Alex 总结马斯克的六点建议

Elon reportedly send this mail to Tesla employees:

  1. Avoid large meetings Large meetings waste valuable time & energy
  • They discourage debate
  • People are more guarded than open
  • There’s not enough time for everyone to contribute Don’t schedule large meetings unless you’re certain they provide value to everyone
  1. Leave a meeting if you’re not contributing If a meeting doesn’t require your:
  • Input
  • Value
  • Decisions Your presence is useless. It’s not rude to leave a meeting. But it’s rude to waste people’s time.
  1. Forget the chain of command Communicate with colleagues directly. Not through supervisors or managers. Fast communicators make fast decisions. Fast decisions = competitive advantage.

  2. Be clear, not clever Avoid nonsense words and technical jargon. It slows down communication. Choose words that are:

  • Concise
  • To the point
  • Easy to understand Don’t sound smart. Be efficient.
  1. Ditch frequent meetings There’s no better way to waste everyone’s time. Use meetings to:
  • Collaborate
  • Attack issues head-on
  • Solve urgent problems But once you resolve the issue, frequent meetings are no longer necessary.
  1. Use common sense If a company rule doesn’t:
  • Make sense
  • Contribute to progress
  • Apply to your specific situation Avoid following the rule with your eyes closed. Don’t follow rules. Follow principles.
