Good managers are good facilitators - they teach and motivate others to use their own strengths to further the group.  They also see the big picture and manage each person with the big picture in mind.  Also, good managers typically don't do more work than everyone else (a common misconception).  The very definition of manager is that they are able to balance the group and direct the work that needs to get done in to the hands of the most capable person(s).
