There are several different types of managers; some managers simply manage, some lead, and some stand out front; alone. Sometimes, these loners look back to see if anyone is following. The manager was assumed to have all the answers and was incapable of mistakes. Back then, the manager slipped into a telephone booth and changed into his Superman costume. Now, there are no more supermen or women, no more phone booths either. I mean, s/he could change at a gas station, in the loo (toilet stall). However, the world is suspicious of supermen/women; and a mild mannered Clara/Clark Kent, is enough of a hero to save the day (usually). So, we talk about unlikely heroes and the phrasal verbs that help us do business with them.
Answer to the two exercises; exercise 1, Off, upon, on, down, up with. Answers to exercise 2, point out, figure out/work out (both will work), back out, deal with, figure out/work out (both will work) and run through.
