Exercise 70

Read and translate.

Bruce is definitely a sociable man. He has a lot of friends because he is always cheerful, reliable and ready to help anyone in need. When it comes to dangerous situations, Bruce always acts quite bravely. For example, a few weeks ago he saved a little boy’s life by pulling him out of the path of a speeding truck. When it comes to giving advice, he is always very helpful and supportive. However, he can be rather aggressive, especially when he is driving – sometimes he drives so carelessly that his friends are too frightened to get in the car with him.

Exercise 76

Read and translate.

Effectiveness of a manager’s activity depends on certain important skills. These skills can be divided into seven different categories: conceptual, decision making, analytic, administrative, communicational, interpersonal and technical.

1. A conceptual skillis the ability of a manager to see the “general picture” of an organization. Managers must understand how their duties and the duties of other managers fit together to plan their activity in a proper way and get the required results. This skill is very important for top managers because it helps them plan “super goals” and develop proper strategies for the whole organization.

2. A decision making skillis the ability of a manager to choose the best course of actions of two or more alternatives. A manager must decide the following:

1) What objectives and goals must be reached?

2) What strategy must be implemented?

3) What resources must be used and how they must be distributed?

4) What kind of control is needed?

In short, managers are responsible for the most important decisions which are required to carry out any organizational activity.

3. An analytic skillis the ability to determine the most important problem of many other problems and identify the causes of each problem before implementing the proper action plan. This ability is especially important for top managers because they have to solve complex problems.

4. An administrative skillis the ability of a manager to keep the organizational rules specified for the production progress, within a limited budget, and coordinate the flow of information and paper work in this group and in other groups.

5. A communicational skillis the ability of a manager to share his ideas and opinions with other people both orally and in writing. This skill is a decisive factor of a manager’s success. Some investigators show that top managers and middle managers spend approximately 80% (percent) of their work time communicating with each other.

Thus, a communicational skill enables managers to hold meetings, write clear letters and explanatory notes, make reports, etc.

6. An interpersonal skill (psychological skill)is ability to deal effectively with other people both inside and outside the organization. It is the ability to understand the needs and motives of other people. This skill is very important for a good psychological atmosphere for successful activity in the common work in future. If the interpersonal relations are good, a manager will be successful in getting a support in the development and implementation of organizational plans.

7. A technical skillis a specific competence to accomplish a task. The lower is a manager’s level in the organization, the closer is his/her connection with the production process. Thus first–line managers have the closest connection with the production process. They need high technical skills to provide technical guidance for the subordinates. Top managers don’t need these skills as much as first–line managers but the knowledge of the technical sphere is useful for all managers.
