@pragmaticsenses Thanks David. Will check these out. I actually have "How to win friends and influence people" sat on my shelf!

Tribes by Seth Godin is the best book I've read on the subject. A very short, a but perspective-changing read.

Ben, I work in this field and would be happy to help you with some resources. David has some good suggestions below - I also recommend Brian Tracy as an author.

I can highly recommend this course from Harvard Business Manager: it is honestly not cheap, but it's super hands on while it goes very in depths. very good material to read. Great for new managers or a refresher on best practices. I can also recommend just to read the Harvard Business Review: - lots of free great articles.
