David: One of Vincent's biggest problems is his tendency to micro-manage everything. He sticks his nose into everything instead of leaving the day-to-day decisions to the guys who know what they're doing.
K: That's true. He also seems rather uncertain and indecisive about many things.
D: Yeah...we need a leader who can inspire us. The CEO needs to be a coach, not a referee. You know...not everyone is cut out to be a leader.
K: I think one of the primary skills a leader needs is the ability to listen.
David觉得 Vincent 最大的问题之一是喜欢 micro-manage 管得太细。He sticks his nose into everything. 不论什么事他都要插手，to stick one's nose into something 意思是插手某事。Ken 也说，Vincent 在很多问题上优柔寡断，而且不会听取意见。David 还说，not everyone is cut out to be a leader. 不是人人都能当领导的。to be cut out for something 意思是适合做某事。
D: Vincent is terrible at that. He frequently seems to completely misunderstand what we're trying to get across. Just between you and me, I've spoken to a few other board members and they say if there is a vote of no confidence, they'll vote "no."
K: But will Vincent be forced to resign if there is such a vote?
D: No...but it will do one of two things: one, it will serve as a wake-up call and he might change his style - or two: he might step down if he realizes he's lost the support of the board.
David已经跟其他一些董事会成员打过招呼，他们都表示，如果有不信任案，他们会投不信任票。这样可能会有两种结果，it will either serve as a wake-up call. 要么会给Vincent 敲响警钟，让他自觉改变管理风格，要么会让 Vincent 意识到，自己已经失去董事会的支持，自觉下台。
K: Shouldn't we try to find a way to give him a chance to avoid embarrassment?
D: Yes we should. I'll be writing him a private letter next week and expressing our thoughts on the matter. I'd appreciate it if you would sign the letter as well.
K: Humm...well, I guess that's the best way. We'll give him a chance to either improve or resign.
D: And if he rejects those options, we'll try a vote of no confidence.
K: Ok, David....I'm on board. Let's give it a shot.
Ken建议 give him a chance to avoid embarrassment 设法避免让Vincent难堪，David表示赞同，决定先给 Vincent写封私人信件，阐述他们的意见，希望Ken能在上面联署。Ken承认，这可能是最好的方式，说，I'm on board. 算我一个，Let's give it a shot. 咱们试试看。
