Be prepared with a good example, explaining why the decision was difficult, the process you followed in reaching it and the courageous or effective way you carried it out.

  • When a company entrusts you with decision making authority, they will need to ensure that you are capable of taking sound and sensible decisions based on facts and figures. While sometimes deciding is easier, on occasions it is not so easy to rule out even though you know you have the final words.

    With leadership qualities, one needs to understand the effects of their decisions upon the company and the people working in it. Such decisions can neither be deprived of factual analysis nor completely free of sentimental values. Keeping morals as well as analytical reports in view, you should be able to take tough decisions, eventually the result of which should be good for the company. You may have your own preferences but your decision should be from the point of view of right and wrong.

    Talk about an instance where you had to make a tough decision at work and, regardless of the fact that it displeased some people, you did what was right for the company and was ethically correct too. You can also mention that before making the tough decision you tried to bring the situation under control by other effective means but at the end since nothing seemed to work, you took the firm decision which eventually proved to be beneficial for the company.
