    Congrats on the new job.
    I have read books by Dale Carnegie, How too Win Friends and Influence People. It was written back in the 30's yet still holds true today on how to deal with people. Dr. John Maxwell has some good leadership books. Develpoing the Leader With-in You to name one. Another good one is Difficult Conversations, I had to read that for a graduate class, and Life Scripts give you pointers on what to say whe. If your hopsital is part of VHA they usually gives a leadership workshop yearly. They do it by geographic location. One was just offered her in the north east. Fred Pryor seminars and Rockhurst University offer leadership seminars and both can be accesssed on line.
    Good Luck!
