What was the result.Describe a time when you had difficulty communicating your thoughs clearly to another person. What type of situation? What was the message you ried to convey. Did you get your point across? What was the outcome?

I work as a Software Engineer and I was informed by my manager that I had to deliver a presentation on the current project to a group of collegues, seniors and officers from other department. This was a mix audience. Though I was very confident about the technicalities, I felt it was almost impossible for me to ensure that each listener got the message.

I research on the net on how to prepare for a presentation and took a lot of support from team members, found out what each person attending was expecting, prepared an outline of the presentation, did some mock sessions. Also, kept some time for questions. When I delivered, I was confident and it was an interactive session. At the end couple of them congratualted me for delivering an excellent presentation.

Now, anytime a presentation needs to be delivered, my manager checks with me, if I am willing.


11⟩ Suppose Mr. Shah decided to walk down the escalator of a tube station. He found that if he walks down 26 steps, he requires 30 seconds to reach the bottom. However, if he steps down 34 stairs he would only require 18 seconds to get to the bottom. If the time is measured from the moment the top step begins to descend to the time he steps off the last step at the bottom, find out the height of the stair way in steps?

Let the speed of escalator be x steps/sec

then total steps in escalator is 26 + 30x (since the escalator covers 30x steps while the person covers 26 steps)

Similarly the in the second case the total no of steps is 34 + 18x

solving both .. 26 + 30x = 34 + 18x

12x = 8 , x = 2/3 therefore steps is 26 + 30*2/3 = 46 steps

20⟩ Explain how do you handle conflict?

I have had conflicts in the past so I think I should share with you.. Never major ones, but certainly there have been situations where there was a disagreement that needed to be resolved. I've found that when conflict occurs, it's because of a failure to see both sides of the situation. Therefore, I ask the other person to give me their perspective and at the same time ask that they allow me to fully explain my perspective. At that point, I would work with the person to find out if a compromise could be reached. If not, I would submit to their decision because they are my superior. In the end, you have to be willing to submit yourself to the directives of your superior, whether you're in full agreement or not.
