Growth Mindset Interview Questions (3 of 3)

Updated: Mar 15

Finally! Part 3 of "How do you interview for 'growth mindset." I have 3 go-to questions..


Question #3:


“Do you have any questions for me?”

(Make sure you leave legit time at the end for their questions.)


They should have a lot of questions, especially early in the interview process. Not basic questions like “do you offer a gym membership?” Again, watch their nonverbals - genuine excited curiosity. Do the questions reflect thought and understanding of your business? How you grow your company, and the roles they might fill in the org? Curiosity may be bad for cats, but it is the key to a growth mindset!
