I went on a Krauthammer course

which was excellent. One of the most effective bits was how to take 
meetings which, let's face it, is half a manager's job. One particularly 
good exercise was simulating a phone meeting by having everyone turn 
their chairs around. Surprisingly the skills for a phone meeting tend to 
make a face to face meetings smoother as well.

I also like reading the management stuff at Rands in Repose

I don't agree with everything he says but there's some good, distilled 
common sense in there.
