"When interviewing for a position as a practice manager, expect to answer questions about your analytical, leadership, and accounting skills that qualify you to manage the business side of a healthcare practice. Prepare to field behavioral questions about your management experience and personal management style as well as your knowledge of the healthcare industry."
When did you fail as a leader initially and had to adjust your style to fix the issue?
I had a situation in my first leadership position where I took a very authoritative approach to leading my team and I failed miserably. After I was counseled by an important mentor of mine, I learned that my singular approach to leading was incorrect and that I needed to adjust my leadership style to each of my team members' needs. After learning what motivated each of my team members, I became a more effective leader and was able to lead a cohesive team.
When I was a cheerleading coach.
When I began my shift lead position, I had to adjust to giving orders, and some people had expressed that I was bossy. I spoke with my managers and talked about better ways to assign tasks, without making it sound rude or demeaning.
