managing people

I would also like to hear from people who manage lab technicians and 
students.  I am a relatively new faculty member and the only woman 
scientist in my department.  I find the management of students and 
technicians to be one of the things I like the least.  I have never 
had leadership or management training.

What is the 
best way to interact with these people?  Do you interact on a 
personal level or in a very distant, professional way?  How do you 
develop a thick skin for the times when people disappoint you or act 
inappropriately?  Is there some kind of training program which helps 
develop people/managerial skills?

BTW, I enjoyed the thread about being recognized in groups.
