Q：How would you describe your management style?
参考回答：First of all, I don't want to be an overly friendly and understanding manager because this may make it difficult for me to discipline my subordinates, nor do I want to be an unfriendly, unapproachable manager who may not be aware of ongoing problems. I think a certain distance between my subordinates and me is necessary. This will enable me to better manage them. In addition, my management style is flexible. That is to say, I can adapt my management style to different people and circumstances and am able to make changes and improvements whenever necessary. For instance, for certain of my employees, I have been trying not to give them the answers when they ask for help with a problem. They need to learn how to come up with the solutions themselves, and I need to guide and facilitate this process. In order to do this, I allocate however much time is needed to sit down with them and work through the problem. We discuss it, and I give my view of the situation and then ask them to go away and think about the best solution.
Q：How do you make your decisions in general?
参考回答：I usually follow several steps to make my decision. First, I work with my team members to brainstorm as many feasible alternatives or solutions as possible. Second, we evaluate each of these solutions by weighing advantages and disadvantages. Finally, we choose the most appropriate solution and carry it out. In addition, we also consider what goes right and wrong with any decision and learn for the future. Without feedback, we would never learn from experiences and may make the same mistake again.
Q：How do you delegate tasks?
参考回答：I don't think it is effective to delegate tasks to different subordinates in the same way. It is necessary for a manager to adapt his delegating skills according to the individual he is dealing with and the situation. For example, for inexperienced employees I often use a way that involves a high level of task instruction and close supervision. I find this effective because the inexperienced employees need to be assured that they know exactly what to do and how to do it. They also require constant support to build their confidence. For more experienced employees who are comfortable with their work, I encourage independent thinking and expect them to come to me for help only when they need it. This demonstrates my trust in their ability to do the job on their own.
