Creating a focus on results 

Leaders who focus on results have two main characteristics: They take initiative and maintain a wide perspective. Different balances of these two traits combine to create different strengths or weaknesses, resulting in the following categories:*Plodder: People with low initiative and a narrow perspective tend to stick to the rules, equating process with productivity and control with competence. They also tend to hinder creativity and innovation.

*Dreamer: Employees with a wide perspective and low initiative tend to understand the importance of the goal, but do not tend to take action beyond the status quo.

*Hyper-actor: Frenzied workers with a narrow perspective and high initiative spin their wheels but make no progress toward their goals.

*Hidden leader: With a wide perspective and high initiative, these leaders understand the goals and are not afraid to take action.
