      1st Answer Example

      "I would like to be the type of leader that inspires others to do the right thing. I want the people I am fortunate to lead to believe in taking pride in their work and working hard to continually improve. I have worked with mentors in the past that have inspired me to do things right and ensure the quality of my work, and I do the same for others. I find that these qualities foster healthy team dynamics.

      I would also like to be a fair, empathetic, and trustworthy leader. I want the individuals I lead to know they can always come to me for guidance and support. They can expect honesty and for me to have their best interest at heart.

      Finally, I think it is important to be a facilitative and collaborative leader. I do not always have the best ideas, but I am great at making a comfortable space for those with the best ideas to come together creatively."
