I had researched insurance, but not reinsurance specifically (different from Insurance, as reinsurance, as I know now is the insurance of other insurance companies) meaning I stumbled over this question.
What's your biggest weakness? Give an example of you getting something wrong. Give an example of you having to ask for help. What challenges do you see from moving over from what you do now to what you'll be doing here at Willis?
- Said I'm too much a people-pleaser to say 'No' and I recently learned that this is something I need to work on. - I gave an example of miscommunication over email, which could have been avoided with a phone call (and this is how I ended up resolving it) - I gave an example of having a near-impossible task and how I chose to reach out to my most senior boss for help very early on, as soon as I realised this was something I would probably need his help with. - With a twinkle in the eye, I said I do not see any challenges with the move from X to Y, it doesn't phase me, and then I listed the reasons why. Perhaps not the answer they were expecting but this seemed to go down rather well.
