If you have a spare half hour on your lunch break you should check out Meri William's brilliant Dare Conf 2013 talk, 'Studies in Terror: Becoming a People Manager'. She was head of Delivery on the Gov.uk website and is now currently at Vodafone.

The talk explains her role as a project manager, from baking cake for tech to understanding the complexity of motivation. I found it useful to help me understand the role of a project manager in big teams . She explains in clear terms what a good project manager should and shouldn't do and how they can get the best out of individuals.
