Leader
by Amit Thokal
Question 1
Question
One of your team members
consistently misses deadlines.
How would you address this
issue?
Answer
If I encounter a team member consistently missing
deadlines, I would first schedule a private meeting
to discuss the issue. I would approach the situation
with empathy, seeking to understand any
underlying challenges or obstacles they may be
facing. I would provide clear feedback on the
impact of their missed deadlines and set realistic
expectations moving forward. Together, we would
develop an action plan to address the issue, which
may include offering additional support, adjusting
workload distribution, or providing relevant training.
Regular follow-ups and performance monitoring
would ensure improvement and accountability.
Question 2
Question
Your team is experiencing
conflicts and disagreements.
How would you resolve these
conflicts and restore a positive
team dynamic?
Answer
To address conflicts and restore a positive team
dynamic, I would encourage open communication
among team members. I would initiate a team
meeting to allow everyone to express their
concerns and perspectives. Actively listening to
each individual, I would facilitate a constructive
dialogue to identify the underlying causes of the
conflicts. Together, we would work towards finding
common ground and developing mutually
beneficial solutions. I would emphasize the
importance of respect, collaboration, and
compromise to foster a harmonious team
environment. Ongoing conflict resolution
strategies, such as mediation or team-building
activities, may also be implemented as needed.

Your team is facing a sudden
increase in workload. How
would you manage this

When confronted with a sudden increase in
workload, I would first assess the team's capacity
and available resources. I would then prioritize
tasks based on urgency and importance,
considering each team member's skills and
workload balance. Clear communication would be
vital to ensure everyone understands the new
expectations and timelines. I would offer support
by delegating tasks effectively, providing additional
resources or training where necessary, and
continuously monitoring progress. Regular check-
ins and feedback sessions would allow me to
address any concerns, maintain motivation, and
promote a healthy work-life balance among team
members.

out to the customer to apologize for their negative
experience and assure them that their feedback is
valued. I would take responsibility for the issue and
demonstrate empathy towards their concerns. In
collaboration with the team, I would conduct a
thorough analysis to identifyskills gaps or areas for

discuss the impact it has on the team's productivity
and goal achievement. Depending on the
circumstances, I would offer support and guidance

I would also engage in open and transparent
communication with team members, seeking their
input and feedback. By understanding their

underlying issues effectively. I would conduct
individual performance reviews, offering
constructive feedback and identifying areas for

would communicate the request to the team,
ensuring transparency and involving them in the

potential risks, benefits, and resource implications
of the change. If the change is deemed necessary,

revised plan, adjusting deadlines, redistributing
