Interviewing a children’s coach

I have interviewed a children’s coach for assignment 2 of BCM313. He was a close friend of mine so the interview was a mix of formal and informal. Some of the questions I asked were:

  1. How is your relationship with your supervisor?

I asked this question because I wanted to know how attached to the job he felt in his current stage. His impression of the people he works with was the easiest way to figure this out.

  1. Can you think of any difficulties you may have faced with your employers?I asked my interviewee this question to see if I could find any cracks in his high opinion of his work. Maybe I could switch the direction of the interview as it was getting predictable(I also promised I wouldn’t snitch to his company if he had some nasty remarks.)
  1. What have you learnt from your work that has made you a better person?

I wanted to hear what kinds of things he had learnt from his job. And he ended up teaching me more than what I was expecting. Now I am a master at handling children and his answer also showed me how he has developed after working in his current job.

  1. Were there any surprises or challenges you faced when working?
  1. Can you tell me a situation where you were proud of something?

I also talked about how my interviewee developed their personal value while working, how they managed change in their working life, and what they expect from the future in my presentation.
