From a visionary to a commander, there are different types of bosses. By understanding the leadership style of your manager, you'll be able to work with them better and create a path for success.

If your boss is a "visionary," then they're likely dreaming big things but having trouble acting on their thoughts. To assist this type of leader, help them understand their goal and create a clear path to achieving it.
