Good Interview Questions #9
Share with us a workplace success you are really proud of... What contributed to its success? Was this a team effort? Do you think you could have pulled off alone?
Such a question helps give us insight into the individuals ability to (i) work as part of team, and (ii) how comfortable they are to share the credit….
Depending on what you are wanting if the candidate is not so strongly required to work as part of a team then this will help you gain insight into their ability to go it alone. If they are required to be a team player, then it also gives you insight as to their eagerness to go it alone.
The insight we also gain into credit sharing helps you better see what type of ego you may need to manage at times within your workplace.
