好人怎么前进?
Conventional business wisdom has long held that the nice guy -- or gal -- won't get as far up the corporate ladder as the cutthroat competitor.
 
传统的商业经在很长一段时间内都认定好好先生(或女士)在职场晋升的斗争中会输给那些残酷的竞争对手。
Today's challenging economic times would seem to allow even less room for pleasantries in the business world.
 
如今越来越严峻的经济形势更使得那些老好人在商场无藏身之所。
But executive coach Russ C. Edelman, coauthor of "Nice Guys Can Get the Corner Office: Eight Strategies to Get Ahead Without Being a Jerk," believes otherwise.
 
但是"Nice Guys Can Get the Corner Office: Eight Strategies to Get Ahead Without Being a Jerk,"一书的作者,执行教练Russ C. Edelman则有不同的意见。
"The underlying element is balance -- you can't be a jerk, and you can't be too nice," says Edelman, who is a principal in a Boston-based consulting firm. "You have to be assertive and cordial."
 
波士顿一家咨询公司的主要负责人Edelman说:“最基本的要点是平衡性—你不要去做个混蛋,但是你也不用太好。你必须要非常自信、很热忱。”
Here are six of his strategies for how nice employees -- and their companies -- can finish first.
 
以下六条建议是他提出来的,是那些好员工和他们的公司首先可以做到的。
Warts and All
 
不隐瞒任何缺点
Rather than trying to seem perfect, being honest about your shortcomings in an interview or on the job can be perceived as an asset.
 
与其试图让自己看起来很完美,还不如在面试或工作中诚实的承认自己的缺点,这样的话别人才会认为你是有价值的员工。
"People need to maintain a level of awareness of their strengths and weaknesses. It's important from an interview perspective that you can be candid," says Edelman.
 
Edelman说:“人们需要对自己的优缺点有一定的认识。从面试官的角度来说你的坦率是很重要的。”
Set Limits
 
设置上限
You'll earn more respect from your boss and colleagues if you set appropriate limits, while pledging to support shared goals.
 
在承诺援助共同的目标时设置恰当的限度会让你的上司和同事更加尊重你。
"People laud the corporate hero -- the person going above and beyond -- but not corporate martyrs, who have killed themselves and potentially put the business in a compromised situation."
 
“人们会称赞公司的英雄-那个很厉害的人,但是不会称赞公司的殉难者,那些不仅让自己壮烈牺牲还给公司带来潜在性伤害的人。
