I have been asked by my current boss if I would like to apply for a managers position working for him but managing 12-15 people.
Although I have had some experience in the past with management I have been working in a individual contributor role for the past 8 years and while having progressed in my career I have not had to sit through a formal interview process for some time.
I am aware that there are certain topics that are up for discussion and would appreciate any feedback on the best way to answer them.
1. Key Initiatives and Programs - What would be your top 2-3 initiatives for the team if success in your application
2. People Issues - How would you deal with the situation if one of your members of staff was under performing due to personal issues at home
3. What do you think would be your development areas if you took on such a role
