I am putting together my PEI stories for McK interview and I am bit struggling with presenting hard challenge to overcome (e.g. "Tell me about the challenge you had to push hard to overcome"). As a consultant I have challenging work in general, but I genuinely feel challenged since I emarked on this McK preparation path. Combining time demanding consulting job (and pursuing promotion this year) with case study preparation and also ensuring my wife does not divorce me posed quite a significant challenge for me. Especially since I am of a technical background and have to catch up quite a lot on business sense, etc.
I feel like it would make nice challenge story where I could speak about motivating myself to continue through the journey and also seeking support from my peers in work and family. The preparation is also long term commitment which makes it bigger challenge than things when you have to pass through few bad days in a row.
What do you think about this? Good or bad idea?
Thanks for your insight.
