Management Job Titles: Which One Fits You?

We all know what managers do because we’ve all worked under at least one (if not many) over the course of our careers. And, boy, can they impact our lives – both at the office and personally. On one hand, a bad manager can torpedo morale and even drive us to seek a new job. Someone who is good at managing others, on the other hand, will inspire and motivate us. In the same way, managers – good and bad - directly impact our happiness at work (and in life).
