The star method is basically a way of responding to a behavioral based interview question by discussing the specific situation. Task, action, and result are of what you describe it. So S stands for situation. Described the situation that you are in. Give details to the interviewer to understand the complexity of the situation. Examples can be from a previous job, school project, volunteer activity, or any rule event, event. T for task. So describe exactly the task that you wanted to accomplish and what goal where you walk into. A for action describes the action you took to address the situation with enough details and keep the focus on you. What specific steps did you take? Don't describe what the team did. Describe only what you actually did. Use the word, I know we when describing action with describe what's your personal contribution when describing actions. Our four results. So describe the outcome of your actions and don't be shy about taking credit for your behavior. So what happened, how did the event and what did you accomplish? So what did you accomplish? What did you learn? And given off examples using metrics, if possible. So when using the star method, keep in mind to consider your own successes in relation to the leadership principles. Have enough examples that show you expertise. And it's okay, don't believe in failing early and then iterating until you get it right. Failure is a necessary part of innovation is not optional. You need to understand and believe of failing early until you get it right. Behavioral based questions. Amazon leadership, job interviews, or focus in behavioral based question, which asks about fast situation or challenges you faced and how you handle them, using leadership principles to guide the discussion. And here are some examples of behavioral based question. Tell me about a time when you were faced with a problem that had a number of possible solutions, what was the problem and how did you determine the course of action? What was the outcome of that choice? Tell me a situation when you did actually take a risk or make a mistake or fail, how did you respond? And how did you grow from that experience? Tell me a situation where you need it to motivate your team or to promote collaboration with specific project. This is another type of question of leadership. And keep in mind that Amazon and big companies are data-driven company. So when answering question, your focus should be on the question ask and be well-organized and provide examples using metric or data if applicable. So in the end, using this terminal format as full situation, task, action, and result is one of the best way of storytelling. Telling your story IES, as much as important as getting the job done.

And you will learn how to practice telling your story using the star method format. That says, thanks again for watching and see you in the next section. 4. Section 3 : 4 Questions and Answers-new: Section 34, examples of Amazon leadership principles, interview questions and answers. So in this section, we're going to talk about four examples of typical leadership questions and some answers. The answers are coming from my own life experience. So you can use them to have inspiration and prep your own story using your own examples in your own life experience. Alright, here we go. Question one. Tell me about a time when you found a simple solution to a complex problem. This is a typical leadership question. So I'm going to propose a suggestion for an answer, simple answer for question one. And was in a meeting in my previous job where the company's sales data were being discussed by my manager. Although the cell numbers were healthy, there was some concern amongst the team that the profitability was not as good as it should be. And at the end of the meeting, I decided to try and find a solution to this problem and met up with the marketing team. And they explained to me the marketing spending on social and social media and others platform. And after doing some research, it became clear to me that the team, we're not using tracking data system to measure the performance of the advertising. So I quickly inform them of what I had found. And moving forward, the team was able to measure accurately the return on investment. And this helped the company to increase profitability and sales by 10% during the next month. So this is our typical suggestion of answer you can use for your one example. Question number two. Tell me about a time when you went above and beyond for a customer. A very good customer. Obsession. Question. Sample, answer to question two, I can remember a situation in my previous job as a right driver. I pick up a customer at the hospital and drove her home. My goal was to make sure to provide a good customer experience and complete a safe ride, as I always do. So I have the costumer to get in the car and then help adjust the oxygen bottles. And I also took care of all her personal items and put them safely in the car. And when we arrive at the drop-off location, the customer needed extra help to get in the house. So I have because summer and I waited. They caregiver showed up to take and I also turned off my way up. And after more than 30 minutes of waiting, the caregiver finally arrived. And the costumer thanks me and give me excellent reviews. And the customer asked me to help us sign up for a monthly plan with our ride share company. Or shown tray. Give me an example of a time when you ask for customer feedback, how did you use that feedback to drive innovation or improvements? And how did the costumer respond? This is one of the typical question on customer obsession leadership. My sample answer for question three is, I can remember in my previous job, working as a data entry clerk for a data collection company. And I sent to my reporter costumer who asked me to do a study for him. And after sending the documents, asks the customer for feedback on my report. So my goal was to make sure to use the costumer feedback and drive improvement of my reports of future projects. So the customer sends me a list of suggestions to improve the document. We get some back and forth and I took some days to complete the reports. I also added most fictions, graphics, and details into new reports. And then I sent the final version to the costumes. And in the end, because summer was very satisfied with the results and gave his approval of the updated version of the report. And three months later, descend costumer reached out to me and asked me to do another report for him. And he remains a loyal customer for the company since this is a very typical answer. Question number four. Tell me about a time when you had to communicate a change in direction that you anticipated people would have concerns with. What did you do to understand the concerns and mitigate them? Were there any changes you made along the way after hearing these concerns? How did you handle question and resistance? Were you able to get people comfortable with change? You very good leadership question. Central answered the question four, I can remember a time when walking as it's Destin, assistant manager for a construction company. And at a previous job, it was very hard to find samples which in the lab, which results in missing and loss of songs samples, and a lot of delays in delivery and testing results to the customer. So I communicate changes in direction in the lab to improve the way samples are received and organize. And my goal was to implement a new system and process and make it easier to find samples. So the Justin results can be sent out on time to the customer. And after communicating the new change in direction or the team members had concerns about the new system. So I listened very carefully to their concerns and incorporate some of their ideas to improve the system. And together we came up with a much better system and process. Were all technician and team members felt very constant, will read. And after four weeks of training on the new system, we started getting good results. Everyone was able to find somebody very quickly, perform the test and sends the results or the customer on time and in the same day of, of receiving any samples. And the new system helped improve the daily productivity of the testing lab by 20%. And the costumers give, coming back and gave great reviews of satisfaction to the company. So in conclusion, when answering leadership questions, keep in mind to always use the star method format, situation, task, action, and result. You can see on my sample answers, have the situation, habitats where I'm explaining which Golem walking tour. And I'm explaining all the actions I took personally. And I present the result again. And use your own examples as as possible for each party leadership principles. Why you need to use you as an example because of follow-up questions. You will be interviewing for leadership position with HR team, with Ops, Ops management team. So they have a lot of experience on the job you intervene for. So try to use your own examples because they will ask you a lot of follow-up questions. So you can give more specifics and more details for each question.
