二、五大職場生存守則 Workplace Survival Principles

1. 站在老闆的立場想 ➡ Put yourself in your boss’ shoes.

Figure out the challenges your boss will encounter in a day and be prepared to offer solutions. Thinking ahead can really show that you’re an invaluable team member.

先想好適合的方案,協助你的老闆去解決當天可能會發生的任何挑戰。總是快別人一步的你, 更能顯露出你在團隊中的價值無上限。

2. 適時表現你的價值 ➡ Show your value.

They hired you for a reason, so make sure that you’re adding value to the organization and/or position. Bosses want employees to be willing to speak up about the realities in the business that need to be addressed. This builds your boss’s confidence in you.

公司僱用你一定有其原因,所以你的所作所為一定要是能夠對公司有幫助的。 老闆想要的是能夠將職場上的現實面給講出來並解決的雇員,總是能解決辦法的人能夠建立起老闆 對你的信心。

3. 知道正確的時間以及方法與你的老闆溝通 ➡ Know when and how to communicate with your boss.

Does your supervisor like one sentence e-mails or prefer a detailed account of what’s going on? Remembering how your supervisor likes to communicate will also help you be more efficient when communicating with him/her.

你的上司總是透過Email一句話交代所有的該做好的事;抑或總是鉅細靡遺的交代每一件小事情呢? 學習上司溝通的習慣可以幫助你更有效率地與老闆溝通喔。

4. 隨時保持禮貌 ➡ Be polite at all times.

There will always be a lot of BS in the workplace, but just keep in mind: “You can never please everyone, but be polite.” Keeping this mentality in the workplace, you will take to your job like a duck to water.

在職場上遇到的鳥事永遠太多,但只要謹記著:「你永遠不能討好所有人,但一定要有禮貌。 」保持這樣的心態於職場間游走,你一樣可以在職場內如魚得水。

5. 絕對不要對老闆說謊 ➡ Never lie to the boss.

In a company, the boss pays high attention to the integrity of the employees. So even if you make a big mistake, you still have to be honest with your boss. If you lie to the boss because you are afraid that he/she will be angry, his/her impression of you will be greatly deducted!

一間企業裡,老闆最重視員工的誠信。所以儘管犯下天大的錯誤,還是要對老闆誠實,不要害怕老闆生氣,就輕易對老闆撒謊,這樣會讓老闆對你的印象大大扣分喲!
