List all consultants and their managers

I am able to extract all the information required but not getting managers in the resultset. My resultset lists all consultants, but not who their managers are

SELECT   Consultant.ConsultantID
, Consultant.FirstName
, Consultant.LastName
, cast(StartDate as date) [Start Date]
, Consultant.CareerLevel, Sales.RetailSales
, Sales.RetailSalesTotal
, Sales.Unit
, Unit.UnitName
,Consultant.AccountStatus
, CareerLevel.CareerLevelName --lists if consultant or manager

FROM         Consultant INNER JOIN
                      Sales ON Consultant.ConsultantID = Sales.ConsultantID 
                      INNER JOIN Unit ON Consultant.UnitID = Unit.UnitID
                      INNER JOIN CareerLevel 
                         ON CareerLevel.CareerLevelID = Consultant.CareerLevelID
WHERE Startdate between '01/01/2010' and '12/31/2012'

How would you know who is the manager of a consultant. Your query contains no tracks of a ManagerID (or similar) column, nor did you post any DDL for your tables, so it's hard to tell.

On a more conceptual note: Look at recursive CTEs.

CareerLevelID determines if a consultant is a director or not. So, I am looking to display the names of directors as well as the consultants below them. CareerLevel 6+ is director

CareerLevelID determines if director or not. CareerLevelID of 6 and up is director level. CareerLevelID is a flag in Consultant table.

Table schemas would be helpful here. For example why would a manager be listed in a consultant table? It doesn't make a lot of sense.

Ok. So now we know who is à director. But My question was about the relation a consultant has to à director. How do one know which director is Consultant A:s manager?
