Question 27 of 34

What is your style of leadership?

How to Answer

If you're leading well, you won't have just one leadership style. You'll mix and match to engage your team and meet your goals. Let the interviewer know you understand new challenges require new leadership skills, behaviors, and ways of communicating with your team. Do you monitor performance and provide feedback to your team? Do you prefer to stay out of the limelight and let team accept credit for results?

      Experienced

      "Through my career working closely and being responsible for the work of my assistants under me, I have been the type of leader that educates my staff and lets them work independently. My assistants know that I have an "open door" policy should they need to approach me and I never hesitate to give constructive feedback."
