David Dinsmore, editor of the Scottish Sun, hopes to transition to a general management role in the future and took advantage of The General Management Leadership Program last fall to prepare. As an editor, he traditionally plays an autocratic role within an organization. But during the program, Dinsmore says he learned that the role of general manager is more about listening, inviting others' opinions and being a filter for those ideas in order to make good decisions.
