When pursuing their vision, they consider it natural to encounter problems and hurdles that must be overcome along the way.
They are thus comfortable with risk and will see routes that others avoid as potential opportunities for advantage and will happily break rules in order to get things done.
This is, of course, an illustrative characterization, and there is a whole spectrum between either ends of these scales along which each role can range.
And many people lead and manage at the same time, and so may display a combination of behaviors.
An interesting research finding about managers is that they tend to come from stable home backgrounds and led relatively normal and comfortable lives.
This leads them to be relatively risk-averse and they will seek to avoid conflict where possible.
Managers have a position of authority vested in them by the company, and their subordinates work for them and largely do as they are told.
Management style is transactional, in that the manager tells the subordinate what to do, and the subordinate does this not because they are a blind robot, but because they have been promised a reward (at minimum their salary) for doing so.
They are always good with people, and quiet styles that give credit to others (and takes blame on themselves) are very effective at creating the loyalty that great leaders engender.
Although leaders are good with people, this does not mean they are friendly with them.
