What is your leadership style?

How to Use

Interviewer: What is your leadership style?

Greg: I believe that people work best when they have a certain amount of freedom. I want to give my staff clear goals and direction, but I prefer to let them decide what is the best way to achieve that goal.

Interviewer: Why do you think this style is effective?

Greg: I think it helps motivate people to do their best. If you micromanage people or just order them to do things, then they will not feel valued and they will not produce solid work.

Interviewer: What would you do if a staff member did something that you disagreed with?

Greg: I would give them honest and direct feedback and I would listen to their ideas and opinions. Hopefully, we would be able to work together and come to an agreement about what should be done.

Interviewer: I see. It seems like your management style would fit our company culture quite well.

Greg: I am happy to hear that.
