If I were to interview the people who have reported to you in the past, how would they describe your management style?
TIPS TO PREPARE
TOP ANSWERS
OUR COACH SAYS
Example #1
"I believe that my team would describe me as a pacesetter, or coach when it comes to my management style. I have strong expectations set for my team, and I motivate them to achieve these standards by showing my employees, rather than just telling."
Example #2
"At this point in my early management career, I have been emulating the actions of my management, and have taken the points that I like, implemented those, and eliminated the parts I did not like. My team has responded well to me, and I think they would describe me as an affiliative style leader. I like to try new ways to get my team members to bond with each other, creating a more cohesive team environment. We spend a lot of time together, so I believe it's important to establish trust and relationship among coworkers."
Example #3
"If asked, I believe my team would describe me as a Democratic style leader. I like to involve my team in the decision-making process and do not believe in a hierarchy type of leadership system. Even my newest team members should feel empowered."

About Our Approach to Q&As
Our interview questions are created by writers, most of whom have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with the companies, careers or schools they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We strive to match our experts' background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.
