Great information! I am currently unemployed and have interviewed for VP, COO roles, so this was very helpful. However, regardless if how man years I have in leadership, and how much I try to clearly show that on my resume, I still get asked about my leadership style and at times this is challenging to answer because I don't know what answer they want, OR, what they're looking for.
How do I best answer this question? What do employers need to hear?
Thank you so much again for your podcast. Very helpful.
Hi Sonya, when I look for leadership skills I look for someone who Is always examining the status quo, and then suggests, initiates and executes new solutions, either independently or by leading a team (regardless if the team is made up of colleagues or direct reports or outsourced). I am always looking for leaders who are not just looking to get the task at hand done, but figure out how to scale it for growth and efficiencies.
Hope this helps! Amy
I am in transition at the moment. It is wonderful to hear success stories, keeping positive while looking for a new position is difficult to maintain. There are a lot of ups and downs!
You keys to the interview and speaking CEO are valuable insights to remember when preparing.
Thank you for the positive attitude to boost my own morale!
I am currently in transition and looking for a leadership position. As a previous Executive, I find it very challenging landing a new executive role. I can relate to what Amy experienced.
