In an audit team describe a situation you may encounter when it is beneficial to be the leader in the group. When might it better to step back and observe and be a follower?

2 Answers

Very tough question. Not sure the basis for the follower part of the question

Its a tough question. The best answer will be: Leader: Try to the leader at any situation you can. A perfect example would be, when you know more than rest of the staff ( maybe insights into the industry, better knowledge of system etc) Follower: It is good to follow the lead when you don't have much experience. Sit back, observe and provide feedback if you see something out of the ordinary. Less

I gave examples of what I had done, felt comfortable with, and what software I was familiar with. While I did not have a security clearance, I knew that obtaining one would not be difficult with several character references (former professors and peers) available. Less
