There are many principles of speaking, but not all of them, but Confucius's Exposition in the eight Analects of Confucius can give us some enlightenment.
Principle 1: do nothing.
Interpretation: pointing out that the situation has become (fixed), do not explain again.
Business management consultant Zhang general manager said that the so-called "do nothing" now.
The embodiment is that the company or the leader has decided what to do. Do not evaluate. No matter how much you think these suggestions and ideas will bring to the company, they must stick to the principle of not saying it.
General manager Zhang said, "before the company decides, you must speak your mind as an employee.
But after deciding, no matter whether it is adopted or not, it must be done in accordance with the direction set by the company.
Zhang said: "deciding things is a matter of the company's leadership. We need to be clear about our position and value. Do not give suggestions or ideas beyond our authority. Otherwise, you and your company will be hurt."
"At work, the headquarters appointed a branch manager. You think you know him better. He will destroy the branch.
Do you want to say this at this time? If you say, can you change the decision of the headquarters? If it changes, where is the authority of the headquarters? "
In particular, remind workplace workers, especially those in the workplace, to analyze their knowledge more comprehensively.
He said, "
Loyalty to the enterprise and wholeheartedly for the sake of the enterprise is very worthy of affirmation, but sometimes it is good to do bad things. For what, like the above example, for the choice of branch manager, the headquarters's consideration must be broader and broader.
There is a saying in management science that "buttocks decide the head", that is to say, in what position, what we want to think about, if we want more and think more, we need to conduct a more comprehensive analysis of our knowledge, otherwise it is likely to be counterproductive.
Principle two: do not admonish
Interpretation: what is being done, do not try to persuade.
"If he is wrong, let him be wrong in the end, and finally summarize and review."
Education President Duan Yan said so.
The head of the Department said: "for the enterprise, the boss and the manager are making many decisions every day. Data statistics show that the best decision-makers can not guarantee the accuracy of decisions, and the right decisions only account for 70% of the total decisions."
"Of course, we all know that right decisions are better than wrong decisions.
But if we correct and calibrate the decisions we are carrying out every day, then the result must be that the enterprises do not make decisions. Then what we should do is the best way to do it first. We must insist on doing it most of the time, even if there are some losses.
Of course, we must talk about the decision that may cause great loss, but we must pay attention to the method. One suggestion is to give it to the boss in writing, one is to communicate with the leader in private.
Zhang Dongxue, executive director of Business Management Consultants Limited, also said: "is there a wrong decision or a good decision? Wrong decisions may cause enterprises to lose time and money. Without decisions, enterprises will be in a state of disunity and lack of backbone. Enterprises do not know the direction of their development, and employees do not know how to do so.
In contrast, it is better to lose money and time temporarily.
Both are harmful and take it lightly! "
Principle three: let bygones be bygones
Interpretation: no blame for past mistakes.
This means that we should appropriately pursue our responsibilities.
It is not all matters that should be held accountable to the last responsible person.
Some small things, too much investigation, may hurt others' face and enthusiasm, and things will not work well in the future.
"When a man marries, he finds a secret of the bride on the wedding night. Is it to say, or not?" it's already a thing of the past. What is the meaning of it? Pretend not to know! This principle applies to some smart people. If you don't catch up, the other party will know that you are wrong.
However, for those who do not know themselves, they should constantly beat them and be accountable to others, otherwise they will not be able to get better.
