What You Can Learn from the Best Leader in America’s Bold Job Interview Strategy
Interviewing for the job that brought her national prominence, she prepared and behaved differed from most standard advice, but was incredibly effective.
Of those responsible the Girl Scouts camping out on the White House lawn, Frances Hesselbein may have been the most important. As the CEO of the Girls Scouts from 1976 to 1990, she helped turn the organization around, tripling minority enrollment, and increasing their focus on leadership, science, technology, and math.
Her work earned her the Presidential Medal of Freedom among other honors–bringing her to the White House–not to mention the growth in enrollment, volunteers, achievements, and satisfaction of the girls she served, their families, and their communities.

She had to interview like anyone else.
Only how she interviewed wasn’t like everyone else. At dinner recently, she told me how, and most of us can learn from her.
