    Hi Jeffrey!


    1. Communication

    Describe a time when your ability to communicate effectively in a highly sensitive situation helped to produce a successful outcome?

    Probing Questions

    • What was the situation and what made it sensitive?
    • What aspects of your communication did you focus on to help produce a positive outcome?
    • What was the outcome?

    2.  Flexibility

    Describe a time when you sought an alternative approach in a situation where the usual approach was not working.

    Probing Questions
    • How was the usual approach not effective in this case?
    • How did you adapt your approach or implement a new approach?
    • Were you successful in addressing the situation in this way?
    • What was the final outcome?

  • I love this question - and would highly recommend ensuring these questions are tied to your DEFINED Keys to Success within your culture (no more trusting your gut!).

    Ex. If company values Customer Service. 

    Question: Tell me about a time that you delivered legendary customer service?  What was the situation? What happened?  When the person tells a behavior-based story (past behavior predicts future behavior) that sounds like your definition - BOOM.  Leaning toward a culture fit, no guessing. (Obviously needing to check other Keys to Success also...but on the right path!)
