    Use the star method and have an example for each leadership principle.

    Look up the list of questions from Glassdoor and make sure to have a story from the past against each principle. They're going to cross question a lot of those principles.

  • What is "cross question"? Also, how much do they ask follow-ups

      It’s not a quiz on how well you know the LPs it’s a quiz on your background and during your answer of those questions they expect you to showcase how you epitomize the LPs. For example they may only ask you 2-3 questions about past experience but the hope is the answers you give showcase multiple LPs per question.

      Regarding follow ups, it’s a conversation where you are telling a story so they are likely to ask for more detail in areas they think will help showcase LPs if you aren’t doing a good enough job on your own

      I had my onsite recently. Out of the 5 hours of interviews more than half of the time was spent asking behavioral questions. That is crazy.
