    ****support**** your team, don't command. Do that and anything else is extra

    Experience and not being a self serving, self important, self ass covering twat.
    I do have one book recommendation which is one of my favourite books: https://amazon.com/Leaders-Eat-Last...
    There is a short version on YouTube: https://youtu.be/cXBov9KVoTE
    There are other clips from him as well and some Ted talks. I recommend you look for them.
    Good luck!

    Congrats! Can't think of any books off the bat, but be there for your people as a CO-worker, and not a BOSS. Support them, don't push them under the bus. Be a leader, not a manager. Celebrate their life events. Buy them donuts. I'm not joking.

    I used to have a whole list of military text that dad had provided but for the life of me I can't remember which was which. I think we were soldiers was one, maybe starship troopers (the book) as well but then that one may have been more about politics and combat life, I can't remember.

    Books can't make you a good manager, your behavior can. Be a good colleague, give them a way to go, help them on their doubts and work with them on few things. Give them a shade if something went wrong as a team rather than blaming them.

    Dilbert: Way of the weasel.

    There are more books about management out there - Dilbert will show up with the real hazards.

    Ah, now I remember. Leadership Secrets of Atilla the Hun. In spite of the title, it's a common sense book. I've always thought a head on the end of a pike to be pretty motivational. Seriously, a good book.
