Here’s the FULL LIST of CEO (CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER) INTERVIEW QUESTIONS:

Q1. Tell me about yourself?

SUGGESTED ANSWER:

“I believe there are five main traits and qualities that define me, both as a CEO and also a person. I am extremely well organized, immensely passionate about my work, a very strong communicator, a natural leader and motivator, and also someone who enjoys the challenge of change and the responsibility I have to continually improve and develop so I can maintain peak performance within my role. Outside of work, I am family person who has the support of my partner and my children. They understand how important it is for me to not only enjoy my work, but that I am available at all times to respond to the obvious challenges that will come with the role of a CEO. Apart from the qualities and traits I just mentioned, I have always been a loyal and honest person who acts with the highest standards of integrity at all times, both on a professional and personal basis. Of course, I would say this, but if you hire me as your Chief Executive Officer, I will deliver on my promises and drive your company forward into the future with passion and vigour.”

Q2. How do you plan to succeed as our CEO when others in the past have failed to live up to expectations?

SUGGESTED ANSWER

“I already have a plan in place to succeed. My plan involves four key stages. The initial stage is obtaining a thorough understanding of where we need to be as an organization, including where we are right now, our strengths, the weaknesses that hold us back, and also the opportunities that are available to us within this industry that will help us to thrive moving forward. The second stage is creating a definitive action plan based on short, medium and long term strategic financial objectives. I have considerable experience in creating action plans that deliver results, and I will use my experience from previous positions to ensure the plan’s objectives are both actionable and achievable. The third stage of my plan is assessing key senior managers and members of staff who are in a position to influence the change we need, and more importantly, to deliver it. There will undoubtedly be many members of the organization who are highly talented and hungry to deliver on the changes we, as an organization, want to make. The fourth stage of my action plan is to provide the necessary resources, motivational support and leadership direction needed for us to succeed. Whilst my plan will always be flexible and adaptable to the challenges and the changes in the industry we will all face, I am one hundred percent confident it will succeed.”

4 ESSENTIAL TIPS FOR PASSING YOUR CEO (CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER) INTERVIEW

TIP #1 – The level of response you provide to each interview question posed must be at a ‘strategic-level’ of thinking. Whilst there will inevitably be a number of interview questions that explore what you are really like as a person, the bulk of the interview will explore how you plan to meet the challenges of the role, embrace change positively, and drive the organization forward both financially and commercially. On that basis, we strongly recommend you prepare strategic-level answers to the interview questions listed on this page.

TIP #2 – The interview panel will have already conducted extensive research into your potential to perform the role successfully. Therefore, during the CEO interview, they will want to hear of specific examples of where you have already demonstrated significant achievement within a previous organizational role. The position of Chief Executive Officer comes with significant levels of responsibility; therefore, make sure you think carefully about specific situations you have already been in that prove your competence in a strategic role.

TIP #3 – Undoubtedly, one of the competency areas that will be assessed during your CEO interview will be that of your ability to implement change across the organization. During your preparation for the interview, consider carefully the changes you will want to make if you are successful at interview. If you already have a plan in place, this will show you have really thought carefully about how you will be of benefit to their organization and, more importantly, meet their goals and objectives.

TIP #4 – When responding to interview questions that assess your competence as a CEO, and also the previous situations you have been in that prove your capabilities, we strongly recommend you structure your answers using the STAR technique. Within the answers provided to the CEO interview questions on this page, Richard McMunn has structured all of the responses using the STAR method.
