"Companies count on managers to make smart team decisions and oversee group members in order to maintain deadlines and keep operations running smoothly. Be prepared to answer several situational questions that will evaluate your time management skills, problem solving abilities, and ease in leading a team. Employers will also expect you to be well-versed in products and operations, so make sure to brush up on the department's relevant work."
How do you coach and incentivize people with a limited budget to be the very best they can be for themselves and for the company?
It comes down to attitude and using your free resources such as gratitude and a pat on the back for a job well done. Recognizing great performance when it happens in a timely manner and most importantly engaging the employee and making them a part of the solution. People don't like to be talked down to so let them know what is in it for them then coach to that at every opportunity and recognize them again and often - and most importantly MEAN it.
