A detailed answer and analysis of a tough interview question from Matt & Nan DeLuca, authors of the best selling "Best Answers to the 201 Most Frequently Asked Interview Questions" (new edition) and "More Best Answers to the 201 Most Frequently Asked Interview Questions"

What are some of the things you find difficult to do?

The interviewer is looking to determine how well you know yourself, how you react to difficult situations/tasks and credibility.  Look back over your work experience for examples of challenges...speaking in public at a meeting, disagreeing with a manager over an important issue, being asked to use a software program you have not had an opportunity to learn...

These 'stories' should illustrate a lesson learned, a problem overcome or a weakness being dealt with. 

"I always seem to need a day or two to prepare myself to give a presentation to department heads.  When I know I have to give a report on my projects, I plan out all the details in advance and rehearse.  One time, there was a problem with a supplier and I was asked to update senior management...immediately.   The supply chain was crucial to the completion of an important project we had been working on for 5 months and decisions had to be made based on the information I had to prepare and present on a moment's notice.  I gathered the information and presented it simply and in detail.  It was much easier than I thought without the hours of concern and practice.  The facts spoke for themselves.  Since I understood the situation, I was able to make it clear to management and get a rapid decision.  I still prefer advance notice but I know I can deliver when asked to."
