Tell me about a time where you were involved in a conflict

  at work. What did you do to try and rectify the situation?

Interview Answer

1 Answer


A project in my last position [project details] involved interacting and coordinating with a number of different departments. As the project was outside their normal scope of work, it was difficult to get them to prioritise the task over their existing responsibilities

 I discussed the importance of the task and negotiated the requirements I put on them to try and ease the pressure. By offering to take on some of their other work load, it freed up their time and expertise to achieve a successful outcome. This brought the team closer together and encouraged similar levels of cooperation for the rest of the project.
