This is an invitation to talk about volunteerism that you are involved with. So, the ideal way to the frame your answer is:
If you are in management, you want to talk about not managing, but just doing and being reminded of how people think from “the doer perspective” and thus how it affects you favorably when you’re leading.
If you are at a staff-level and you have an opportunity to lead, it’s in appreciation for the effort that goes into leadership. So, the idea is to flip the 2 situations around.
Again, as an is a manager and above, the reminder of what it’s like to be a doer. As a doer, you want to talk about the things that you learned about being a manager, a director . . . Being In some sort of leadership role that you normally haven’t gotten yet at work and are aspiring to.
