How do you handle change?
How do you handle change?
Are you good at dealing with change?
Dealing with change is common in the work place. A simple yes will not be sufficient to impress the interviewer. This is another type of question where everyone will have similar answers. Of course everyone is going to claim being excellent dealing with change. You got to communicate that you are really good at dealing with change. Here are some examples for you.
I'm good at dealing with change because I'm a quick thinker. If new information makes us change our marketing strategy for example, I'll be quick to analyze the information and create a plan to make the changes.
I've experienced many changes previously. I handle the situation by quickly coming up to speed on the changes and applying myself to make them a success.
I'm good at dealing with change because I'm flexible with my work and abilities. I'm not afraid of learning new and difficult things. Whenever I'm faced with a change, I'll put in extra effort to make the change a smooth transition.
I handle changes smoothly. Whenever there's a change of any sort, I analyze the situation and I always try to find ways I can contribute to the change in a positive way.
I believe dealing with change is a requirement in the workplace. The mission statement can change to introduce a new market segment, or the company might need to change direction. Whatever it is, as a member of this team, I would be expected to do my share by absorbing the new information, analyzing it thoroughly, sharing my ideas, and really being a valued team member. Dealing with change is a necessary trait. I think I'm also good at anticipating change by being attentive and observant.
Overall, this is a good answer. The last statement is a bold statement of being able to anticipate change. If the interviewer is impressed, they might follow up by asking for an example of how you anticipate change. If you use an answer like I provided, make sure you have an example. If you don't have one, then the answer you gave will be seen as a lie and you probably failed.
