  • 1. At Vynamic, our clients are looking for us to come in and provide sound leadership in their strategic planning and growth planning processes. What leadership style would you bring to our clients?

      How to Answer

      As a consultant at Vynamic, an expectation from clients is for you to bring a sound leadership style to their team and a working knowledge of effective growth and strategic planning processes. While trying to avoid formal labels, talk about your leadership style as a consultant and explain why your style would most benefit clients. Try to focus on keywords that your leadership style brings, like collaboration and support.

      1st Answer Example

      "Having worked with and led large teams in the development of formal growth plans for organization, I see my role as a consultant and my leadership with clients as being team-based and collaborative. My job is to lead transformational change within the organization because we will ultimately be trying something new with them and implementing change into the future. From my style of leadership comes improvement through a team based effort and I really think the clients here at Vynamic would benefit greatly from my style."

      2nd Answer Example

      "As a consultant, I'd definitely employ a very democratic approach with your clients. They will be looking for me to provide the blueprint and the road map for success for them and then I would look to delegate and leave responsibility for implementing on them. My approach would be educational, resourceful and would preach teamwork among the entire project team. When I've utilized this approach in the past, it was very well received and helped lead to the success of several large projects."

  • 2. When have you contributed to an effort to obtain a corporate goal?

      How to Answer

      Engaged employees are always the most productive. Assure the interviewer that you are capable of being an involved team member by assisting, in some way, to the end goal of the corporation.

      1st Answer Example

      "My most recent employer had an extreme interest in giving back to the community. So much so that we, as a group, logged our volunteer hours and it was treated as another KPI. We would review our community contributions on a quarterly basis. Our goal was always to hit a minimum 500 volunteer hours per quarter which meant that everyone would volunteer one day per month. It was a great initiative and one that I happily participated in."

      2nd Answer Example

      "Everyday! The corporate goal is always my primary driver, in my current position. To be successful in my position I need to always be in tune with what my employer is trying to achieve, and be an active participant."

  • 3. Here at Vynamic, you may be asked to work on the corporate governing structure and its effectiveness for a client. How would you measure the effectiveness of a board of directors?

      How to Answer

      As people have more and more access to knowledge and information, investors, regulators and other key stakeholders are demanding high level results from the boards of most organizations. Because of this fact, many clients at Vynamic seek out their services to measure the effectiveness of their boards. If you have direct experience in evaluating and measuring the effectiveness of a board, talk about that experience. If you don't have direct experience, talk about the need for evaluation to go beyond measuring if the board performed their responsibilities and dive into further measures that truly impact the organization.

      1st Answer Example

      "If I was asked by a client to measure the effectiveness of their board, I would first seek to find out if any predetermined measures for success had been developed. If there had, we could look at calculating success in those areas as a starting point. Then, whether they had already established measures or not, I would use my expertise to delve into measuring aspects managing operations of the business and the corporate structure of the organization. These measures are often overlooked by corporate boards and are imperative to the successes of any business."

      2nd Answer Example

      "I am a firm believer that measuring a corporate governing structure must ultimately be led from within, so I would see myself as a true consultant in giving board leaders the knowledge and tools to lead a successful evaluation of their work. In my experience and work in the past, corporate governance is best measured on the following three items: how they lead, how they manage and how they contribute to the organizations success. I have steadfast measuring techniques for these items that I'd love to bring to your clients here at Vynamic."

  • 4. A key component to success here at Vynamic is building solid relationships with new clients. How do you effectively get to know new people and lay the groundwork for a long lasting relationship?

      "When I was coming out of my MBA, I knew I wanted to start gaining experience in consulting. Therefore, I offered my services to several non-profits in several different areas of their business to help them give back to the community."

      This answer is good but feels a bit incomplete and also emphasizes too quickly the benefit you received by donating your services (instead of focusing first on just helping others). Consider giving more details around the types of non-profits you helped and what your impact was on them, in addition to rephrasing your answer so the focus is first on how you helped others and second on how this helped you.

      "When I finished my MBA, I knew I wanted to help others so I decided to offer my consulting services for free to several non-profits in the area. By donating my time and expertise, the non-profits were able to focus on their missions of giving back to the community while I also gained valuable consulting experience."

      "In my current role, I work with a Pharmacy manager who is very resistant to new technical workflows, especially when reviewing in group settings. After learning this, any time I present on new technology or revised processes, I make sure to set up a brief meeting with him ahead of the group meeting to walk through the new workflow and answer any questions he might have. By taking the time to empathize with him about the difficulties that come with a change in a 1:1 meeting, I can keep the group meetings on track and ensure that he is confident in the new process."

      "When __________ hired a controlled substance officer, I noticed that he was given the task to review all controlled substance medication waste transactions daily and identify any discrepancies. This meant reviewing almost 300 transactions per day! While I recommended implementing a platform to support this review in the long term, I also knew that the capabilities of excel are often overlooked. In the short term, I worked with the officer to develop an excel based calculator that would reduce the number of waste transactions reviewed by roughly 80%. This brought significant time back to his day and also allowed for real-time reporting to leadership."

I've worked with leaders who have wanted to be involved in every work function, and for this leadership style, I would take a direct approach and emphasize teamwork while assigning clear roles and objectives to be met by each role.

      Good answer. You correctly define different types of leaders: those who are very involved and those who are more hands-off. Other techniques you can mention to the interviewer and use when working with a leader who is very involved include setting up early collaboration sessions with them to plan and determine goals and to proactively give them frequent updates. When it comes to hands-off leaders, outside of the suggestions you gave, you can also tell the interviewer that you would initiate frequent contact to keep them engaged and informed throughout projects.

      "A situation arose where a group of Pharmacists were very distraught with leadership's lack of communication with them regarding a patient safety event. However, having worked closely with leadership, I knew that they were overwhelmed with fixing the problem and were unaware of their staff's discontent. In times of conflict, it is my opinion that clear communication and agreement to systemic change are critical between both parties.
