This week HSJ expands its Resource Centre section to provide managers with even more practical inspiration on how to do their jobs.

As well as the one minute reviews of management books, the coaching column and four pages of tips on how to approach NHS management issues, each week there will now be a dedicated page of advice on people management and human resources.

This week we provide advice on how managers can develop mental toughness to overcome stress. Next week will discuss the art of balancing leadership and delegation.

In addition there will be fortnightly articles on technology and legal issues. This week the technology page looks at how IT can be used to provide support for people with mental illness, while next week’s legal page helps you tackle any outbreak of swine flu sickies among your staff.

All these articles and much more practical advice can be found on the Resource Centre page at
