當主管最難的不是管理下屬,而是管好自己的嘴!

以信賴做管理,讓員工自己獨立思考,
反而能培養自我判斷、思考、行動的能力!

以下這三件事,主管千萬別管!


1. 別管部屬的工作細節

無論對錯,累積「判斷」的經驗,部屬才可能成長

只要有適度的自由、按照自己熟悉的步調做事。
員工才會覺得很自在,激發各種可能。

很多主管都希望員工聽話照做,卻不告訴他為什麼,
這樣久而久之,員工就會覺得「反正主管都說可以了...」
自然會想推卸責任,不去思考,
而主管想當然也會越做越累!

如果不給部屬機會累積經驗,學會正確判斷
主管就永遠都要替人擦屁股、收拾善後,
怎麼會有好成績呢?


2. 別要求部屬立刻回復郵件

回復郵件,絕對不是最重要的事

每個職務都有自己最重要的工作,
例如,
業務最重要的工作就是拜訪客戶,
研發工程師最重要的工作就是開發產品。

如果因此放掉最重要的工作,
這不叫「管理」,這叫「找碴」!


3. 別管部屬的私生活,別連請假的原因都要管!

靠「命令」來控制部屬,只會讓自己評價下降

優秀的主管,會「說服」部屬,
反之很多人一升上管理職,就會有一種自已很了不起的錯覺,
不知不覺擺起主管的架子來,
例如管道員工請假的原因、禁止員工在外兼差等等。

其實,

當主管最難的,

不是管理部屬,而是管理自己那張嘴!

Movie - Beyond a reasonable doubt

Movie - Me before you

美食回憶...缘途有您

記性愈來愈差,
上次潮飯聚晚飯後經過老友廚房,
和T說未曾食過此店,
她即時提醒我那次聚會曾吃過.

喜歡美食,
也是我美好回憶,
地方,人......
少時世記咖啡的午餐猪仔飽
小學時學校良記的淨麵加汁,
馬鴻記的辣魚飽,
光記的酸木瓜,
流動車的炸物,
母親為我嘗試做,我想吃的各式小菜, 糕點甜品,
因家貧少出外食飯,
除了放假往六國,遠來,大龍鳳等飲茶,
或舅舅带我們去安樂, 龍門西餐館吃雜扒餐,
第一次去高級西餐廳佛笑樓,
以及某次夏威夷的表姨和我們去大三元晚飯都是少有的.
祖父母的童年回憶最深的反而是祖父生日,
父親叫了酒家的到會在家門口的小巷空地宴請親朋,
好不熱鬧.

美味回憶隨著成長,工作及外遊,
更是精彩.
首次中國遊在新疆的羊肉串,Nang,蘭州拉面,
與S一班朋友香港单車遊大围的超豐富海鲜餐,
大學時超份量的美式飲食,
在Boone Tavern的一年光景,
與F四川成都的夫妻肺片及重慶火鍋,
泰國獨遊的街邊美食,
河內工作開會以外由香港代表團的食友安排不同的道地美食,
瑞士的芝士火鍋,
P多倫多Young street 附近酒店精緻甜品,
M纽约唐人街的龍蝦餐,
 在德國短聚S為我準備的一系列私房菜,燒鴨,餃子,蘋果蛋糕,
以及與J無數次的異地尋食經(驚)驗,
日本,泰國,意大利。。。。
再三回味,
原來日子每天的流逝,
一剎那間的味道,
伴隨著的人和事,
是最美好的回憶!


10 Interesting Facts About the English Language that You Didn’t Know

Guest Post by Rochelle Ceira

Did you know that enneacontakaienneagon is actually a word in the English language? (And you thought pronouncing supercalifragilisticexpialidocious was difficult?). In fact, the meaning of the word is just as bizarre as the word itself: it’s a shape with ninety-nine sides.

Madonna in a Fur Coat




The bestselling Turkish classic of love and longing in a changing world, available in English for the first time.
'It is, perhaps, easier to dismiss a man whose face gives no indication of an inner life. And what a pity that is: a dash of curiosity is all it takes to stumble upon treasures we never expected.' 

A shy young man leaves his home in rural Turkey to learn a trade in 1920s Berlin. The city's crowded streets, thriving arts scene, passionate politics and seedy cabarets provide the backdrop for a chance meeting with a woman, which will haunt him for the rest of his life. Emotionally powerful, intensely atmospheric and touchingly profound, Madonna in a Fur Coat is an unforgettable novel about new beginnings and the unfathomable nature of the human soul.

'Passionate but clear . . . Ali's success [is in ] his ability to describe the emergence of a feeling, seemingly straightforward from the outside but swinging back and forth between opposite extremes at its core, revealing the tensions that accompanies such rise and fall.' Atilla Özkirimli, writer and literary historian

The top ten most unexpected words added to the online Oxford dictionary

The latest additions have been announced, highlighting the things British people have been talking about in the summer of 2015, such as inconsiderate commuters, solidified waste and unacceptable service charges.
Here are ten of the most unexpected words on the list:

1. manspreading (noun): the practice whereby a man, especially one travelling on public transport, adopts a sitting position with his legs wide apart, in such a way as to encroach on an adjacent seat or seat

2. awesomesauce (adjective): extremely good; excellent

3. bants (noun): playfully teasing or mocking remarks exchanged with another person or group; bante

4. fat-shame (verb): cause (someone judged to be fat or overweight) to feel humiliated by making mocking or critical comments about their size

5. Brexit (noun): a term for the potential or hypothetical departure of the United Kingdom from the European Union

6. bruh (noun): a male friend (often used as a form of address)

7. cakeage (noun): a charge made by a restaurant for serving a cake they have not supplied themselves

8. fatberg (noun): a very large mass of solid waste in a sewerage system, consisting especially of congealed fat and personal hygiene products that have been flushed down toilets

9. Grexit (noun): a term for the potential withdrawal of Greece from the eurozone (the economic region formed by those countries in the European Union that use the euro as their national currency)

10. hangry (adjective): bad-tempered or irritable as a result of hunger



New words, senses, and phrases are added to OxfordDictionaries.com once editors have gathered enough independent evidence from a range of sources to be confident that they have widespread currency in English, but do not gain an entry into the Oxford English Dictionary unless continued historical use can be shown.
Fiona McPherson, senior editor of Oxford Dictionaries, said the addition of multiple slang words did not represent a dumbing down of English, but showed "creative" use of language.

She said: "There's always been new slang words. I just think we are more aware of them because of the ways in which we consume and live our lives now.

"We are bombarded with more and more avenues where those sort of words are used and we just think that there are more of them. I don't necessarily think that's the case.
"From my point of view, as a leixcographer, it's not really about dumbing down, it's more creative ways that people are using language."
