You can draft a series of questions before you enter the meeting and add to the questions depending on the issues discussed during the interview. Here are a few examples (do not be afraid to go beyond and think outside the box):
· Which part of the job is likely to have the steepest learning curve?
· What is your preferred method of communication with your staff? Clients? Senior Managers?
· What are the most important KPIs that I need to address?
· Tell me about your career and how you were able to build your record of successes (people do love to talk about themselves – give him / her that opportunity).
