i am nervous!!!!
for the 27th dec batch who passed the management round, can i ask how did u manage to answer the following questions:
-ability to cope with politics and bullying (eg. asking what you would do if a superior instructed you to do something you knew was wrong)
-how you would deal with superiors who are younger than you / less capable than you when faced with bullying
thanks in advance! i am feeling nauseous and wanna throw up.. at all the interviews.. all these interviews really scaring me..
Hi Yingying2888, I was thrown the exact same questions. This is what I answered and apparently, the interviewers nodded their heads with approval.
-Ability to cope with politics and bullying (eg. asking what you would do if a superior instructed you to do something you knew was wrong)
In any given situation when I'm told to complete a task which defies the constitution and integrity of either myself or my organization, I will first judge the exact task. Will it hurt another person? Will it cause unnecessary trouble? Is it against my own conscience? Honestly, if it doesn't fit into any of that criterias, I'll do it first, then I will approach my supervisor for enlightenment. Only then, will I not taken to task for insubordination. I definitely am justified to speak up, of course, in a polite manner.
-How you would deal with superiors who are younger than you / less capable than you when faced with bullying
A lot of people are born with the gift of the gap. Having this gift will allow them to think that they can talk their way out of any situation. But the greatest lesson to learn, if one really possesses this gift, is to learn when not to use it. Hierarchy occurs in all organization. Even if this particular person happens to be less capable or younger, he/she is still my superior. I will give the due respect, but will try to approach others with an equal or higher ranking to gain enlightenment.
Bottom line is, always put yourself in a protected but subordinated position. Only then will you give them the impression that you have a willingness to help, learn, assist and improve yourself.
All the best and good luck!
