Summary: Seeking Great Leadership as your top priority is the fifth key to Getting The Job

Step 1

Describe your ideal job. Be specific.

Step 2

On a scale of 1 to 10, rate the level of passion, excitement and fulfillment you would have if you were to get that exact job today.

Step 3

Now take your ideal job, but imagine that the leadership you are working for is dishonest, self centered, greedy and lacks integrity. Take time to really see yourself working in that kind of environment. How would you feel working under that leadership for the next 2, 5, 10, 20 years of your life?

Base on the same criteria in Step 2, how would you rate that job now?

Step 4

What does this tell you about the importance the quality of leadership plays in the passion, fulfillment and success of your next job?

Step 5

The Fifth Rule of becoming one of the World's Best Interviewees is:

Do you agree?

Step 6

If you chose another answer, describe a circumstance where you are working for leadership that lies to you (or doesn't always tell you the truth), betrays you and treats you unfairly AND you still feel passionate, excited and fulfilled in your job.

Step 7

Now imagine that you are working in a job where the leadership is honest, generous, wise and possess a high level of integrity. Take time to really see yourself working in that kind of environment. How would you feel working under that leadership for the next 2, 5, 10, 20 years of your life?

On a scale of 1 to 10, rate your level passion, excitement and fulfillment you believe you would have if you were to get that exact job today.

Step 8

Given what you just learned, describe your ideal job again.

Step 9

If you had an opportunity to work for a company whose leadership was honest, fair and had a high level of integrity, how much more flexible would you be on issues of salary, type of position, commute, etc.?
