Michelle's Answer #1
"I have worked with diverse groups of people most of my career, including my time in University. I am most comfortable, and happy, in this type of environment because it offers me unique learning opportunities. Our patient population is extremely diverse and it is important that our health care providers reflect this"
Michelle's Answer #2
"I am so glad you pointed out your need for diversity at Baptist Health South Florida, Inc.. I greatly value diversity. I grew up in a fairly homogeneous town in Montana. When I hit my 20's, it was so important to me to learn about other cultures. I worked with community volunteer organizations in Peru, inner-city Chicago, and Russia."

We take patient privacy and confidentiality very seriously. How do you keep up to date with all the changing regulations impacting patient privacy?
The interviewer needs to know that you know the HIPAA rules and regulations and that you also value privacy. You also need to demonstrate how you adapt to all of the changing regulations and learn what is going on.

Michelle's Answer #1
"Patient privacy is greatly important- one simple slip up can lead to a huge and costly violation for the company. In addition to the mandatory trainings our hospital has, I also subscribe to an e-newsletter on this topic so I don't miss anything."
Michelle's Answer #2
"I value patient confidentiality and the patients we take care of trust us to keep their information private. I take 60 minutes a week to read any relevant news and share that information with my team. I have Google alerts set up with key words so I don't miss anything."

Show the interviewer that it is possible for you to be a good team member, yet disagree with the leader from time to time. Explain that you believe everyone is entitled to their own professional opinion, yet capable of maintaining respect for each other at the same time.

Show that even if you disagree with the final decision they make, you support the direction the team is heading.

Michelle's Answer #1
"I think that it is possible to be a great team member, even when disagreeing with the leader. It's all in how you maintain respect for each other despite the difference in opinion."
Michelle's Answer #2
"I believe that being a good team member is more about attitude than it is about compatibility. You do not need to agree with everyone 100% of the time, to be effective in your job."

What is your greatest weakness?
Pick a weakness that is not a core skill for this position. You can be candid in your answer; recognizing that you aren't great at something and acknowledging your need to improve. Be sure to have an action plan in place for improving on this weakness.

Perhaps you are watching TED talks to gain skills in a particular area, reading the latest-and-greatest book on the subject, or maybe you are taking a seminar at a nearby community center. We are all human with our weaknesses, so don't be afraid to share yours!

Michelle's Answer #1
"I believe I could improve on some technical skills including Excel and Word. Currently I am at a beginner to intermediate level; however, I would be more comfortable at an advanced level. I have enrolled myself in an evening/weekend workshop for the next six weeks. We will see how stellar my skills are after that course!"
Michelle's Answer #2
"I know this will come off as cliche, but it's truthful. My weakness is in not delegating. I know what I want to be done and how I want it done, so it's often easier to do it myself. However, it can inhibit my ability to grow. I cannot take on every step of a project; I need to be able to give the task or a portion of it to another team member or direct report, let go of the control and know it will be taken care of. I've spoken with my current manager about it, and we've developed a system where he can call me out on the behavior since often I'm not aware of it. By bringing awareness to it at the moment, I find my propensity to hold onto control has decreased, so I'm certainly moving in the right direction."
Anonymous Answer
"My main weakness is take in additional tasks because I have difficulties saying No. My Greatest weakness is taking in additional task. Since I want to go above and beyond for my team and workplace. This can cause issues with time management with other task that needed to be completed. So in this situation I would finish completing easier task first then finish the difficult task last."
Rachelle's Answer
It would be great if you could include what you are doing to improve on this weakness. I have offered an example, below.
"My main weakness is that I have difficulties saying no. I take on extra tasks because I want to go above and beyond for my team and company; however, this can cause issues with time management. To improve on this weakness, I now take more time to ensure that I can fit the work in before I jump in and say yes."
