Leadership Lounge: What top companies ask during executive interviews
In the past, whenever top companies wanted to hire their next leader, they knew what to look for: somebody with technical expertise and a proven track record of delivering financial returns.
But the world has changed. And so has what top companies expect from a leader.
While the ‘command and control’ hierarchical leader still exists and can deliver for a business, today’s future-proof organizations are increasingly looking for leaders who promote inclusion, diversity of thought, and individual empowerment through their leadership.
When done right, leaders are able to demonstrate emotional intelligence and open communication—Ingredients for visionary leaders.
But how do you get these skills across in an interview? You can’t just tell the interviewer that you have them. You have to be able to show them.
We invited four of our esteemed leadership advisors, Edward Mason, Mina Paul, Evan Sharp, and Nick Henderson into the Leadership Lounge to share how leaders can demonstrate that they have what it takes to be an effective, visionary leader.
Tune in to discover what the core leadership traits of a successful leader are, and why it’s important that as a leader, you’re able to flex your leadership style to suit the situation you’re in.
