■NHKラジオ 実践ビジネス英語 New Leadership (3) 10/9 2009


In a nutshell, I profess servant leadership.

That sounds like an oxymoron.

Sometines a well-timed joke or funny aside can really build
bridges between people.

That's just a way of describing a leadership style based on
bucking conventional wisdom and not going with the flow.

profess, 公言する、明言する
If you profess a feeling, opinion, or belief, you express it.

ex) a right to profess their faith in Islam.

oxymoron, 矛盾語法、撞着語法
If you describe a phrase as an oxymoron, you mean that what
it refers to combines two opposite qualities or ideas and
therefore seems impossible. [TECHNICAL]

ex) This has made many Americans conclude that business
ethics is an oxymoron.

well-timed, タイミングのいい
A well-timed action or comment is done or made at the most
appropriate or suitable time.

ex) He built the company through a string of well-timed

funny aside, おもしろい余談
An aside is something that you say that is not directly
connected with what you are talking about.

ex) The pace of the book is leisurely, with enjoyable
literary and historical asides.

buck conventional wisdom, これまでの常識に逆らう
If you buck the trend, you obtain different results from
others in tha same area. If you buck the system, you get
what you want by breaking or ignoring the rules.

ex) While other newspapers are losing circulation, we are
bucking the trend.

その他にも、次も押さえておきたい。[誌面の都合上省略] ★は重要表現
elaborate, 詳しく述べる、説明する
go with the flow, 人と同じ事をする、周囲に同調する
larger than life, 実物より大きい、現実よりよい
have the guts and the humility, 勇気と謙虚さを持つ
