You'll need to call Get manager a number of times - see my example below.  You could also call get manager in a loop X number of times but you would need variables to store each manager or create an array and add to the array.

It sounds as though you are selecting the output of the wrong Get Manager action via Dynamic properties when you are entering an approver in the Approval action.  Guaranteed - if you select the correct Get manager it will work for you.  I think you'll find it less confusing if you change the names of the various Get Manager actions per my example.
