適才適性

FINDING GOOD PEOPLE – AND NOT MEDDLING

 

員工有很多類型,有一些需要監督,有一些則不需要。在執行任務或是計畫的時候,對於上司的期待或是自由發揮的空間,有些員工需要你給很清楚的指示,有些給個大概的指導就夠了。

 

想要成為一個有效率的領袖,他的挑戰就是去了解每一個員工需要甚麼,才能表現得最好、最有生產力,並且提供員工需要的以及監督他們工作。很多年前,美國老羅斯福總統就曾經說過:「最佳的行政是夠敏銳能選擇好的人才去做該做的事,又能夠自制在他們做事時,不去干涉他們所做的。」

 

領導者也有很多類型。有一些喜歡捲起衣袖參一腳,有些喜歡近距離監督,有些則是委派下屬工作並且相信他們會把事情做好,只有在員工有問題或是需要更進一步指示才會來檢查。

 

我自己的工作模式總是傾向於少一點計畫,讓工作完成的方式有更多的彈性和可能性。我也認識一些領導者很有自信地把工作交給我,讓我用自己的方式完成。也有些老闆對我的工作是採取緊迫盯人的方式,有些甚至是鉅細靡遺地檢查我的工作,讓我感到非常困擾,甚至是擾亂我的工作。不過有些人確實是需要有人緊盯著他們工作。很明顯地,領導者不能用同一種方式去領導不同的人。

 

所以,如同老羅斯福總統所說,好的領導者知道要如何去選擇正確的人來做工作,以及分辨如何領導他們工作,而不是去干擾他們。聖經也提到這個重要的平衡:

 

了解你所領導的人。領導者應該要清楚自己要完成的目標,更要努力去了解那些下屬可以把目標完成。「你要詳細知道你羊群的景況,留心料理你的牛群;因為資財不能永有,冠冕豈能存到萬代?乾草割去,嫩草發現,山上的菜蔬也被收斂。羊羔之毛是為你作衣服;山羊是為作田地的價值,並有母山羊奶夠你吃,也夠你的家眷吃,且夠養你的婢女。 (箴言 2723-27).

 

對你帶領的人表達關心和興趣 。耶穌用牧羊人的比喻,來解釋他和門徒之間的關係。優秀的領導者會去觀察耶穌的榜樣,並從中學習領導的智慧。「我是好牧人;好牧人為羊捨命。若是雇工,不是牧人,羊也不是他自己的,他看見狼來,就撇下羊逃走;狼抓住羊,趕散了羊群。雇工逃走,因他是雇工,並不顧念羊。我是好牧人;我認識我的羊,我的羊也認識我,正如父認識我,我也認識父一樣;並且我為羊捨命。 (約翰福音1011-15).

 

明白你帶領的人的獨特性  在一個團隊中,每一個人的恩賜、才能和經驗都不同。認識每個人的獨特性,能夠讓領導者在委派工作的時候,平等地分配他們責任和職權,以及他們能貢獻甚麼。「就如身子是一個,卻有許多肢體;而且肢體雖多,仍是一個身子;基督也是這樣。身子原不是一個肢體,乃是許多肢體。設若腳說:「我不是手,所以不屬乎身子,」它不能因此就不屬乎身子。設若耳說:「我不是眼,所以不屬乎身子,」它不能因此就不屬乎身子。若全身是眼,從哪媗民n呢?若全身是耳,從哪婸D味呢?但如今, 神隨自己的意思把肢體俱各安排在身上了。若都是一個肢體,身子在哪堜O?但如今肢體是多的,身子卻是一個。眼不能對手說:「我用不著你。」頭也不能對腳說:「我用不著你。」不但如此,身上肢體人以為軟弱的,更是不可少的。身上肢體,我們看為不體面的,越發給它加上體面;不俊美的,越發得著俊美。我們俊美的肢體,自然用不著裝飾;但 神配搭這身子,把加倍的體面給那有缺欠的肢體,免得身上分門別類,總要肢體彼此相顧。若一個肢體受苦,所有的肢體就一同受苦;若一個肢體得榮耀,所有的肢體就一同快樂。 (哥林多前書 1212-26).

反省與問題討論

 

第一你是甚麼類型的工作者?在工作時,你希望多一點自由,或者是你希望上司能一直給你指示和支持?

 

第二、根據老羅斯福總統的建議,優秀的領導者如何去選擇適當的人來完成工作?一旦這些人被找來團隊裡工作,領導者又要如何避免去干擾他們做事呢?

