Customer Service Manager at Northwest Airlines

In addition, tell about your leadership skills and how you have used them in real life situations. Tell how you would develop subordinates and improve their functioning capabilities. And explain that you hold yourself accountable for results with no excuses.

Speak about creative solutions, employers appreciate when you are solution oriented as opposed to complaining and whining behaviors. You have to be able to mentor and develop your team in a positive direction and be able to pivot and re-direct when the road gets rough. Find the answer in every problem verses the problem in answer. But most important in an interview be yourself, don’t try to be someone you are not.

Be sure to be willing to learn, be a smart risk taker, communication is key both being an effective listener and effective how you interact and communicate whether email, phone, zoom, face to face or in meetings. Lead by example, show you can work under pressure, willingness to change to meet organizational goals and objectives, motivate and encourage team growth, and show that you can handle conflict resolution with all parties and make each side feel validated and heard and show how to move your team forward.

Risk Manager at United States Department Of The Navy

I am ready for a manager job because I have worked in traditionally male positions as a woman for 33 years. I have had various management experience working in the federal government but I also believe my first responsibility as a manager is to be a good leader. I will find ways to motivate others and inspire workers to work harder because they see the value in their work and love their job. This would be my first priority in working as a manager in any company. To lead by example and to motivate the work force.

If you don't have any prior management experience, you're going to have to sell them on your leadership skills gained through other means. Be sure to highlight any team projects wherein you had a leading role or were a primary contributor with influence. You can also touch on volunteer activities in which you served in a leadership role. Basically, you want them to see you as a capable leader.

Give some thought to your management style, too. You're going to be asked how you lead; be ready to answer! Are you a democrat or autocrat, a census-builder or a final-decision maker? Knowing how you're going to supervise people, some of whom may be peers, will show that you're truly interested in taking your career upward.

Lis Data Analyst And Level 3 Customer Support at Helix Diagnostics

First you must ask yourself "What have I done recently that exemplifies my leadership skills - my ability to mentor and train and my ability to communicate effectively to administration and to those that report to me.?" Now - take those same thoughts and put them into words that define your skills - it's important to remember that this isn't going to be so much about you as much as it is about what you can bring to the table. What you can do to help your team and the company be more successful? You'll be asked questions about you'd handle employee interaction problems. How you'd handle difficult conversations and disciplinary actions? How you'd communicate information to your team? What projects or collaborations have you completed that show off your leadership skills. Don't try to answer off the cuff. Be honest, without bragging, and show confidence. At then end of the day its all about being prepared - explain examples of performance - along with your ability to multi-task, switch priorities as projects and demands change, to work closely with team mates to ensure their success as well as your own and the company. Best of luck.

Tell them about your communication skills and conflict resolution skills. If you don't have many to talk about in your work experience you can use examples from your life, with friends and family.

Project Oriented Senior Manager

A manager must balance the people she supervises and the needs of the employer. You are no longer one of the staff but an extension of the ownership. Consequently you need to be prepared to make some tough decisions about your personnel.
