Hi all,

I've been working on leading a group of developers at my company, where are handle a variety of tasks from extending an existing software framework to fixing bugs and writing javascript functions.

I've been thinking and considering lots of options in order to improve my skill set and satisfy any requirements that are/will be/ emerging from within my organization, and apparently the requirement is to manage a bigger, distributed, different personalities teams with challenges in terms of communications, specifications, managing customers expectations, ..... I've already got several "technical" certifications under my belt in addition to years of hands-on experience so I'm not worried about that, what I really looking to develop is more of the soft skills/managerial side of such requirement.

my question here is what should I do to fill such a position: in terms of certification/diploma/degree?

your advice is highly appreciated.