 

第三、你認為要分辨哪些人做哪些工作是最有效率的,是一件簡單的事嗎?箴言告訴我們應當如何做?理由是甚麼?

 

第四、為什麼讓下屬知道領導者真的關心他們和他們的利益是一件很重要的事?你覺得這是必要的嗎?解釋你的答案。

 

 

備註: 如果你手上有聖經,希望閱讀更多關於這個主題的相關經文,請參閱:

箴言2717

27:17 鐵磨鐵,磨出刃來;朋友相感(原文是磨朋友的臉)也是如此。

傳道書 49-12

4:9 兩個人總比一個人好,因為二人勞碌同得美好的果效。
4:10 
若是跌倒,這人可以扶起他的同伴;若是孤身跌倒,沒有別人扶起他來,這人就有禍了。
4:11 
再者,二人同睡就都暖和,一人獨睡怎能暖和呢?
4:12 
有人攻勝孤身一人,若有二人便能敵擋他;三股合成的繩子不容易折斷。馬太福音28:19 所以,你們要去,使萬民作我的門徒,奉父、子、聖靈的名給他們施洗(或譯:給他們施洗,歸於父、子、聖靈的名)。

哥林多前書3:9

因為我們是與 神同工的;你們是 神所耕種的田地,所建造的房屋。

以弗所書2:10

我們原是他的工作,在基督耶穌堻y成的,為要叫我們行善,就是 神所預備叫我們行的。

FINDING GOOD PEOPLE – AND NOT MEDDLING

 

By Robert J. Tamasy

 

There are different types of workers; some need close supervision while others do not. Some need very specific instructions on how to proceed with a task or project, others are content to receive general guidelines about what is expected and the latitude to determine how to proceed from there.

 

The challenge for the effective leader is to understand what each employee requires to be able to perform most productively, provide what is needed, and understand how closely to supervise the work. Many years ago, then U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt stated, “The best executive is one who has sense enough to pick good people to do what needs to be done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.”

 

This is because there are also different types of leaders. Some prefer rolling up their sleeves and getting directly involved; others like to offer close supervision; and still others delegate work assignments and trust their staff to get the job done, checking back only if they have questions or need further instruction.

 

My own working style has always leaned toward minimum of structure and freedom to determine the best way to approach my work. I have had supervisors who demonstrated confidence, giving assignments and letting me do them my own way. Other bosses, however, chose to keep close tabs on what I was doing. Some even micromanaged my work, which I found annoying, even disconcerting. I observed that other people, however, needed closer management. Clearly, we cannot lead everyone exactly the same way.

 

So, as Roosevelt said, good leaders understand how to choose the right people and then discern how much direction they need, without being meddlesome. The Scriptures address this important balance:

 

Know the ones you lead. Leaders know what they want to accomplish. They also should strive to know and understand those through whom those goals will be accomplished. Be sure you know the condition of your flocks, give careful attention to your herds…. the lambs will provide you with clothing, and the goats with the price of a field. You will have plenty of goats’ milk to feed your family(Proverbs 27:23-27).

Demonstrate concern and interest in those you lead. Jesus used the metaphor of the shepherd to explain His commitment to His followers. Good leaders are wise to observe His example. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. The hired hand is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away…. I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me – just as the Father knows me and I know the Father – and I lay down my life for the sheep(John 10:11-15).

Recognize the uniqueness of everyone you lead. Everyone on a team has different gifts, talents and experience. Recognizing their unique contributions enables the leader to entrust each of them with responsibility – and authority – commensurate with what they have to offer. Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. Now if the foot should say, ‘Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,’ it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. And if the ear should say, ‘Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,’ it would not for that reason stop being part of the body…(1 Corinthians 12:12-26).

Reflection/Discussion Questions

 

1.    What kind of worker are you? Do you prefer a lot of freedom in how you pursue your tasks, or do you like ongoing direction and support from those to whom you report?

 

 

 

 

2.    How does a good leader go about selecting the right people for what needs to be done, as Roosevelt suggested? Once those individuals are chosen and brought to the team, how can the leader avoid meddling in what they are doing?

 

 

 

 

3.    Do you think it is easy to discern what people need to perform their jobs most effectively, as the passage from Proverbs says we should do? Why or why not?

 

 

 

 

4.    Why is it important for people to sense their leaders genuinely care for them and have their best interests at heart? Do you agree this is even necessary? Explain your answer.
