How to Answer
Consulting firms like RiseSmart, that specialize in the HR side of businesses, often get called upon to analyze and assess businesses, their staffing and their overall practices. Part of the assessment phase can involve staffing numbers and getting an organization to the optimum number of employees. Because you may have to deal with layoffs or single terminations, your interviewer will be looking to hopefully hear that you have some experience with this during your career up to this point. Be sure to speak openly and honestly about your experiences while walking them through important things that are necessary during a termination or a layoff.

How to Answer
As a consultant to organizations in the midst of a change management process, accountability should be a priority for the leadership team and one of your tasks as the consultant is to help foster this with the entire staff. With accountability comes transparency, so be sure to focus on this aspect in your answer. Talk about why you feel that accountability and transparency are important and how you would make sure that the leaders you work with keep these things at the top of mind during their process.
