    What will I do if my team member’s idea for a project is good but a long procedure and I know that there is shortcut for the same?

    I had been to one interview recently and they asked me this question, “What will I do if my team member’s idea for a project is good but a long procedure and I know that there is short cut for the same”? Will I tell him or will I apply it for myself? How to answer this question sharply?

    Dear..

    The answer of this question lies to the answerers choice. you should answer it in such way :- Sir, In this case i will not help my friend, I will use this for myself and the reason behind this is as follows :-

    1. First of all if company takes a short cut method then it can save precious time of the company and it can help the company to raise its profit margins and it will be beneficial for everybody as profit is divided equally in everybody.
    2. It will increase my performance also and i will be more confident as my idea would be chosen and i will get benefit out of that.
    3. To satisfy the person who gave the idea the best way to tell him that you have given the best idea and i have come up with an improved version and then you both can take benefit out of it which will ultimately help you both and the company as well.

    All the best

    Hi . Basically in this question i think they are trying to test your team spirit and selfless nature.Any person who is selfish and always thinking about his own good will not tell his idea to his team member so that he himself can earn brownie points and bask in glory. While a person who is helpful and selfless will immediately tell his team member that his idea for the project is a long and tedious one but you have some idea which will save you time. So now he has helped his team member and in turn his team due to his selfless nature thus maintaining the essence of team spirit.

    So ofcourse when you are asked such a question you should tell that you will help your team member by giving him your idea which will help your team in completing the project early and thus reach their goal in time. Thus you will not only help your team member but also your team in turn hence maintaing the team spirit which is very inportant for any person to be successful in his life and to have a bright future. You like helping people and thus will certainly never think of being selfish and applying the idea for your own selfish gains.

    I am sure this type of answer from your side will certainly impress your interviewer and you will certainly have a higher position in his eyes. So i think you understood what i have said and hopefully will also try to follow the same in your career so that you can have a bright future.

    Good luck friend and Thanks

    Hello

    This is a very simple yet tricky question.

    You should reply to it trickily.

    You should Answer it this way:

    -->>If my team member's idea is good yet long procedure and I have some shortcuts then I will come up with my ideas and give my opinion on it. And i will propose my idea to them as well .
    And of they like it then we can proceed that way.

    -->>I will discuss and give my ideas as well and if they want me and my team member can work on it together as a team.

    These are some answers you can give in the interview.

    Thank you
