BEP 139 INT – Sailing Idioms: Company Performance (Part 2)

This is second of a two-part Business English Pod series on business idioms related to the sea, ships, and sailing.

You’ll often hear sailing idioms used in business discussions. A company is compared to a ship and employees are the ship’s crew.

In the last episode, two colleagues named Lakisha and Warren were talking about the decline of Trussock’s, an engineering firm. They felt that Trussock’s problems were caused by the new CEO’s poor management. It seemed he had no concrete business plan and employees were confused and very unhappy. Today, Lakisha and Warren discuss ways that Trussock’s could become a viable, or successful, company again.

Listening Questions:

1) What does Lakisha think should happen with Trussock’s management?
2) How might Trussock’s employees help the company’s situation?
