"Employers hiring general managers are looking for decisive leaders with previous management experience to oversee a department or division in the company. In an interview, be ready to discuss your ability to lead lower-level managers and implement improvements within the business. General managers may join the company directly through management, so interviewers will want candidates who are capable of forming strong relationships with established employees."
Tell me about a time when you made a risky decision and the outcome was not what you expected.
make sure you say why you made it and what you would have done differently
Mention why the risky decision was necessary in the first place, a balancing of weighing out the possibility of a great outcome. Stress that even though it wasn't what you expected it did give you a great opportunity to learn a new way to handle situations
