Hire the Attitude, Train the Skills
雇佣态度,培训技能
Leverer 译     From: LinkedIn Pulse     By: Inge Geerdens     December 16, 2013 
【首发译文】雇佣态度,培训技能 - 杠杆使者Leverer - 杠杆力
 

如果你在考虑是否雇佣某人时,态度是最重要的条件之一。当然,技能也很重要,但是雇佣正确的技能但错误的态度将会让你非常头疼。所以,雇佣那些缺乏某些技能但有着正确的态度的人,这样你们便能一起成长。我的信条是“雇佣态度,培训技能”。

在这个周末,我发现了原因。

几乎在每一个星期天的晚上,我都会和我的同事喝一杯。当享受杯中美酒时,我们考虑着下一周的计划我们每词都去那个小酒馆,如今,那里的员工已经知道我们通常从一个简短的谈话开始。

这个周末,我的同事比我来的早几分钟,当我走进酒馆时,他正在和女服务生谈话。我介入到他们的谈话中听到她说:“噢,你真是一个悲观主义者呀!”悲观可不是我用来形容我同事的词儿,所以我开始继续往下听他们的谈话。

我同事合上了他手上的笔记本,说封面上写着“整个世界都被星期一填满了”,这是谈话的开端。我们的女服务生无法相信有谁会想要这样一个笔记本并在上面工作,而且还会有人热爱周一,因为她非常讨厌星期一。他向她解释说周一是一周里面最好的一天因为他们总是充满着新的机遇,它总是会让你觉得有机会重新开始。她不同意,她觉得星期一很无聊而且很压抑,因为你将开始慢慢一周的工作。而且她这么重复说了好几次。

我能唯一能够想到的是:“你能想想看你的办公室有这样的人吗?”当然,你无法期盼每个人随时随刻都很开心。有些时候人们很疲惫、心事重重或者就是很简单地心情很差。这在我身上也会发生。但是,如果你身边走动的人有的厌恶每一个星期一,原因是他或她仅仅就是不喜欢那一天,但这不可能不影响大氛围。老实说,甚至是这与女服务生简短的对话,我的心情就已经被感染了。

 

英文原文:

Attitude is one of the most important criteria if you are thinking about hiring someone. Sure, skills are important, but hiring the right skills with the wrong attitude will result in a lot of headaches. So hire someone who lacks some skills but has the right attitude, and you can grow together. My credo is ‘Hire the attitude, train the skills’.

And this weekend I rediscovered why.

Almost every Sunday evening, I have a drink with one of my colleagues. While enjoying a glass of wine, we look at the planning for the coming week. We go to the same pub every time, and the staff know us by now and often strike up a short conversation.

This weekend, my colleague arrived a few minutes before me, and when I entered he was talking with a waitress. I walked into their conversation and heard her say: “Oh, you are such a pessimist !” Pessimistic isn’t how I’d describe my colleague, so I started following their conversation.

Turns out the notebook my colleague had on him, saying "The world is filled with Mondays" on the cover, was the conversation starter. Our waitress couldn't believe that anyone would want such a notebook to work in and moreover, that someone truly loved Mondays as she hated them. He explained to her that Mondays are the best day of the week since they are always full of new opportunities, that they always feel like you are getting a chance to start over. She didn’t agree, she found Mondays boring and depressing because you have a full week of work ahead. And she repeated that several times.

And the only thing I could think was: "Can you imagine having someone like that in the office?" Of course you can’t expect everyone to be cheerful all the time. Sometimes people are tired or preoccupied or simply in a bad mood. This happens to me too. But if you have someone walking around that is annoyed every Monday because he or she just doesn’t like that day of the week, there is no way that won’t affect the general atmosphere. To be honest, even that short conversation with the waitress infected my mood.

What about you? Are you a ray of sunshine every Monday? Or do you have experience working with people showing this attitude at the beginning of the week? And how do you handle that? I would love to get your tips!
