How to Nail an Interview for that Leadership Role
Yes, yes, yes, be yourself, ask questions etc. etc.
What, though, will make you really stand out?
These – play them one by one ideally starting with the 10…
10 – Be really upbeat and positive – act as-if you are already in the role – in a humble not arrogant way. Research – Linked In – and know each of the people interviewing and their hot buttons. Answer questions directly – use fewer words.
Jack – Have 3 top outcomes that the organisation want to achieve in your new role – share them ticking off the hot buttons that you know in advance – and say “As (title of role) I will deliver all of these – that is my personal promise to each of you.”
Queen – Present a checklist of your priority actions that you will begin working on day 1 – share this with them and say “That is what I suggest you need to do as an organisation in this area, whether it is me in the role, or not”.
King – People – Your top priority will be to unlock the skills, ideas and potential that people in your team already have.
Ace –Profit – Within one month of being in the role you will ensure that everything can be financially measured so you can focus on the areas that bring the greatest value to the company, and stop doing everything else.
Then once you’re in the role – Deliver!
With my love and best wishes to you all.
