The basic assumption of our research is the existence of three archetypes of leadership : the Manger focusing on reducing complexity and optimizing through planning and organizing, the leader focusing on new directions and change, thus on people, and the entrepreneur focusing on business opportunities and innovation, thus on the market.

What do you think about these archetypes ? Are they in line with your observations and thinking ?

Our initial findings are that there are some individuals, who have a strength both in the Manager and Leader role, some are both strong Leaders and Entrepreneurs, but very rarely we found individuals who are strong as Manager and as Entrepreneur.
