This is not going to be a direct question asked by an interviewer during McKinsey interview – but in all of the PEI dimensions you are preparing for (Personal Impact, Leadership & Entrepreneurship), it’s very good to have an element of it. When writing down your stories, think about a situation you could include when, for example:

  • there was a difficult team member – but you managed to successfully include him/her into the team and he/she became fully engaged with the team work
  • you took a practical decision, which significantly helped the team to move forward with the work (you followed 80/20)
  • there were 2 team members who couldn’t stand each other and you mediated peace (e.g. by talking to each one of them, bringing them together, discussing the issue)
  • you inspired the team somehow and everybody got super motivated and delivered the results
  • you knew something personal about some team member (e.g.she really wanted to go to this football match) and you used it to lift up her spirits (e.g. you bought her the tickets) to ensure she performed well as part of the team

In the end of course you need to focus on the question at hand in each of the PEI dimension – but if you bring those elements into the game as well, this will be a plus ;)

Hello!

This is a question that clearly relates to Ownership and Leadership, so any stories that you have prepared for those two topics is suitable

Cheers,

Clara
