Leadership Lounge | Ep. 2
What top companies ask during executive interviews

In the past, whenever top companies wanted to hire their next leader, they knew what to look for: somebody with technical expertise and a proven track record of delivering financial returns.

But the world has changed. And so has what people have come to expect from a leader.

While the ‘control and command’ hierarchical leader still exists and can deliver for a business, top companies today are increasingly looking for leaders who promote social inclusion, diversity of thought, and help empower others through their leadership.

When done right, leaders are able to display things like emotional intelligence and open communication—Ingredients for great leadership today.

But how do you get these skills across in an interview? You can’t just tell the interviewer that you have them. You have to be able to show them.

We invited four of our esteemed leadership advisors, Edward Mason, Mina Paul, Evan Sharp, and Nick Henderson into the Leadership Lounge to share how leaders can demonstrate that they have what it takes to be an effective leader.

Tune in to discover what the core leadership traits of a successful leader are, and why it’s important that as a leader, you’re able to flex your leadership style to suit the situation you’re in.
