Greetings, Jimvy, and welcome. You asked:

<<I've read a lot about people changing employers and rolling their 401K into a personally managed IRA.

I'd like to do this (because I think my employer funds are poorly managed) but I'm not ready to leave my employer. Is this possible?>>

In general, you cannot move your 401k plan money from that plan until you leave that job. Some plans, though, do provide for in-service rollovers to an IRA of PART (not all) of your account based on age and/or years of participation in the plan. You should check with your benefits administrator to see if your plan is one that does. Otherwise, you'll have to wait until you depart that job to move the cash.
