Question 2 of 25
Tell me about a situation in which you had to work with fellow team members who did not like you.
Professional Answers Preview
"When I first started in my current role, I was replacing a very beloved manager who had retired. The team that I was given was not happy about the change and they initially set out to give me a hard time. I addressed it within the first week, acknowledging that I had big shoes to fill. I believe that the team respected this honest approach and slowly everyone came around once they realized that I had their best interest in mind."
"Everybody likes me! (Smile!) In all seriousness, I worked with someone in my last role who had a very different style than I lead with. For whatever reason, they were unwilling to make the effort to adapt to rapid change or the fast pace in which the team worked. I was always asking questions to learn the most I could about the business, while this person would have preferred everything stay status quo. I consider myself to be fairly perceptive to people around me and took it upon myself to approach this person in private in an effort to build a relationship with them outside of the work group. It helped."
Being a manager, you may sometimes come across personalities that simply do not mesh with yours. Talk to the interviewer about a time that you had to lead someone who may not have liked you. How did you handle the situation?
