Manager Tools is an excellent podcast on how to become an effective manager and I have highlighted it here in Career Opportunities in the past.

Hosts, Michael Auzenne and Mark Horstman offer this description of the show on their web site...
"Manager Tools is a weekly podcast focused on helping you become a more effective manager and leader. Each week we’ll be talking about new tools and easy techniques you can use to help achieve your management and career objectives. If you’re tired of a lot of management theory and would rather learn specific actions you can take TODAY to improve your management performance, we think you’ll enjoy the manager tools podcast."
