This question is simply a spin on the question of “Describe your strengths and weaknesses”. It tests your ability to reflect on your own development needs. A good answer would highlight three strengths and three development areas.

For strengths, try to focus on areas that relate to the consulting competencies (e.g. problem-solving, teamwork, communications, client impact) and for weaknesses be careful not to highlight ‘fatal flaws’ (e.g. I am totally disorganised or hopeless with maths!). Good answers frame a weakness as a strength or highlight strong self-awareness and indicate how you are addressing this. (e.g. I can sometimes be too detail oriented. I am aware of this and am taking steps to ensure I regularly stand back from the detail to take stock of the bigger picture).
