  1. Can you describe a challenging situation you faced as a leader and how you handled it?

  2. How do you motivate and inspire your team members to achieve their goals?

  3. Can you provide an example of a successful project or initiative you led from start to finish?

  4. How do you handle conflict or disagreement within your team?

  5. Can you discuss a time when you had to make a difficult decision as a leader? How did you approach it?

  6. How do you prioritize tasks and manage time effectively in a leadership role?
