Adding requirements does not equate to leadership; it's often better to simplify processes.
Continue to create an environment where personnel feel comfortable exposing weaknesses.
Getting an Interview

- Accepted OfferNeutral ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory (Albany, NY).
Starting at 7am, you meet at a hotel and they give you a short presentation. Following that, you sit in a hotel room, including a bed and mini fridge, with the door open at the little desk and HR or a manager comes in, questions you, and then leaves. This happens with 2-3 managers or HR people. You gather for lunch in the banquet hall and another presentation. Another 2-3 managers meet in your hotel room after lunch. Then you have a closeout discussion with HR. If they offer you a job you have to wait 1-12 months for your security clearance to process and pass a drug test.
