    I tell them my greatest weakness is having to work for a company like yours to maintain a lifestyle that I am comfortable with...

    My greatest weakness?

    Being obsessed with doing a great job even if it means working nights and weekends at the expense of my family.

    "You're hired!"

    I didn't see any mention of leader/manager in the original question.

    I know from personal experience that you can motivate your co-workers without being a manager. Encouraging words like "Let's get his done first" can work wonders.

    Did you read the OP?

    First sentence in the OP:
    That is true. That it is is why I wrote "manager/leader."

    That leaves the interviewer and interviewed equal integrity.

    They normally don't take it as such...Probably why I am still self employed 30 years later...
