Strategy Statement:

The interviewer wants to know whether you view these qualities a mutually exclusive, and get a sense of your managerial skills.

Sample Response:

I feel that both qualities are necessary components for effective management. There are situations that might benefit from the one, just as there are situations that benefit from the other. My task is to be able to discern which approach is most beneficial to the task-at-hand (micro) and the company/division as-a-whole (macro).
