Short Answers

"My favorite manager was a person with a lot of knowledge.  She stood her ground firmly and knew the best process to take by analyzing all the information."

"My favorite manager was very trusting and easy to approach.  I grew in many ways under this manager and I valued his method of dealing with directs.  I believe in growing employees and this manager did a great job."

"I had a manager that worked efficiently.  Instead of bossing everyone around, he set an example of hard work through his actions.  I respected that trait and learned to be more like him by working smarter."

Long Answer

"The best manager I had was during my first year at Microsoft.  Since then, I have been under many different managers, but nobody matched up to his level.  I respected him the most because of two reasons.  He spent a great deal of time mentoring me and teaching me many work related things.  I became a great employee because of him.  And second, he produced the greatest amount of quality work among all the other managers.  I always wondered how he could spend so much time with me and still find ways to out perform other managers.  But that is where I learned how to work smart and efficiently.  He showed me how to be the best employee through his action and through the individual lessons he gave me.  I was so happy to have had a great manager early in my career."

This is an easy answer for me because I was truly amazed at my first manager.  I made sure to explain why he was the best manager and what I learned from him.  Another reason why it is important to be able to answer this question is because most great employees were taught by a great manager.
