Here’s How Google Knows in Less Than 5 Minutes if Someone Is a Great Leader


After years of study, Google uses a few simple questions to identify the company’s best leaders.

We tell students to look for an internship/job where they will find a good mentor and leader. That is sometimes hard to quantify, so we thought Google’s leadership questions may be a good place to start! You can tweak these questions to ask during your interview.

Since leadership is more art than science, how can you objectively determine if someone is a great leader? Google has spent considerable time and effort trying to answer this very question. It makes sense that one of the most analytical companies in the world puts some of its analytical horsepower into determining how great teams are built and led. Over time, the company identified the key behaviors of its best team managers.

Volunteer Aide Needed at the Adult Stabilization Program at CSAC

Great opportunity for
Pre-Health Students!

Our friends at the Adult Stabilization Program (ASP) at the Counseling Service of Addison County (CSAC) are looking for a volunteer to help a community member prepare for a move.

You would be working with a woman in her early 70’s who is starting the process of reducing her possessions in order to prepare for a potential to a warmer state. She has difficulty moving heavy objects due to a back injury and doesn’t have close family or friends nearby.  She is easy to work with and having a helper (especially a student), would be an amazing motivator for her and the only way she could tackle the beginning stages of moving on her own.

Interested? Contact Nicole Grubman, MA, LMHC at 802 388 6751 X666
