How to cultivate change agents and innovators

By annie shum | July 22, 2009

Michele Martin builds on a post by Meredith Levinson on a series of six questions to identify change agents and innovators during a job interview and adds four questions of her own. These are great questions to consider about your working life, regardless of whether you are going to a job interview or not!

What do you do to build, manage and maintain your network?
If I Google you, what will I find?
What do you do to stay focused?
What do you do to stay relevant?
What innovative solutions have you created?
Walk (me) through a time when you administered change.
What important problems or questions do you see facing our industry? Your occupation?
What do you do to expose yourself to new ideas and new thinking on a regular basis?
What big mistake have you made recently and what did you learn from it?
What matters to you? What are you passionate about? What gets you up in the morning or keeps you awake at night?
