Part I: Introduction > What is a Boss?

Chapter 1. What is a Boss?

Several words are used interchangeably to designate a person who receives direction, training, correction, etc., from another. These words include employee, direct report, staff.

The words boss, manager and supervisor mean those responsible by title and actions for leading, training and evaluating other people. Usually these people have a designated management position in the organization. However, they may assume supervisory roles in time-limited situations such as task forces, committees or when an employee “fills in” for a supervisor.
