Editor’s Note: This post is by Paul Slezak, Cofounder and CEO of RecruitLoop – the World’s largest marketplace of expert Recruiters and Sourcers available on-demand.

People don’t leave companies. They leave leaders.

I’ll never forget when one of my former bosses looked me in the eye and told me that when I let him know that one of my team members had handed in her resignation.

It hurt.

Dissatisfaction with a manager’s leadership style (or lack thereof) is one of the primary motivators for someone switching jobs.

So how do you tell if you’re an effective leader? Are you firm and assertive? Or do you take a more laid-back approach?

Have you ever wondered how your leadership style stacks up against some of the most famous fictional bosses of all time? In this flowchart from our friends at GetVoIP, you can answer questions based on your own tendencies and discover which fictional leader’s style most closely matches your own!

Follow the flowchart below to find out if you’re more of a Ron Swanson, Michael Scott, Selina Meyer or Miranda Priestly!
