2. Prepare your answers do not worry about the questions. What is important is what you tell them what matches what they need and are looking for.
3. Prepare your philosophy first. Then have a great example that will illustrate your ability to execute on this philosophy.
4. Then all that is left is your ability to transition in an interview. Whatever question is asked transition to your Philosophy and then give the outstanding example that will illustrate this philosophy.

In addition here is a great leadership style that gets a great deal of positive responses.
