Strategic Statement:

This question goes along well with one regarding what you feel your supervisor might say regarding your performance at work, and it is important that your responses to both of these types-of-questions are similar in content.

Sample Response:

The best representation of managerial confidence in my abilities is reflected when I am assigned work that both presents a challenge and closely aligns with my interests and aspirations. My supervisor’s confidence is reflected in the nature of the work expected of me. I was recently assigned the task of managing inter-office employee communication. This job demonstrated my supervisor’s knowledge of my writing abilities as well as my commitment to clear and unambiguous communication. Given the duties of managing these communications was a tremendous challenge, and the work would not have been assigned to me if the supervisor did not have confidence in my performance.
