While answering this question, it’s important to highlight a few things:

  • Your interpersonal skills – what interviewer is interested in is not content, but how well you can interact with other people
  • That you don’t only talk, but you can also ask right questions
  • That you can wait for the right moment to bring up your arguments (“Ninja is the art of waiting”)

Best,

Daniel

Hello!

This is a question that relates to one of the following:

  • Leadership: Leadership stories don´t need to necessarily relate to formal leadership positions, but to moments in which you inspired others towards a common goal
  • Personal impact: Personal impact stories relate to stakeholder management, by handling disagreement or conflict situations

Depends on whether you use your communication skills for convincing someone or for guiding a team!

Hope it helps!

Cheers,

Clara
