迈兰制药CEO:抓住机会,加倍努力

制药公司高管海瑟•布莱什奉劝职场新人:不要指望一进入公司就能当上总裁;抓住眼前的机会,充分利用这些机会,要比周围的人更加努力地工作。

Heather Bresch has been at the helm of pharmaceutical-maker Mylan (MYL) since 2012. During her time as the Fortune 500 company's CEO, she's overseen a $1.6 billion acquisition of India's Agila Specialties and recently helped the School Access to Emergency Epinephrine Act, which will both boost Mylan's profits and save children's lives, get signed into law.

海瑟•布莱什从2012年开始执掌迈兰制药公司(Mylan)。身为《财富》500强公司的CEO,她带领公司以16亿美元收购了印度药企Agila Specialties,还在近期帮助《学校获取应急肾上腺素法案》(School Access to Emergency Epinephrine Act)获得了通过。这项法案不仅可以增加迈兰制药的利润,也能挽救更多孩子们的生命。

Fortune's Most Powerful Women started as a list in 1998, kicked off its annual Summit the following year, and has since become a community of the preeminent women in business, government, philanthropy, education, and the arts. This weekly Q&A features one MPW's personal take on leadership, aspirations, and (of course) balance.

《财富》(Fortune)最具影响力商界女性( Most Powerful Women)榜单始于1998年,次年开始召开年度峰会,这个活动如今已经成为商界、政府、慈善、教育和艺术界女性的一次盛会。每周的最具影响力商界女性个人问答专栏将关注领导力、期望等问题,当然也会关注平衡问题。

1. What is the best advice you ever received?

1. 您获得过的最好建议是什么?

One of my mentors taught me the importance of getting out of your comfort zone. She taught me that sometimes you can see more from the edge than from the middle, and that sometimes it takes looking at something from the extreme to get to the right place in the center.

我的一位导师让我知道了走出舒适区的重要性。她教导我,有时候站在边缘比在中间看到的更多,有时候,要想走到中间的正确位置,必须先从极端的位置进行观察。

2. What would you say to a group of young people looking to enter the tough job market?

2. 对于在当前不景气的就业市场中寻找工作的年轻人,您有什么建议?

Don't expect to come into the company as the president; take the opportunities that come your way and make the most of them by working harder than everyone around you.

不要指望一进入公司就能当上总裁;抓住眼前的机会,充分利用这些机会,要比周围的人更加努力地工作。

3. What currently excites you most about your industry?

3. 您所在的行业目前最令您兴奋的地方是什么?

The health care industry is ready to be redefined and, in fact, must be redefined in order to meet today's challenges and the rapidly changing policy environment. I believe Mylan has a unique opportunity to lead the way in redefining this industry, for instance by driving access to affordable, high-quality medicine for all and by engaging the consumer in their health care decision making.

健康护理行业正面临一场变革,而且事实上,这个行业也必须进行变革,才能应对当前的挑战和迅速变化的政策环境。我相信迈兰制药拥有极其难得的机会来引领这次变革,例如提供价格实惠、高质量的药品,以及邀请消费者参与健康护理决策等。

4. What was the most important thing you learned in school?

4. 您从校园学到的最重要的东西是什么?

How much I didn't know. I grew up in a small town in West Virginia and had a pretty limited worldview. At school, I majored in international relations, which for the first time gave me perspective on how big the world was -- a world that had felt very small prior to going to college.

校园让我知道了自己不懂的还有很多。我在西弗吉尼亚的一个小镇里长大,所以我的眼界非常有限。我在学校里学的专业是国际关系,它让我第一次知道了这个世界有多大——在上大学之前,我一直认为世界非常小。

5. What do you do for fun?

5. 您的消遣活动是什么?

Cooking is my favorite form of stress relief. I love being in the kitchen and around the dinner table with my family. I also try to go horseback riding when I have time on weekends.

我最喜欢的减压方式是烹饪。我喜欢待在厨房里,喜欢与家人围坐在餐桌旁边。周末有时间的话,我还会尝试骑马。

6. What business or technology person do you admire most? Why?

6. 您最崇拜哪一位商界或科技界人物?为什么?

I have a lot of admiration for Bill Gates. While he is of course a brilliant and innovative business leader, what separates him from others like him is his Foundation. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is an organization that I have tremendous respect for due to its willingness to tackle really tough problems, take risks, and measure results in meaningful ways. Historically, when philanthropists set up their foundations, the founders were willing to take risks, but over time these foundations became institutions concerned primarily about the perpetuity of the foundation. Gates has taken a different approach, and I admire that.

我最崇拜比尔•盖茨。他确实是一位出色的、富有创新精神的商业领袖,而让他与众不同的是他的基金会。我非常尊敬比尔和梅琳达•盖茨基金会(The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation),因为它愿意去解决真正棘手的问题,敢于承担风险,而且以一种有意义的方式来衡量结果。历史上,慈善家刚刚成立基金会的时候,创办人往往愿意承担风险。但随着时间的推移,这些基金会变成了只关心自己能否永久存续的机构。而盖茨却采取了一种截然不同的方式,所以我很钦佩他。

7. What other companies do you admire? Why?

7. 您还崇拜其他哪些公司?为什么?

I admire companies who have reinvented themselves and transformed from a business on the verge of extinction into something new and thriving. It takes a lot of courage and innovation to rethink the status quo and become something different.

我很崇拜那些能够自我革新的公司,它们从濒临破产的边缘,转变成一家全新的公司,哇而且一天比一天繁荣。重新思考现状,转变发展思路,这需要很大的勇气和创新精神。

8. What is one trait every entrepreneur needs more today than ever?

8. 相比以前,如今的创业者更需要具备哪一种品质?

Agility and speed. We operate in an incredibly fast-paced global environment where information and ideas flow freely with no geographic boundaries. If you don't bring a great idea to life quickly, a competitor -- somewhere in the world -- will jump ahead of you.

机敏和速度。当前的全球环境节奏日益加快,信息与创意自由传播,不再有地理上的界限。如果不能迅速实现一个伟大的创意,就可能有竞争对手(可能在世界任何地方)抢在你的前面占领先机。

9. What was your first job?

9. 您的第一份工作是什么?

My first job was bagging ice and stocking shelves at my family's grocery store. I started my career at Mylan 22 years ago as a data entry clerk.

我的第一份工作是在自家经营的食品杂货店里装冰袋和摆货架。22年前,我开始在迈兰制药工作,第一份工作是数据录入员。

10. What's your take on the "having it all" debate?

10. 对于“拥有一切”的争论,您有什么看法?

My first issue with the "having it all" debate is that it shouldn't just be a discussion about women. It shouldn't have anything to do with gender -- no one has it all. For me, it is all about balancing priorities and juggling. In order to manage work, life, family, etc., I'm constantly juggling and making sure that all the balls stay in the air.

对于“拥有一切”的争论,我的第一个问题是这不应该仅限于对女性的讨论。它不应涉及性别——没有人能够拥有一切。对我而言,“拥有一切”就是平衡优先顺序和努力应对。为了管理工作、生活、家庭等等,我一直在努力,确保面面俱到。
