  1. 1.

    When are your leadership skills the most effective?

      How to Answer

      When you have a great relationship with the individuals you are leading, your leadership skills will be the most effective. Show the interviewer that you recognize a great relationship starts with clear communication, trust, and honesty. Tell the interviewer that you spend time genuinely getting to know your team.

      For instance, perhaps you like to understand what activities they have going on both inside and outside of work, their kids' names, or if they have any pets. Building a relationship with your team will ensure that you can frequently and genuinely ask them how they are doing. The more comfortable they are, the better chance they will come to you for help in the workplace when they need it.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "My leadership skills are the most effective when my relationship with the employee isn't just a surface connection. I want to have true knowledge of their life and a good understanding of their career goals. When my employees know that I can help them to achieve their goals, they are more likely to be an engaged part of the team."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I feel that my leadership skills are directly related to the happiness and engagement of my team. I spend a lot of time making sure that my team of staff are happy, confident, and invested in their jobs."

      Great outlook. You are speaking to employee retention and client-centeredness which are highly desirable to your interviewer.

      "I believe my leadership skills are most effective when my team reflects shared happiness and effectiveness. I invest time and effort in each of my team members; I believe happy employees are more productive and are retained for a longer period."
