If they are calling you in for an interview, they already know your skill set. Don't try to be anything you haven't been, instead focus on how you've succeeded at your previous and current role. Emphasize your ability to manage projects and staff. Be personable, listen to your interviewer, and be mindful of their body language. If you do that, you'll be fine. Start talking about things your shaky on to fit a job description and things can go south kinda quick.
