48 Laws of Power is a better way to learn about Machiavellianism and other advanced political games.

First, Break All the Rules. Based on Gallup research and breaks down what separates great managers from average ones, and the importance and impact of great managers. Gives specific, actionable practices and many if not most are non-intuitive (hence the title).

After reading it, I also connected the dots that leadership at Deloitte must have read it, because many of the changes to how Deloitte handles performance management and counseling that I didn’t understand seem like they were inspired by the content of this book.

When I became a new manager (last year) I bought Harvard’s Business Reviews “10 Must Reads for New Managers” and subscribed to Managers Tool Podcast and started from the very first episode advising one-on-ones with direct reports. Game changer. I’m also considering going to Managers Tools conference where they hold an in person clinic.

Beside that, spend most of your work-oriented reading time on business memoir, bio, or profile books (positive and negative stories), to build empathy for client perspectives and experiences.

I feel like I'm at my wits end. I teach self-contained classes and according to the ISBE website my classes shouldn't be more than 8 students unless I have an aide - then it can be 10. I have no aide and most of my classes are around 14 kids. Some with behavior plans that are only out of our behavior room setting for my class... Is anybody else out there going through illegal class sizes for self-contained? How are you dealing? Maybe a vent session is in order.
