该书百余页,简单易懂,亲切实用。比起彼德杜鲁曼的长篇宏论,我更喜欢他的短小精悍。虽然我看这本书的时候,并不知道他就是当年在中国热销的《谁动了我的奶酪》的作者,但书中所传达的理念,确实为我的工作提供了清晰可行的思路。

其实,该书是我当年的助手NERI推荐给我的。NERI是一位聪明机智,工作勤恳的菲律宾籍女子,当时我工作遇到瓶颈,她与我同甘共苦,并肩作战,并在我向她询问有什么管理类书籍可看的情况下,推荐了这本书。在看完那本书后,我很明确地认定,她即是属于“supporting”型人才—— 面对这种类型的助手,你不再需要手把手地教她该如何去做,因为她能及时理解你的意图,并出色完成。她已然成为你的另一个大脑,能协助你作出决定,完成各项任务。回头想来,我后来也确实越来越少地与她在安排工作时就细节问题反复嘱咐,我放手让她去做,仅仅验收她的成果,这样,我们真的节省了许多宝贵的时间,也有很多次,我莽撞的决定也因她的提醒而得以更改和弥补。

至于对待其他的团队人员,我也参照Different strokes for different folks的管理理念,始终以人为本,虽然这句话很废话,但废话得很经典。

如今我已不在企业内工作一年多了,但工作的实质却是放之四海而皆准的,不管在哪里,这些管理的技巧,都能让自己在与他人的沟通上,变得更有效率。

以下是我当时做的读书笔记,因为英文本身很简单,就不翻译了。

Different strokes for different folks 

The four basic leadership styles are :
style 1 directing
the leader provides specific instructions and closely supervises task accomplishment 

style 2 coaching
the leader continues to direct and closely supervise task accomplishment,but also explains  
decisions,solicits suggestions, and supports progress. 

style 3 supporting
the leader facilitates and support subordinates efforts toward task accomplishment and shares 
responsibility for decision-making with them. 

style 4 delegating
the leader turns over resposiblity for decision-making and problem -solving to subordinates. 

下面是我摘录的几句作者或总结或引用的语录。有意思的是,肯.布兰佳还引了Mao Tse-tung的一句名言(见5)。

1)There’s nothing so unequal as the equal treatment of Unequals

2)When I slow down, I go faster——think before you act

3)Everyone has peak performance potential—you just need to know where they are coming from and meet them there.

4)You can expect more, if you inspect more.

5)When the best leader’s work is done, the people say:”we did it ourselves!”—Mao Tse-tung

6)Situational leadership is not somethig you do to people but something you do with people.

7)Everyone is a potential high performer, some people just need a little help along the way

8)To know but not to use is not yet to know!
