Describe your leadership skills
Demonstrate your ability to convince others to express desirable behaviour and take specific action. You pride yourself on leading by example. Integrate one or more of the following answers into your description: “being able to effectively persuade, motivate, lead, empower others, negotiate, act positively, create opportunities and influence others.”
Tell me how you coach and develop talent
This is another way of asking how you manage people, with a twist. You always strive for positive reinforcement in your coaching with direct and timely feedback. You have a commitment to learning and treat each person how you would want to be treated (good old Golden rule). Close with examples of people you have hired, trained and promoted to greater responsibilities, and how great it made you feel.
What is your greatest accomplishment?
Does the interviewer mean personal or business? Ask the qualifier and if the answer is “both,” great; if it is “pick one over the other in rank,” go with business — maybe a major promotion that was a culmination of all your hard work, accomplishments and dedication. Steer clear of mentioning the birth-of-your-kid answer in a business interview; though it may be true (and it probably should be), keep in mind that you are interviewing for a professional job.
