Explain to the interviewer how you contribute to your team: "I am definitely a team player! I love working with my staff, because we communicate well and support each other during hectic times." Share any qualities of a team player that you feel you embody. Are you a good listener? How do you communicate with your staff? As a security manager, you may also want to draw on your leadership qualities. How do you set the standard for strong team?
Answer example
"Of course I'm a team player. As a leader, you have to lead from the front and be very collaborative. You have to model and demonstrate the behaviors that you want to see from your team. I enjoy collaborating with other people when I work in a team, and this is because I get satisfaction out of seeing a team succeed. When the entire team gets to have input, they feel invested in the outcome, and that creates a situation where their individual success becomes the team's success, which is a sum greater than its parts. When you see a team operate that way, it's very rewarding."
