صحبت با همکاران در اداره
Talking to Co-Workers
اگر شما جلسه یا ملاقاتی را در اداره از دست دادید می توانید از همکارانتان در مورد این که چه مسائلی در آن اتفاق افتاد سوال کنید
"I missed the meeting. Can you fill me in?"
"I had a doctor's appointment so I missed the meeting. What happened?"
"I couldn't make it to the meeting today. Anything interesting I should know about?"
"I missed the meeting. Was there anything new?"
زمان دیگری که معمولا با همکارانتان صحبت می کنید وقتی است که رئیس خود را دوست ندارید یا رفتار های نامعقول از او مشاهده کرده اید در این گونه مواقع توجه کنید که همکارتان مورد اعتماد باشد در غیر این صورت صحبت های شما را به رئیستان انتقال می دهد
"Matt looks pretty upset right now. Do you know what's going on?"
"Did something happen recently? Matt looks pissed off."
"I think Matt is mad about something. Do you know what it could be?"
هنگامی که رئیستان با شما درست برخورد نمی کند نیز می توانید از همکارانتان سوال کنید که رفتار رئیس با انها چگونه است
"Matt talks to me like he is mad all the time. Does he do that to you?"
"Does Matt talk to you like he is upset? Or is it just me?"
"It's not you at all. He talks to me that way too."
"Matt is way too moody."
"If he knew what he was doing, we wouldn't be in this mess."
"What is wrong with Matt these days?"
"He is having one of those days again. I think his manager just gave him a hard time."
"What do you think about our manager?"
"He gets too mad easily and he doesn't really help us out that much. What do you think?"

Talking to the Boss - Interactive Practice
A: "Hi Matt, I finished the assignment on the documents. Did you get a chance to review them?"
B: "Yeah. I already reviewed them. It was pretty good."
A: "Since it was my first project, I was wondering if I can get some feedback."
B: "Well, you finished the project on time. And seeing how it was your first assignment, you did very well."
A: "Thanks. If it wasn't my first assignment, where do you think I need to improve?"
B: "That's a fair question... I think you could have spent a little more time documenting the difference between Process A and Process B. You showed a lot of the similarities, but lacking a little on the differences."
A: "I'll keep that in mind. How about the structure? I changed the template a little because I wanted to add a section for recommendation."
B: "I liked the addition. Usually people just enter it into the comment section on the bottom but having a clear section makes it stand out. That was good."
A: "Was there anything else? I like to get feedback early so I can improve."
B: "No problem. Everything else on the assignment was great. The only other tip I can give you is sending me more updates. If I knew you were stuck on section C for a while, I could have saved you a lot of time. So keep me aware on your status."
A: "That makes sense. I'll do that. Thanks for the feedback."
B: "Don't mention it. And good job on the assignment."
A: "Hi Mark. I completed Project A and didn't have anything else to work on. Should I find something to do, or did you have something lined up?"
B: "I won't have another assignment for you until next Monday. What will you be doing until then?"
A: "I'm not sure, I was thinking about investigating the reporting issue we are having, but that's a low priority now. But if there is nothing else to do, it might be good to finally fix that."
B: "How about John. He told me that he needed a little help on Project C. Why don't you ask him if he still needs help. If not, then check out the reporting issue."
A: "John? I've been meaning to talk to you about him."
B: "What's the problem?"
A: "I don't want to be out of line, but he's very difficult to work with. He looks over my shoulder all the time and doesn't like how I am doing things."
B: "Yeah. He is like that. I appreciate your feedback, and you are not the first to bring this up. Although he is difficult, he does get a lot of work done around here."
A: "I completely agree, and I will continue to work with him as well as I can. I just thought I should let you know instead of keeping it bottled up."
B: "I appreciate your honesty. But for now, you're going to have to tolerate his methods a little longer. I'll see if the director is willing to have a talk with John about this problem."
A: "Ok. Well, I'll go see what type of help John needs. If there is nothing, I'll work on the reporting problem. Either way, I'll send you an email letting you know what I am working on."
B: "That would be perfect. Thanks."
A: "Thanks. I'll talk to you later."
B: "Ok. Bye

"John wants me to do the payroll analysis. He said he needs it by end of week. But didn't you want the employee headcount finished by Friday? I can't finish both. What should I do first?"
"I'm having some problems with John lately. He is very critical and puts me down in public. I don't know what I am doing wrong so I don't know where I need to improve. What do you think I should do about this?"
"John has been very difficult to work with. He is very bossy and expects everything to be done his way. I have been tolerating it because he is a manager, but some of his methods are wasting a lot of time. I always suggest other ways, but he will not hear me out."
