The interviewer wants to hear about a positive experience you have had with leadership. Think about a time when you led a sports team, led a college project, managed a store, or coached a little league team. These are all great examples! Share the situation in which you were leading, and discuss why you enjoyed the experience. Talk about the positive outcome that the group had, and explain that you would gladly lead again!
"Although I have never led in the workplace, I do take on a volunteer coordinator role on the weekends with the local animal shelter. I have qualities that would make a good leader. I am a keen listener; I understand how to look at the big picture without losing momentum with the small tasks. In that particular volunteer position, I have a great amount of success and find that other people respond to my approach very positively."
