Description: This article was written by Wharton professor emeritus of management Michael Useem. Useem is also director of the Wharton Center for Leadership and Change Management. You are about to interview three finalists for a senior position in your enterprise. The candidates have all worked for the company for years, and your search committee believes all are qualified. What questions should you ask in the final interview to help you decide who is best qualified to lead one of your premier divisions or functions?


Date: Feb 21, 2022


Questions for discussion:

  • What does each of these questions really ask a candidate, in your view?
  • Do you think that a candidate should know these questions will be asked before the interview?
  • Do you think this screening process is unfair in any way?
