Sample Answer:

“When a new manager joined my team at the previous job, I realized that he had very different communication style than my previous boss. My previous manager was very loose about documenting daily progress, but the new manager had expectations that all daily activities to be documented without being very communicative about it. So I set up a meeting with him to come up with a template that the entire team can use to document progress more efficiently. I learned how I could resolve team’s problem by taking the initiative and communicating openly about it, even as a junior person.”
