There used to be an advertisement aimed at recruiting teachers and it consisted of famous people talking about their 'amazing' teacher - the one they all remembered and who had made such a big difference to their lives. The gist was that being a teacher is important work (with a sub-text that to be an extraordinary teacher is rare).
Well my experience of corporate life, admittedly mainly in financial services, suggests that 'great' managers are as rare as the ad suggested that great teachers are.
We all have memories of great teams, great projects and usually they have involved great managers who brought out of us more than we thought we were capable of. Speaking personally the feeling of having support and back-up never left me.
