Looking for recommendations on a good book/resource on how to manage people, especially when you’re managing teams to achieve tight deadlines and also overall leadership for those teams. Currently on a project with tight regulatory deadlines and feel like I’m struggling to push people without pissing them off. Great learning curve for me and a good read seems timely. TIA!

I’ve been a product manager for about seven months now. My base salary is 85K (Midwest). Two months into my role, my senior PM left the company, and I’ve essentially been working without any direct supervision until this week. Despite that, I took ownership of majority of the things that my senior PM had on his plate and busted my ass. Now, my year end “merit” increase is 1.78%.
