hierarchy. The more subordinates reporting to an employee, the higher the hierarchy.

So if you have a manager who reports to you, but has no direct reports, they will probably be at the top of the hierarchy. This is because when a manager reports to you, it means they are the point of contact for your subordinates.

If you have a manager who reports directly to someone like your boss, but has no direct reports, they will be at the top of the hierarchy. It’s the same logic as above, except that they are the point of contact for your subordinates.

Another way to look at the hierarchy is as a circle. If you have 10 people who report to someone, they are on a ladder with the person who reports to them on the top. If you have 10 people who report directly to someone, they are at the top of the ladder and the person who reports to them is the person who reports to them.

This is an important distinction for organizations, but not one that is very often understood. For instance, in my current job I am responsible for a department called Sales, and the president of this department is the leader of the sales team. The leader reports to me, but my direct reports are the VP of Sales, VP of Purchasing, and VP of Marketing. The VP of Marketing reports to me, but my direct reports are the VP of Marketing and VP of Sales (and VP of Finance).

I should clarify that my direct reports are my direct reports. If I did not have direct reports they would be less of a distinction. But it’s a good distinction and one that is generally understood.

The manager of the sales department has the best sense of direction, but the VP of Sales would be less of a distinction. The VP of Marketing is the VP of Sales, VP of Finance, and VP of Sales and Finance. I’m not saying that’s the best way to go. I’m saying that I can talk to the manager who is in charge of the sales department and say, “I’m not talking to my manager.

In some cases, however, the manager is the one with the greatest sense of direction. For example, if you have a VP of sales, a VP of marketing, and a VP of finance, then your VP of sales is the one who has the most direct authority. Sometimes, however, it is the VP of sales who has the greatest sense of direction.

The best way to find out what direction the manager is working in is to ask her directly. You can call him and ask him what he’s working on and what he thinks he can accomplish. That’s also a great way to find out what his priorities are because it gives you a better sense of who he really is.

You can do the same thing with the VP of marketing. Ask him what his priorities are, what hes working on, and what hes thinking about doing. You can also ask him what hes doing that is making him unhappy. You can even ask him if you can go to lunch and get some ideas for what you want to do. This is a good conversation to have with him because it gives you a sense of who hes actually trying to be.

Wow! I can't believe we finally got to meet in person. You probably remember me from class or an event, and that's why this profile is so interesting - it traces my journey from student-athlete at the University of California Davis into a successful entrepreneur with multiple ventures under her belt by age 25
