最近我遇到一个人’s looking for a new opportunity (read: they’re unemployed). When I asked them what kind of work they were looking for, they said they wanted to be a 领导.
It took me a few moments to process the reply. I hadn’t really spent a lot of time considering it. Is being a 领导 an 占用?
I mean, 领导s exist in all different kinds of organizations – big/small, public/private, for profit/not-for-profit. In a wide variety of industries – tech, health care, hospitality, transportation, etc. That leads me to believe that being a 领导 isn’t a totally nebulous term. There’s an expectation a 领导 in an organization has to be a 领导 at 某事。这意味着您需要具备某种技术知识才能成功。
So needless to say, I’m struggling with 领导 as an 占用.
然后，《哈佛商业评论》博客发表了一篇关于管理是一种职业的文章。您可以 在这里查看 –这是一个发人深省的帖子。幸运的是，它使我的想法又复杂了一层。
Is being a 领导 an 占用?
Are being a 领导 and a manager the same thing?
Can manager be an 占用 and 领导 not? Or vice versa?
也许我的一部分’我面临的挑战是’来自候选人。多年来，公司一直围绕着哲学问题– what’s more important, having 领导ship skills or 行业经验？关于是否应该雇用态度和技能培训的整个想法。不知何故，这听起来与候选人不同。
I’d love to hear your thoughts 上 this. It has such implications for our companies – would you hire a proven 领导 with no industry or technical experience? And is that different than hiring a manager with no technical experience?
