How to Assess Ability to Work With Others

1. Pick a real problem that requires teamwork and cooperation. One the candidate will face in the first month on the job.

Have her walk you through the steps she would take to handle the problem.

If she minimizes or leaves out steps in which you would want her to get input from others, you're in trouble.

2. Give her several different scenarios on how a problem can be approached. Have her pick the one she would use. If she picks teamwork over the individual scenarios you've got your woman.

3. Ask the Candidate to list the situations in which she would act on her own. See if any run counter to corporate expectations.
