Interview Question

Executive Assistant to Chief Executive Officer Interview Mill Valley, CA

Most unexpected question was in response to one of my

  weaknesses - that I am a poor delegator. In a fourth interview my poor delegating skills were discussed as a concern but I was able to explain the difference between delegating to a subordinate (I have prior management experience) and delegating to a co-worker who is managed by a different person. Because this role was not a manager role, I would have a weakness delegating my own work to someone else because I take full ownership of my personal workload. In retrospect I should have explained that this weakness is not a personal shortcoming but an area where I could benefit most from training, development and/or support.
