". . . makes me wonder whether those of us interviewing deans over the years should be asking standard questions like: "What is your management style?" Might it be better to ask something like: "How do you go about bringing the best performance out of different staff/faculty?""

This is a great question. Could also be followed up by asking the candidates for a couple of examples of where they did what they describe. This could help bring out whether the candidate actually understands different work styles and personality types and can be effective in working with them.

In preparation for the coming dean hiring season, want to do a post on good questions to ask dean candidates?

LLL: I like your idea about a post on good questions to ask dean candidates this coming season and will mix it together with a reference for another book that may be useful in this area. Thanks for your thoughts.
