部门经理Fay找手下Steve来,讨论他的年度中期工作表现,除了上班迟到,Steve还有哪些缺点呢?S: OK...what other issues are there with my performance?F: Well, like I said before, you are very enthusiastic and we appreciate that, but sometimes you can be a bit over-the-top.S: What do you mean by that?F: Well, sometimes your co-workers feel that you are too loud, or you tell inappropriate jokes during office hours.S: Who said that about me? Tell me their name!Fay说Steve有时热情得over-the-top, 有点过头,办公室同事觉得Steve太吵,而且还开一些不合时宜的玩笑。Steve气得不行,问是谁在背后打他的小报告。F: You know I cant do that and I dont think its important who feels this way. The truth is that maybe you could try to tone down your volume and be more careful of what you say.S: I think people are too sensitive.F: That could be true, but we all have to work together so its probably best not to step on peoples toes.S: OK...I guess I can try to tone it down.F: Can you handle another criticism?S: Sure...why not? Bring it on!Fay表示,谁说的并不重要,她也不能告诉Steve,但她建议Steve还是要tone down your volume说话小声点,Dont step on peoples toes. 别踩到别人脚指头,意思是不要冒犯别人。F: I would recommend that you work on following through with projects. You have a lot of good ideas and you start quite a few different projects, but many times you dont follow through. Then all these ideas are just floating around but nothing is really getting done.S: But Im really more of an idea person. I come up with concepts and start them, but the legwork is really not my style.Fay建议Steve做项目要follow through. 做事有始有终。 Steve好主意虽然多,可nothing is really getting done.没有什么是真正落实了的。Steve说自己就是擅长出点子,Im more of an idea person. 但是具体跑腿儿、落实就不是他的风格了,the legwork is not my style. Legwork意思是跑腿儿的活,具体工作。F: Honestly Steve, You have a lot of talent, but if you dont complete tasks, you wont get promoted.S: Well, thanks for the advice. Ill try to work on that.F: Again, I cant stress enough how grateful we are for all the work you do. Overall, you are a quality employee and were glad to have you.S: Thanks for saying that, Fay. I appreciate it.F: Sure. Thanks for stopping by and well do this again in six months.S: See you then!Steve保,他会努力改正。Ill try to work on that. 谈话结束前,Fay 再次强调,Steve是优秀员工,a quality employee,公司能有他这样的员工很高兴。Were glad to have you. /201202/170523
