Q. When did you make a difficult decision within a team that most people were against?
SITUATION – Whilst sat at my desk one day, the fire alarm started sounding. So, I immediately got up from my desk to make my way out of the building, but I noticed the other members of the team were ignoring the fire alarm. We were situated on the 5th floor of the office block, and it was important we left quickly.
TASK – I felt it was my responsibility to force people to leave the office and make their way out safely using the fire escape. Therefore, I wasn’t going to ignore company policy and, potentially, put other people’s lives at risk.
